What is a standby generator?

A standby home generator keeps your power on during an outage. It’s installed outside your house (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re home or away. All within seconds of a power outage.

Why Backup Power?

Keep Costs Down

Power outages cost American households $150 billion annually with weather-related outages accounting for $25 - $70 billion per year

Automatic, hands-off operation

When the power fails or drops below an acceptable level (brownout), the ATS signals the generator to start. In seconds, the ATS transfers your power from the utility to the generator.

No Refueling Needed

Unlike portable generators, KOHLER generators start and stop automatically with no need to refuel. No extension cords. No worries. No hassle.

Total Reliability

KOHLER generators endure hundreds of tests (during design and production) before they reach your home. The result is total reliability.

How It Works

Before the power goes out your automatic transfer switch monitors the electricity coming from the utility. When the power drops below an acceptable level the ATS signals the generator to start. The generator then supplies your home with electricity until the utility power is restored. When the utitlity power is restored the ATS transfers your power from the generator to the utility and your generator automatically turns off.

Transfer Switches

The transfer switch is the brain of your KOHLER home backup power system, continuously monitoring the utility power for an interruption. If utility power fails, the transfer switch automatically starts the power system, transfers the electrical loads and restores power to your home. When utility power resumes, the transfer switch reverses the process... again, automatically!
