What size generator do I need?
The size of generator will depend on the total load of the equipment that you want to run on the generator at the same time. The following questions and answers will hopefully help you to work out what size generator set you will need. If the generator is to be used for back up only, then we recommend you select only essential services to run off the generator – such as security systems, refrigerators, freezers, essential lights, TV’s and computers. This will provide a more cost effective investment by utilising the smallest generator necessary.
