Are you looking for a small backup generator that tackles your family's needs when the power goes out? Perfect for smaller to medium-sized homes, the 13kW1 generator systems by GE boasts a footprint that is 15% smaller than other standby generators to blend in beautifully with your home's exterior and landscaping.

In addition to blending seamlessly with your home's landscaping, home generators by GE stay in good condition with a durable all-weather finish. This industrial-grade finish on the generator enclosure ensures seasons of backup power too, by staving off corrosion, chipping and abrasion without the need for a bulky aluminum enclosure.

GE 13kW1 generators' engines are rugged and long-lasting, produced by Briggs & Stratton™. The small generators are automatically connected to your natural gas or liquid propane utility, saving you the need to store gas and endure inclement weather to refuel a portable generator. New GE generators also include our patented Symphony® II Power Management System that allows you to meet the power needs of your whole house by prioritizing your appliances.

The electricity supplied by GE standby generators is clean and stable, similar to your utility provider's. It can safely power your computers and other sensitive electronics, keeping your e-mail communications accessible through whatever Mother Nature throws at you. 

Home generators by GE demand minimal maintenance and don't require constant monitoring by you to figure out when repairs or troubleshooting is necessary. GE generators can be outfitted with the sophisticated infohub™ generator monitoring system that can send you generator status updates via mobile devices.
