What is a Backup Generator?
A backup generator is permanently installed
outdoors, much like an air-conditioning unit is. The generator operates
on your home's existing fuel source - whether that's natural gas or liquid
propane (LP). Sun Energy's standby power system includes the generator,
automatic transfer switch, battery charger and distribution panel. The
transfer switch is the brain of your backup power system. It continually
monitors the utility power for an interruption. If utility power fails,
the transfer switch automatically starts the generator, transfers the electrical
loads and restores power to your home. When utility power resumes, the
transfer switch reverses the process... again, automatically, whether you're
home or away.
