Guide to Buying a Generator from General Power Limited: What to Expect

Posted by

Buying a generator for commercial and industrial use can be a complex and time-consuming process. Getting help and guidance from a backup power expert can streamline this process, save time and ensure you are selecting the right generator for your unique power needs.

Our power experts work with you throughout the generator purchase process. Here’s what you can expect when buying a generator General Power.

Buying a Generator: Why You Need an Expert

Generators come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from smaller mobile generators to large commercial-grade generators. Selecting the right generator for your power needs is not always straightforward, and a backup power expert can streamline the entire process by assisting you with the most complex aspects of generator selection.

Our generator experts are an invaluable resource for:

Generator Sizing and Selection

Choosing the right size generator depends on what you need to power, how often, and for how long. You can estimate what size generator you need by itemizing which systems and devices you need to run during a power outage.

For large commercial applications, however, this can be an extremely time-consuming process. A General Power expert can help expedite this process by working closely with you to identify key systems and devices you may need during a loss of power. 

Quality Assurance

Industry-leading generator brands like Kohler-SDMO and John Deere manufacture high-quality parts that can perform well for long periods of time — but just because a generator appears to be manufactured by a leading brand does not mean that every part within it is original and not a lower quality Chinese-made copy.

Our experts can not only help you choose the right generator, but also ensure that the generator you purchase is made with individually-serialized, 100% original parts designed for both durability and reliability.

Regulatory Compliance

To cut down on air pollution caused by engine emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency requires that portable and stationary generators must comply with a number of environmental and emissions regulations. Some states like California have their own regulations as well.

Our standby power experts have a deep understanding of these regulations, and can help you select a generator that fits your needs while remaining compliant with all relevant local and national regulations.
