How A Standby Generator Works

A generator is a fantastic piece of equipment that provides electricity during power outages. Whether it’s due to a storm or any other reason, generators ensure that your lights stay on, your fridge keeps running, and your devices stay charged. But have you ever wondered how a generator works? Let’s break it down:

  1. Power Monitoring: The heart of a standby generator system is the automatic transfer switch. This device continuously monitors the power coming from your utility. It’s on alert 24/7, ready to jump into action the moment it detects a power outage.
  2. Start-up: Once the transfer switch senses a power outage, it sends a signal to the generator to start up. The generator will typically start running within seconds of a power interruption.
  3. Power Transfer: After the generator starts, the transfer switch safely disconnects your property from the utility grid and switches over to the generator as the source of power. This happens seamlessly and automatically, ensuring no disruption to your electricity supply.
  4. Power Supply: The generator now supplies power to your home or business until the utility power is restored. It can power everything from lights and appliances to heating or cooling systems, depending on the generator’s capacity.
  5. Automatic Shutdown: Once the utility power is back on, the transfer switch senses this, switches back to using the utility power, and sends a signal to the generator to shut down. Your property is then reconnected to the grid, and the standby generator returns to its monitoring mode, ready for the next power outage.


In essence, a standby generator works autonomously to keep your property powered during outages, offering you uninterrupted comfort and peace of mind. With our professional installation service, you can have this reliable backup power system right at your doorstep.
