KOHLER. Work. Play. Live.

You have the power.

Your home is a busy place. A commercial-grade KOHLER® automatic residential generator keeps that rhythm going by providing dependable protection during unexpected power outages. Clean, quiet, automatic backup power — just what your family needs to be safe and comfortable.

Whether you are home or away during a power outage, let your KOHLER residential generator help you:

  • Preserve your refrigerated food.
  • Run air conditioning or heating systems.
  • Protect your home from failing sump pumps, frozen pipes, etc.
  • Maintain your water supply.
  • Keep your home office in business.
  • Let life go on - without interruption.

What Is Backup Power?

A standby generator is permanently installed outdoors, much like an air-conditioning unit is. The generator operates on your home's existing fuel source - whether that's natural gas or liquid propane (LP). The KOHLER standby power system includes the generator, automatic transfer switch, battery charger and distribution panel.

The transfer switch is the brain of your KOHLER backup power system. It continually monitors the utility power for an interruption. If utility power fails, the transfer switch automatically starts the generator, transfers the electrical loads and restores power to your home. When utility power resumes, the transfer switch reverses the process... again, automatically, whether you're home or away.

Why Backup Power?

Every year thousands of Arkansans suffer from power outages due to mother nature or utility company cutbacks, and it's going to get worse.

Take control of your own energy needs with an efficient, affordable back up power system by Kohler. The unit runs on LP gas or natural gas and automatically kicks on when your power fails, and trust me, if you live in Arkansas, it will.

Add a Kohler back-up power system to your existing home or business and don't consider any new construction without including one.

Gas Generators

Available with 8.5 to 100kW output capabilities and higher, KOHLER generators provide worry-free emergency power to supply your total electrical needs for days, or even weeks.

And unlike portable generators that require refueling every few hours, KOHLER backup power systems are fueled by a permanent LP or natural gas connection. No hassle and no worries.

Transfer Switches

  • Installs inside or outside your home
  • Continuously monitors utility power
  • Automatically starts generator whether you're home or not
The transfer switch is the brain of your KOHLER backup power system. It continuously monitors the utility power for an interruption. If utility power fails, the transfer switch automatically starts the power system, transfers the electrical loads and restores power to your home. When utility power resumes, the transfer switch reverses the process... again, automatically!

Automatic Within seconds of a utility power outage, the transfer switch - working in tandem with the generator - starts the genset to restore power to the home.

Performance Slightly larger than the main distribution panel, the automatic transfer switch exercises the generator weekly to keep it performing at peak efficiency

How Backup Power Works

Your KOHLER residential backup generator system can be sized and wired for your home in one of two power distribution scenarios:

Essential Loads Power Distribution
This scenario supplies electrical power only to those devices you've pre-selected to receive power during a utility outage or power interruption. These devices are wired through a secondary, or essential loads, distribution panel. This allows a smaller generator to be used

Examples of devices and appliances that may be considered essential are:

  • Furnace
  • Lighting
  • Sump pump
  • Refrigerator/freezer
  • Security system
  • Garage door opener

Whole House Power Distribution
This scenario enables you to power all devices in your home with the generator, as if they were using normal utility power.
