A standby generator means any power outage only lasts the few seconds it takes for your generator to automatically spin up—less than a minute. But, until now, getting whole-house coverage easily meant installing a larger liquid-cooled generator which requires about five-feet of clearance all around it. That is, until now. Because, parallel power allows more power in less space.
Parallel Power is a game changer
Kohler has come up with a system to synchronize multiple generators automatically depending on your demand. This new technology provides flexibility and redundancy. If one generator requires service or even fails, the other generator is still available to provide power.
What parallel power means to you.
Because of this smart generator management, one generator comes on line when the power goes out. Then, if your power demands exceed the first generator’s capacity, the second generator spins up and synchronizes with the first one to provide added capacity.
This means you can get two Kohler air-cooled generators to provide combined capacity of a larger liquid-cooled generator. These smaller units require less clearance allowing generators to be located in areas as small as the alley between two houses.
The advantage of parallel power
Kohler’s exclusive PowerSync Automatic Paralleling Module enables the paralleling of two Kohler single-phases generators to reduce fuel consumption, provide redundant operation and extend the life of the two generators. It rotates which one starts up first when needed and balances run time across the two generators.
Like any generator solution, parallel power provides a specific solution for a specific need. Is it right for you? The best way to find out is to get the input of a qualified standby generator dealer. Tom recommends Generator Power Systems—That’s where his generator came from. Just remember that shopping for a standby home generator, means including generator size, costs, permits and installation on your checklist. Not only will a generator provide you peace of mind, it will add to the resale value of your home when the time comes to sell.
