  • Automatic Standby Generator?
    This is a permanently installed generator mounted to a concrete pad and hardwired into your electrical system fed by a hard piped gas line.
  • Automatic Transfer Switch?
    This is the part that controls what is powering your home, utility or the generator. Normally installed inside next to your main panel, or close to the generator.
  • Load Shedding?
    Load shedding is a method of maximizing the loads backed up by generators undersized to the system by giving the generator the ability to drop certain larger loads in the event that they are overloaded. For example if we had a house with a peak demand of 20KW, we might be able to utilize a smaller 14KW or 18KW by utilizing load shedding on the heat pump and hot water tank. This helps keeps fuel consumption and costs down without compromising functionality!
  • What types of fuel can you use?
    Typically home standby generators are propane or natural gas, but diesel options are also available.
  • What can an automatic standby generator power?
    Smaller installations may be for only the bare essentials (fridge, freezer, water pump, etc.) larger installations may be the entirety of your home including heat, hot water, cooking appliances etc.
  • How long will an automatic standby generator last?
    On average, with the appropriate servicing and maintenance, these generators can last up to 3,000 hours of use but we have also seen much more!
  • How long will an automatic standby generator run during a power outage?
    This depends on your fuel source. Run on natural gas it will run indefinitely. Run on propane it really depends on your loads and the propane tank size. The most common tank is an 80G and most generators consume 2G/hr at 50% so roughly 40 hours. That being said your can always parallel these tanks for a longer runtime.
  • Where can I put the generator?
    Automatic standby generators require 5’ separation from all windows, doors, vents of any kind as well as 10’ from fuel sources and heat pumps. Otherwise they need 18” separation behind from any combustible surfaces and 3’ on either end for intake and exhaust.
  • How do I know what size generator I need?
    This is a free service we offer, but essentially to calculate the generators size we need to identify all the loads the generator will be backing up. Once we have this list we can determine each items power demand in watts and calculate our minimum generator size (eg. well pump 1800 watts, fridge 1000W, freezer 800W, therefore we would require 3600W or a 3.6KW generator minimum)
  • How loud are they?
    61-67dB – I know, “what does that mean?” Well to put it in perspective, 60-70dB is normal conversation. A vacuum cleaner is 70-75dB. The noise inside a car at 100 km/hr is 70dB.
  • Sounds great, but how much does it cost?!"
    Supply and installation can be anywhere from $7500 - $22,000 depending on model, design, existing site conditions, fuel source, and electrical systems. If this is outside of your budget, you may try a more cost effective portable generator with a manual transfer switch.
It was an absolute pleasure to have Osprey working on our generator project. They were super easy to work with, personable, knowledgeable, and portrayed Osprey in a very positive and professional way.
