Generator Types and Maintenance Guide

When power from the local grid isn't available, generators step in. What does a generator do? Generators use a fuel supply, such as diesel, gasoline or naturel gas, to provide electrical energy. They provide backup power in case of blackouts and can serve as a power source in areas where electric service isn't available. You can use them to power everything from single devices to the electrical systems of entire buildings. There are various types of generators, which work best in different situations. To get the most out of your generator, it's important that you choose the right type and maintain it properly. This guide will tell you what you need to know.
