Different industries have different concerns when it comes to standby power. Health care applications must abide by strict regulations regarding life safety. Data centers seek a certain Tier Certification. Whatever the unique needs of the industry you serve, Generac has the expertise to help you design, install, commission, and support a standby power system that will meet them.
At Generac, we have a single focus: Power. That dedication and expertise has made us the leader in gaseous-fueled standby generators, with the broadest line of standby solutions in the industry. All of our gaseous-fueled generators are made with the highest quality, most reliable materials, and feature state-of-the-art technical innovations to improve their performance and reliability. Paired with the innate reliability of natural gas, it’s the smartest choice you can make.
Generac Spark-Ignited Engines: Engineered for Standby Power
Applying gaseous fuel to standby power systems takes advanced engineering expertise to ensure reliability and long life. That’s why Generac builds its spark-ignited engines from the block up. Adding the fuel system. Hardening the valves and seats. Adjusting engine timing. This allows Generac engines to last longer, require less maintenance, and perform more reliably in a standby power system than a third-party spark-ignited engine. And each Generac engine meets the required EPA emission standards at the factory.
Reliable, Accurate, Integrated Controls Generac engineers its generator controls with safety and convenience as top priorities. PowerManager® digital controls let you monitor and control key elements of your generator system with the touch of a button or click of a mouse. In addition, features like constant monitoring capabilities, adjustable parameters and built-in protective alarms combine with seamlessly integrated components for the highest level of reliability
Protection from the Elements
By manufacturing our own generator enclosures, Generac is able to ensure each unit combines the highest level of durability with the latest engineering advancements in noise reduction, weather resistance and streamlined design.
Optimized for Performance
Generac industrial alternators are machine wound, machine inserted, and machine varnished for the ultimate in consistency. Form winding and stack bracing ensures reliable performance. Rotor spin balancing eliminates vibration. And vented rotors contribute to cooler operation, longer life and enhanced efficiency.
Rugged Base Frames
Generac’s heavy-duty base frames ensure accurate alignment between the engine and alternator at all times. Oil and water drain points are situated for easy access. Vibration isolators contribute to smooth operation. And power cable stub-ups are positioned for easy installation.
For industry, power failure is not an option.

Vertically integrated environment, ensures the highest reliability standards.
Easily serviced by any qualified diesel technician.
National industrial dealer network
Readily available replacement parts and maintenance items.
Reliability and Convenience
Generac generators are designed to meet your stringent requirements for quality electrical power and mechanical durability. They are designed for the standby or prime power requirements of industrial, commercial, health care, telecommunication and data center applications. Our systems are designed to help you with peak shaving and interruptible rate applications as well. Generac generators provide high quality and reliability at affordable and competitive prices.
When space is at a premium and reliability is critical, Generac’s Gemini Twin Pack is the answer.
An option of Generac’s modular power system (MPS), you can purchase the system you need today, and install additional units quickly and easily as your standby power requirements increase.
Packs more power into a smaller space
Gemini combines the output of two 500 kW generators packaged inside a single weather resistant and sound attenuated enclosure using Generac’s exclusive PowerManager control system. The result is 1000 kilowatts (1MW) of power in a space up to 40% smaller than a large, single engine genset.
As part of Generac’s MPS technology, up to seven Gemini gensets can be paralleled without additional switchgear, for a total output of up to 7000 kW.
Single, electrical termination point
Offers easier connection.
Inherent critical load redundancy within one common generator platform.
Gemini’s load shedding capability ensures that critical loads are covered even if one of the gensets is offline for maintenance.
Quiet, sound-attenuated operation.
Engines can be serviced by a qualified diesel technician using commonly available parts.
Generac Bi-Fuel™ generators start on diesel fuel and add natural gas as load is applied, until the unit runs primarily on natural gas. Generac’s Bi- Fuel generators are fully integrated solutions, not after-market conversions in the field. That means every component is specifically designed, engineered, and factory validated to work together. Generac Bi-Fuel generators have the added benefit of being EPA compliant from the factory—the only bi-fuel systems on the market that can make such a claim.
Risk Mitigation via Fuel Redundancy
Despite the perceived reliability of on-site diesel fuel, power outages can damage infrastructure and make diesel refueling difficult or impossible. Generac Bi-Fuel generators mitigate refueling issues by operating primarily on utility-supplied natural gas. That means less on-site diesel fuel is required and running times will be greatly extended compared to diesel-only solutions. And because the natural gas infrastructure tends not to be affected by the same conditions that lead to power outages, fuel reliability is improved.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Because natural gas costs less than diesel, fuel costs are significantly reduced over the long term. And since less on-site diesel fuel is required for long running times, installation, operational and maintenance costs are reduced.
Scalability as Part of a Modular Power System
Generac Bi-Fuel generators can be configured as part of a Modular Power System (MPS)—connected via integrated paralleling with other Generac generators. This makes the system scalable, meaning there is no need to install more power than you need.
Generac Bi-Fuel generators meet the on-site fuel requirements for emergency systems as referenced in NEC700 and NFPA 110. Less on-site diesel fuel means easier permitting. And indoor fuel installations with capacity limits per NFPA or local codes become a viable option.
Reduced Exhaust Emissions
Bi-fuel generators are cleaner and more environmentally friendly than diesel-only generators. They emit about 30% less nitrogen oxides and 50% less particulate matter than comparable diesel-only units.
