Generac knows power outages, like ones during lightning storms, are inconvenient and can even be catastrophic to your life. That's why the company says you need a Home Standby Generator, which makes sure you always have the power you need. When utility power is disrupted, the generator takes over, so power stays on at the house for 15 minutes or four days. During the Double Your Power Event, customers receive a free Portable Inverter Generator, so they never lose power again. Generac believes customers should control their power and control their life.
