What size KW generator do I need?
The size generator you need depends on what you would like to operate when the utility goes out. The basic needs like water, heat, sump pump, refrigerator general lights and plugs can be easily handled by a 7.5 kW. The basics plus microwave, kitchen circuits, freezers and more general lights and plugs would be a 10 kW. If you want the electric water heater, we recommend a 14 kW. If you have an electric oven 18 kW. Finally, if you would rather not worry about anything and just go on about your business as usual, I would recommend between a 22 kW and a 26 kW depending on the loads. There are some cases, using load shedding techniques we could put a smaller generator on your whole house but this is case by case basis. If you have a larger home or business, then liquid cooled generators are available from 22KW to 150KW.
