Standby Generator: Benefits for your home

A home standby generator is the answer to Mother Nature’s mood swings! Keep the lights on, the movie playing and the coffee brewing. It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing. A Kohler generator restores your power automatically and keeps you connected to what you love to do!
