Commercial Generators 101 for Small Business

What is a commercial generator?

A standby commercial generator keeps your power on and your business open during an outage. It’s installed outside your business (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re open or closed. All within seconds of a power outage.

Plus commercial generators run on propane or natural gas, so there’s no refueling.

KOHLER generators can power your entire business.

  • Industrial Fridge/Freezer
    • If you’re a restaurant or convenience store, your food is everything. If it doesn’t stay cool, you don’t either. Our philosophy: fresh is always best.
  • Security Systems
    • Your security system protects your business. We protect your security system. That’s what we like to call good-old fashioned peace of mind.
  • Computers
    • Revenue records, inventory numbers, employee information — all your important files live here. We safeguard them from erratic power and keep you connected to the world.
  • Gas Pump
    • Guess what? When the power goes out everywhere else, you’ll be the only convenience store pumping gas. Your customers are going to like that. A lot.
  • Heat/AC
    • Whether it’s the dead of winter or dog days of summer, your HVAC is what keeps your employees and customers comfy and your building protected. And a happy customer is a loyal customer.

When it comes to backup power, you have two choices. Here’s the scoop:

  • Towable
    • Designed for powering remote locations, sporting events and concerts
    • Manual power transfer once generator is on site (building requires pre-wired generator connection panel)
    • Can power critical hard-wired systems like A/C, heat, computers, security systems, refrigerators and freezers with generator connection panel
    • Runs on diesel fuel
  • Commercial
    • Ideal for backing up your business
    • Automatically restores power in seconds – whether you’re open or closed
    • Powers your business, including critical hard-wired systems like A/C, heat, computers, security systems, refrigerators, freezers, and more
    • No refueling – runs on your small business’s natural or LP gas
