Winter is just around the corner. Are you ready if the stormy season results in yet another power outage? The best way to prepare is to have a back-up generator at your home, office or job site.

Generac® and CST offer generators ranging from small portable models for your job or camp site to industrial models engineered to run a full scale office building, school or medical facility. Mid-size models are available for the average homeowner, offering everything from something that will just run a few lights and the heater fan to larger options that will run your entire home, business as usual, until power is restored.

Whether your home runs on natural gas, propane or neither Generac® has an option for you. Natural gas is becoming the preferred solution in many applications as it provides much longer runtimes, the permitting is easier, and they have 90% fewer emissions compared to diesel generators. In addition, there is virtually no maintenance associated with natural gas generators, while diesel fuel requires conditioning annually. While diesel is the primary fuel for the portable units, built-ins can be natural gas, propane or even bi-fuel. Bi-fuel options can run on natural gas or propane but can switch to the diesel option when natural gas may be unavailable.


As you prepare for the upcoming snow season, consider a Generac® generators from CST General Contractors Inc.
