Generac has launched a low cost per kW protection standby 22kW generator.
The Guardian genset series comes with the company’s purpose-built OHVI engine and controller, including a dual-line tri-lingual LCD display.
The genset is engineered for standby power applications and includes a feature to ensure reliable operation to power sensitive electronics and appliances, according to the company. The engine runs at 1800rpm, which makes it quieter, less fuel consuming and extends therefore the service life of engine and alternator.
“Previously, if a homeowner needed a generator with a little more ‘oomph’ than they could get from a 20kW home standby, they’d have to invest several thousand dollars more for a 22kW liquid-cooled generator,” said Jake Thomas, senior product manager at Generac. The 22kW air-cooled home standby should set a new price and performance benchmark claimed the company. The recommended retail price of the new series is $4,699. “Our new 22kW Guardian Series generator provides that extra power for only a few hundred dollars more. That’s a tremendous value for our customers,” added Thomas.
The genset is compatible with a remote monitoring system that allows US and Canadian homeowners to monitor the status of their power system via electronical devices.
