While all homeowners eventually experience extended power outages, the issue can be particularly challenging for residents living in hurricane-prone areas, or those in more rural areas. That's why propane is a superior choice for fueling standby generator systems.
A propane standby generator is connected directly to the main propane supply tank. Since the fuel supply for the generator is on-site, emergency power will be there automatically during a power outage. On average, a 250-gallon underground propane tank fueling a seven-kilowatt standby generator would provide enough electricity to power a home for five days, while a 500-gallon underground tank would provide 11 days of power.Remember, a power outage can happen anytime, anywhere. Help your customers keep the lights on with a dependable propane standby generator.
