Industry Safety - Generator Placement and Sizing
Generators are growing in popularity across the nation as fragile electric grids continue to threaten outages. The realization that on-site power generation reduces the strain on the grid is creating growing interest in battery storage paired with generators. Also, the more propane appliances a home has, the smaller the generator can be. That lower kW capacity significantly reduces the installed cost.
Using a national average, an all-electric 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3200 sf slab home will require generators in the 16kW to 22kW range. A home that relies on propane for heat, hot water and more will not need to replace all that electric load, and can function with a 9kW to 16kW generator.
No matter how you're using it, propane meets your needs with unique advantages other energy sources can't deliver.
Propane will save you money, thanks to its generally lower cost and efficient performance that reduces energy bills.
Propane helps you live and work more sustainably by minimizing your carbon footprint.
Because it's stored on-site or delivered by your local supplier, propane is always there when you need it.
From America's farms, to school bus fleets, to homes and businesses across the country, propane is helping users reduce their emissions and save more money.
