Cost-Effective:

Most generators run on gasoline, propane, natural gas or diesel. Although any type of emergency generator will offer your home or business temporary power during outages, diesel is a more cost-effective fuel. It offers more power per ounce of fuel than propane, natural gas or gasoline. Diesel is not expensive or difficult to get, either.

Safe:

Though diesel is flammable, it is less volatile and flammable than other fuels. This may seem insignificant, but most power outages are caused by hurricanes, tropical storms and other damaging weather, which in turn can cause dangerous conditions. Using a highly volatile fuel compounds an already dangerous situation.

Easy To Use:

Its true, backup diesel generators can be a little intimidating for first time buyers. Most backup diesel generators have easy and straightforward maintenance and operation, especially if your generator is professionally installed. You should always follow safety procedures and read all of the literature about your generator. 

Be Prepared:

Once you’ve had your generator installed, you should be able to get through most power outages, as long as the generator itself is still standing. But, rest assured, your diesel generator is designed to endure extreme weather and rugged conditions.
