Portable vs. Standby Generators
The two main types of generators are portable and standby generators. Both keep your home or business powered in the event of an outage, but in different ways.
Below are the key differences between the two types of generators:
- Standby generators: Home standby generators are permanently installed in a home and offer seamless access to power. When power loss is detected, a standby generator will automatically kick on and start powering your appliances. This type of generator can often power more appliances than a portable generator.
- Portable generators: Portable generators are not installed directly to the home. Rather, they are often kept in storage and brought out during outages. They need to be manually started and refueled. This type of generator only powers select appliances that can be plugged into an extension cord that is plugged into the generator.

When selecting a generator, it is important to keep in mind that each one has specific power limits and run times. To get started, you need to determine how much generator power you need by calculating the total wattage needed.
Below is a step-by-step explanation of how to calculate the total wattage needed:
- Make a list of all of the appliances you would like to power in the event of an outage. Look at the owner’s manual for each appliance and record the Running Wattage (how many watts are needed to run the appliance) and the Starting Wattage for each one.
- Identify which appliance has the highest starting watts and make note of that number.
- Add up all of the running watts on your list of appliances to determine the total running watts.
- Add the total running watts to the highest starting watts to determine the total starting watts.
