How Does a Home Backup Generator Work?

A Generac home backup generator senses a power outage, turns on automatically, and delivers backup power to your home. It will run until utility power returns - whether that's two hours or two weeks.

1 Utility Power Is Lost

Perhaps it's a storm. Maybe it's an equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone.

2 Your Generac Generator Senses A Problem

Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home's power.

3 The Generator Turns On Automatically - Whether You’re Home Or Away

Within a few seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity.

4 Your Electricity Is Restored

The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns.

I would highly recommend White Electric Company to install a Generac Generator. Mr. White is one of the nicest person I have ever met. Its hard to believe he owns the company, If hes not available he will call you back very soon and gives you his personal cell phone to contact him. They did an excellant job for me. My husband is completely disabled and they made sure my generator was installed and working properly before bad weather was to come our way. The men he hires are very nice, courtous and professional also. They took their time and explained everything to me. It is so nice not having to worry when bad weather comes our way. Thank you Mr. White and the whole team. LR-Chesapeake, Va.
