Your power can go out at any time, but finding peace of mind doesn’t have to be a headache, as it can often be with portable generators. Although they can be ideal for tailgating, camping and other outdoor uses, portable generators can be very noisy and require cords, cables and usually gasoline to operate, and they must be started up manually. Standby generators, on the other hand, are safe, permanent backup solutions for your home. Professionally installed and always at the ready, they automatically turn on the moment an outage strikes. Then they run powerfully, quietly and efficiently until the outage is over. They’re simply the best choice for-backing up your home and . keeping you Always On…

Installing a standby generator requires a qualified professional and compliance to various codes (national, state and local). Fortunately, Cummins has plenty of Authorized Dealers who can help! The following is a guide for a typical installation:
First, a transfer switch-an electrical device that connects your home to power from either your generator or your utility provider-is installed.
Next, your generator is installed outside of your home. The location will depend on a variety of factors and code compliance requirements.
Your generator is then wired to the transfer switch.
The fuel lines (either propane or natural gas) are now connected to the generator. That’s it! Your generator is ready to give you years of safe, dependable backup power. Regular servicing is recommended to keep everything in working order. Your Cummins Authorized Dealer can give you the details.
Electricity can’t always be trusted. Bad weather, an aging infrastructure, accidents, animals and human error are just some of the reasons the power can go out. In fact, more than 36 million people nationwide experienced a power outage last year.* Here’s how a standby generator works to protect you during an outage.
* “Eaton’s Blackout Tracker Annual Report shows 36.7 million people affected by more than 3,500 power outages in 2017,” www.Eaton.com, March 2018.
