Power outages can happen anytime, anywhere, and they can pose a serious inconvenience and even health risk to you and your family. Standby home generators can provide a reliable source of electricity for your home in the event of a power outage, even when you aren’t there.
Since standby generators run on either propane or natural gas, they can be hooked directly to your existing gas lines. In fact, propane marketers are able to provide homeowners with an underground tank that is protected from the elements so that a constant source of fuel is available. On average, a 250 gallon propane tank fueling a seven kilowatt standby generator would provide enough electricity to power a home for five days, while a 500 gallon underground tank would provide 11 days’ power.
