What is the difference between solar powered generators & standby generators?

What is the difference between solar powered generators & standby generators?

When asking what the difference is between solar power generators and home standby generators, the answer is simple. Fuel source.

  • Solar powered generators are built with specialized solar panels that capture energy from the sun and store it for later use. That way the generator can supply energy to a home either during a power outage or as supplemental power during peak hours (AM & PM).
  • Home standby generators tap into an existing fuel source like natural gas or propane (which is setup during generator installation) as a permanent backup power solution.

At this time, GE does not offer a line of solar powered generators.

GE Innovation Makes Standby Generators More Energy-Efficient

GE Generators does, however, offer a wide range of generators with energy efficient options that seamlessly provide backup energy in the event of a weather or grid failure related power outages. Symphony II power management technology saves energy by managing power to home appliances as needed, lowering the backup power supply and fuel needed to power the essentials.
