Generac’s 7.5 kW home standby generator is the most affordable, automatic alternative to portable backup power. Significantly quieter than a portable generator, it protects the home’s most essential circuits, like refrigerators, well pumps and select appliances, without having to manually set up during inclement weather, refuel, or run electrical cords.

          Features

          • Powers 8-circuits of your home with the 50 Amp, Nema 1 (indoor rated only) lightweight transfer switch.
          • Generac OHV engine specifically designed for generator use, provides the reliability to power through the most severe outages.
          • Digital Controller features LED indicators for generator status, utility power presence, or maintenance required.
          • Third-party certified to NFPA standards to be installed as close as 18-inches from the home's exterior wall, provided it is located away from doors, windows, and fresh-air intakes, and unless otherwise directed by local codes.
          • 3-year limited warranty.
          • True Power Technology provides best-in-class power quality with less than 5 percent total harmonic distortion for clean, smooth operation of your sensitive electronics and appliances.
          • Durable powder-coat finish helps make the sturdy, Galvanneal steel enclosure perfect for all weather conditions.
