Greengear has a number of power options in their product line of portable propane/LPG fueled generators, but do you know how to calculate what kind of power you'll need? Extreme weather conditions and over-burdened power grids make power outage a more common occurrence. Whether it's summer and you find yourself in sweltering heat without air-conditioning, or you just filled the freezer after a summer of gathering garden vegetables, or you are working from home and find yourself suddenly without battery power for your devices, a generator can save the day. Or you may be shopping for a generator that will be handy and light for camping or other recreational activities. If you've never purchased a generator, you'll be amazed to find how many models exist! Fundamentally though, there are two broad categories of generators.
For private, home or recreational use, generators have power ranges that start at 2 kW and go up to 7 kW (enough to power an entire home). The first thing you'll need to do is determine your wattage requirements by making a list of the essential appliances and equipment that will be running. Add up the wattage requirements, then multiply that number by 1.5, as appliances will need extra wattage to power the start up. By checking the product manual or the indications on the appliance, you will find the wattage specified. Here are just a few appliances, with an average wattage, just to give you an idea which range your total will fall under.
Please refer to this page to calculate the total Watts you need and find the perfect generator for you.
