There are two categories of residential generators: automatic standby and portable. J.D. Power Systems offers and services both types and we’re happy to help you decide which power solution will work best for your needs.
Automatic standby systems are powered by natural gas or liquid propane and offer virtually unlimited continuous run times. These easy to use systems restore power to your furnace, refrigerator, or whole home within seconds of a power outage regardless of whether you are home when the power fails. Most homeowners prefer the worry free backup that automatic standby generators provide.
Portable products require a manual connection and are functional for providing on-the-go power. Portable systems are typically fueled with gasoline and can provide run times of up to ten hours before refueling is needed. These systems are housed within wheeled frames, so they can be easily transported to provide power wherever and whenever you need it.
