Generac has five new models of liquid-cooled standby generators, with outputs from 22 to 60 kW. Four of the units feature a low-speed engine for minimal sound output. The generators run on natural gas or liquid propane and include a corrosion-resistant aluminum enclosure, a run-time meter for monitoring exercise and maintenance levels, and updated paint colors. The generators' lightweight allows roof mounting and enables installation without large cranes or specialized equipment.
