Portable Generators: Designed to Go Wherever You Do

These days, everything we do is associated with electricity. From homeowners to businesses, everyone needs power. As a result, when power outages occur or your summer adventures take you off the grid, it can be quite difficult to carry out day-to-day tasks without a steady power supply. Luckily, with a portable generator, you can take power with you wherever you go!

Portable vs. Standby Generators 

Before you decide whether to make an investment in a portable or standby generator, it is important to understand the difference. Although they both keep power running, there are some significant differences. While a portable generator can be an immediate solution, it is temporary and relies on gasoline. Contrarily, a standby generator is an automatic and permanent solution that runs on propane or natural gas. Another major difference is that portable generators can be much harder to run during extremely cold weather. This can be problematic, especially during Canadian winters. Although they are great systems to have, they can be unreliable when compared to standby generators.
