Portable Generator FAQ

How Much Does a Portable Generator Rental Cost?

Price for a portable generator rental will depend on the wattage required as well as rental duration, generator engine type, and other factors.

How Many Watts Do I Need?

A standard portable generator runs at 1,000 watts and is generally all you will need for most recreational activities and household electricity. If you are going to be running a lot of power tools you may want to increase your wattage to the vicinity of 8,000 instead.

What Is An Inverter Generator?

An portable inverter generator is a smaller and quieter than a traditional portable generator. Working off a process of converting the DC power it generates into AC power through the use of an inverter module. Typically portable generators put off direct AC power forcing them to run at higher RPM's. This is why they are much louder and less efficient than the portable inverter generator which only needs to run as fast as the load requirement it is sustaining.
