13kW1 Home Generator System

You dont need a larger generator just a smarter one! In the past, selecting a home generator system meant choosing between a smaller unit that would only power the barest essentials, or a much larger, more fuel-hungry and costly unit. Perfect for smaller to medium-sized homes, the new 13kW* Home Generator System by GE includes our Symphony II™ Power Management System allowing you to meet the power needs of your whole house, (including up to two 4-ton air conditioners). And with a footprint that is 15% smaller than our other whole house systems, these units blend in beautifully with your homes exterior and landscaping.

Why the Symphony II™ Power Management System? Well, not all appliances are powered equally. Some, such as your central air conditioner, electric clothes dryer, electric stovetop, oven, or whirlpool tub, require a large amount of power to start up or operate properly.

The Symphony II™ orchestrates these high-demand appliances with lower-demand items to give you true whole-house power with a smaller, more affordable generator. The package also includes one of the best comprehensive parts and labor warranties in the business - 4 year limited warranty** (a value of up to $140) - your guarantee of quality and performance.

  • Automatic Backup Power

    The transfer switch continuously monitors your home's connection to utility power. The standby generator starts automatically when there is a power outage and shuts down automatically when utility power is restored.

  • Symphony® II Power Management

    The patented Symphony® II power controls offer a whole house solution for virtually every size home. Most high wattage appliances require a large and expensive generator to meet the demands of a larger home. With Symphony® II Power Management, you can manage the power demands of even the most power hungry appliances.

  • Compact

    Tucked in close to your home, the 13kW1 has a sleek profile and a footprint that is 15% smaller than our other whole house systems.

  • Durable and Weather-Resistant Enclosure

    Galvanneal steel provides years of rust-resistant, outdoor protection—perfect for extreme weather conditions.

  • Electronics-friendly

    The system delivers clean, stable power, protecting your computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from damage.

  • Included Extras

    Each system includes an automatic transfer switch, hour meter, battery charger, and synthetic oil.
