Standby Generators Instead of waiting for the utility company to restore power, people are taking matters into their own hands to insure their investments from financial disaster caused by prolonged power outages.

These permanently mounted generators are commonly fueled by reliable natural gas or propane. The electricity is then routed into the home or business through an automatic transfer switch, which also automatically starts and stops the generator.
