PROPANE GENERATORS

Powering More Resilient Homes & Buildings

WHY PROPANE?

Don't Get Left in the Dark

Did you know Texas is 1 of 5 out of the United States that has the
most power outages? It’s not just severe storms and natural disasters that knock out power but also aging electrical infrastructure and large electricity demand in the summer months that put a strain on our electrical grid causing rolling blackouts.

Power outages can come at any time and last for seconds, hours, or even days.

Give your home, office or critical infrastructure greater comfort, security, and safety with a propane generator.

Homes, businesses, restaurants, hospitals and other critical infrastructure are using propane generators for additional reassurance. 

Sizing

Propane generators are available in a wide variety of capacities, so there is one to fit the needs of your home, business or project.

The power output needed for a standby generator is dictated by the size of the home or building, the number and type of circuits connected to the generator, and how the owner plans to use the backup power. The generator can provide whole-house or building backup or power for only certain key appliances or operations such as air-conditioning, heating, water heating, and wells.

Quick Look: 5 Benefits

INSTANT POWER

When equipped with an automatic transfer switch, a propane standby generator can produce supplemental electricity, often in as little as 10 seconds after primary power failure.

PEACE OF MIND

With a propane standby generator, you can be assured that the lights stay on, homes and businesses can operate business as usual with access to air conditioning, heating, and devices are powered up.

DEPENDABLE

A 7kW standby generator drawing fuel from a 250-gallon propane tank
can provide enough electricity to power a home for up to 5 days. Unlike diesel or gasoline, propane won’t deteriorate
overtime. Also, propane can handle an entire energy needs for days, unlike solar- or wind-powered systems.

EASY

Propane generators are housed outside, usually adjacent to a garage, shed,
or other non-living space. These units typically draw propane from a home or building's main propane aboveground or
underground storage tank.

QUIET

Many standby generator units produce less than 60 decibels of noise — as quiet as a normal conversation.
