What is the difference between a backup and a standby generator?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A standby generator is designed to automatically provide electricity during a power outage. It is permanently installed at the home or place of business. The system – in standby mode – constantly monitors utility power 24/7/365. The automatic transfer switch (ATS) will detect a power failure and will send a signal that automatically disconnects from utility feed wires, connects generator feed wires, and starts the generator engine. The home or business will receive power from the generator smoothly and with minimal interruption similar to operating from utility power. When utility power is restored, the ATS will switch back to utility feed wires and return itself to standby mode.

A backup generator, also known as portable generator, does not offer automatic outage detection. When utility power fails, the business owner or homeowner must start the generator‘s engine manually. Power is then available to selected appliances by setting up extension cords directly from the backup generator to the needed appliance.
