How Generators Work

Whole-home backup generators work as a failsafe, stepping in to power your home the moment there's a disruption in the electrical grid. Unlike portable generators, which only power select appliances and need to be manually activated and refueled regularly, a whole-home generator automatically takes over and powers your entire home.

When a power outage occurs, an automatic transfer switch inside the generator senses the loss of grid power and signals the generator to start. Once the generator is running, the transfer switch safely disconnects the utility line and simultaneously connects the generator line to your home's electrical system. This entire process happens within seconds of a power loss, ensuring minimal disruption to your home's electricity supply.

Once the grid power is restored, the transfer switch senses this change, disconnects the generator, and reconnects your home to the grid. The generator then shuts off and goes back into standby mode, ready to spring into action again when the need arises. This automatic operation means you don't have to be present to start or stop your backup generator, letting you focus on your family during extended power outages.

How a Backup Generator can Compliment a Solar Energy System

A backup generator can act as an exceptional complement to a solar energy system, ensuring continuous power supply even during periods of insufficient solar production. During the day, solar panels generate electricity to power your home, and any excess is stored in the battery for use at night or during periods of low sunlight. However, in instances when solar energy production is low, such as during prolonged periods of overcast weather or when the stored energy in the battery is depleted, a backup generator that runs on traditional fuel sources can still power the lights, appliances, and outlets you need.

A backup generator can also protect your solar investment from damaging power surges and other byproducts of a power outage. In the event of a grid failure, a generator can prevent the back-feeding of electricity into the grid, which can damage your solar panels. By pairing a solar power system with a backup generator, you're not only reinforcing your home's energy independence but also enhancing the resilience and reliability of your entire home energy system.
