How It Works
It’s easier than you think. And here’s some more good news: you won’t lift a finger. Everything’s automatic.
Before The Power Goes Out
Your automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the electricity coming from the utility. It's working 24/7 to protect your home.
The Power Goes Out
When the power fails or drops below an acceptable level (brownout), the ATS signals the generator to start. In seconds, the ATS transfers your power from the utility to the generator.
Your Generator Powers Your Home
Your generator then supplies your home with electricity until the utility power is restored.
The Utility Power Returns
When the utility power is restored, the ATS automatically transfers your power from the generator to the utility.
Your Generator Turns Off
Your standby generator automatically shuts down, ready for the next power outage.
Power Outages Cost Americans $150 Billion a Year
Severe weather is the single leading cause of power outages in the United States. The amount and severity of these outages has spiked dramatically over the past decade, causing physical, emotional and economic hardship for many Americans. In the past few years, Massachusetts residents have experienced a number of storms and other events that have caused power outages for us – some lasting over a week. These power failures cause many losses for families across MA – including millions of dollars in losses and millions of residents without power. Whether it's from having to replace a refrigerator or freezer full of food, water damage caused by a sump pump not working due to the power being out, or anything else – it adds up quickly!
Fortunately, with a backup whole home generator, you don't have to worry about these issues. Powered by natural gas or propane, you don't have to worry about getting gas, like the smaller, portable generators. The generator is sized to your needs and your budget, so you can power as much or as little as you like.
