Backup Power & Generators

Power Up When the Power's Out

Backup power, emergency power, jobsite power, off-the-grid power… All of these (& more) require generator power. Get yours before you need it. Not sure which generator or backup power system is right for you? Let’s take a look.

Portable Generators

These traditional models are what people typically think of when they imagine a generator. Portable generators offer the most power for the cost. They also run at full speed at all times and therefore are louder than inverters and also less efficient. Portable generators work best for power outages, outdoor events, DIY projects and on job sites. Shop portable generators.

Inverter Generators

Inverter generators are more efficient and quieter than traditional generators because users can adjust the engine speed to the output needed. They also protect electronics and sensitive equipment, keeping them safe from surges. Inverter generators are ideal for power outages, camping, RVing, DIY projects, at work sites and for outdoor events. Shop inverter generators.
