Plan to Protect Your Home and Family

- Monday, September 20, 2021
South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA - KOHLER Home Standby Generator

Any home is susceptible to power outages, especially when it comes to severe weather. Being prepared is your best defense. We’ve got tips to help keep you, your family and your home safe and secure during the next power outage or weather emergency.

Develop a family emergency plan that includes important phone numbers (doctors, family members, etc.), an evacuation route and an agreed-on meeting place in case you lose communication with loved ones.

Create a kit by filling a duffle bag or lidded container with three days’ worth of food and water. Include a flashlight, battery-powered radio, battery-powered clock, extra batteries, first aid kit, cash, medications and a CD or USB drive containing important documents.

Turn off major appliances such as your water heater, oven and air conditioning units. Unplug other appliances such as TVs, stereos, microwaves and computers. This will prevent damage to appliances and possible overloads to the system when power is restored. But leave one light on so you can see when power is restored.

Familiarize yourself with your main electrical panel. You may have to turn off the main breaker or reset circuit breakers after an outage.

Keep away from fallen wires, flooded areas and storm debris. Treat all downed wires and anything touching them as though they have electricity running through them.

Consider installing a KOHLER standby generator to protect your home. A standby generator is permanently installed outside the home and runs on natural gas or propane. Standby generators turn on automatically when the power shuts off, even if you’re away from home. A transfer switch monitors utility power and transfers the electrical load to the generator if power is lost. A KOHLER generator can power everything in your home, including lights, heating/cooling systems, appliances, sump pumps, security systems and more.

Be careful if you’re using a portable generator. Use properly rated extension cords (electrical load and length). Make sure the generator is properly vented to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning; don’t place it in your home or an enclosed space like a garage. Don’t connect it directly to your home’s electrical system; electricity could flow backward into the power lines and endanger lives. Plug appliances directly into the portable generator.

‘Smart Grid Ready’ Generators for Backup Power Offer Return on Investment

- Tuesday, September 14, 2021
South Shore Generator - Smart Grid Ready Generator

Customers will now “have the opportunity to obtain additional return on investment by leveraging their Generac units to contribute energy to the grid, support grid stability and receive payment for their excess power.” Current PWRcell and home standby generator customers will be able to access Enbala’s Concerto platform through a firmware update, which will provide existing users with all the same distributed energy resources(DER) capabilities that will arrive standard on new products. Generac acquired Enbala, a DER technology company, last year.

Generac saw an opportunity to advance its product line with smart grid technology in part due to the Enbala acquisition.

What is unique, every local utility, every grid operator, every grid network has its challenges. The grid operator’s challenge is to match demand and supply. But being able to augment the supply side, or reduce the demand side, by having an asset like the generator, there’s a real value in that.

The smart grid ready product becomes a DER, able to form virtual power plants (VPPs), which are collections of DERs capable of augmenting the grid services provided by traditional power generation. In this case, the generator still functions as a traditional power backup device, powering a home or business in the event of a power outage, but now also enables the sale of power back to the grid during times of peak demand. That can reduce stress on the grid, and enables users to offset some of their energy costs.

The new product is a “comprehensive, end-to-end solution—one that combines solar, battery storage, generators and load management. Generac has taken segmented energy assets that would normally be complicated to connect and brought them together in a seamless fashion. Otherwise dormant backup power can now easily and quickly come online, creating a win-win for all—utilities achieve a cleaner grid with improved reliability and reduced cost-to-serve, while end customers receive direct financial incentives and a more stable grid for participating in VPPs.

‘Smart Grid Ready’ Generator Changes Game for Backup Power

- Friday, September 10, 2021
South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA

Residential applications for smart grid technologies continue to grow as electricity customers take more control of their energy usage and costs. Homeowners with rooftop solar have been selling power back to the grid for years, and more opportunities for power customers are coming as electric vehicle owners tap into the market via energy storage.

Homeowners and others who purchase generators, long a source of backup power during and after storms and other events, also have those opportunities, thanks to systems touted as “smart grid ready” that can be used as distributed energy resources (DERs) to help create virtual power plants (VPPs). Residential systems also are increasingly being used in demand response programs.

It’s against that backdrop that Generac Power Systems on Aug. 25 announced that its new line of home standby generators, along with commercial and industrial generators, and PWRcell solar-plus-battery storage systems are being manufactured and offered as smart grid ready. It’s part of the continuing evolution of an energy landscape increasingly turning to DERs to help balance power loads and stabilize the grid.

Through this integration, Generac customers—residential, commercial, industrial and solar—are now capable of making major contributions to grid reliability, resiliency and sustainability. Climate change and an aging electrical gird are making power outages and power shortages more frequent and longer lasting. With Smart Grid Ready, consumers can play a key role in being part of the solution.
