Question: I’m one of the unlucky families in Oklahoma that lost power for 4 days, from the winter storms. How difficult is it to install a standby generator?
Answer: Standby generators are not difficult to install, but the size and fuel of the generator you require and the installation has to be thought out. If you are considering a permanent installation there are basically 3 sizes of generators for residential applications – 10, 15 and 25 kilowatt – 3 fuels, gas, liquid propane (LP) and diesel.
