A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electrical generator (often called an alternator) to generate electric energy. Electric generators are used in places without a connection to the Electric power grid or as emergency power-supply if the grid fails. Small portable diesel generators range from about 1kVA to 10kVA and are ideal for your home power supply.
Petrol (Gasolina) generators are typically cheaper to buy than diesel units, but can be more expensive to run. Further Petrol is a more volatile fuel and great care must be taken when handling and storing petrol, most petrol generators can be converted if required to an LPG option which makes them very cost effective to run. We can offer a range of petrol units up to 10KW.
Diesel( Gasoil) Generators are more expensive to buy, however running costs can be considerably less especially if you qualify for use of Red Diesel ( Gasoil B). There are various types of diesel generator and it is important to ensure that you select the right type and power rating for your application. We would be happy to advise on generator selection and type for your use, more information can be found in our page “Which Generator” here (Insert link here)
Fitting an inverter/battery system to a generator can provide constant power to a home and significantly reduce generator run times, typically we can charge the batteries at a very high rate minimising run time, the batteries then provide power on a continuous basis to the home calling on the generator for more charge as and when required. Systems can be as small or as large as budget will allow. Visit our battery hybrid page for further system detail. (Insert Link here)
We supply and install generators and batteries where you have no power or to improve your existing power supply and create reliable power solutions for your home…
