Can this be used on a daily basis at the minimum wattage (3000Kw)?
Asked by: victor
Generac's Protector Series automatic standby generators are designed to provide a backup power source in the event of a power outage. They are not intended for use as a primary power source; using these units in such a manner will void the product's warranty.

What are the RPM's on this generator? Also, do you know if this will work for off grid systems where it can recharge batteries once the voltage drops?

Asked by: EricJ
Hello EricJ, I’m Chris from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question. This unit is not intended to be an off-grid generator. The transfer switch system is designed to monitor and respond to line voltage on vs. a power outage. Generac does have one model available specifically designed for off grid usage. It runs quietly at a reduced rpm via a belt and pulley system, and has a transfer switch designed to monitor low battery voltage. You can find it here: I hope this helps, Chris. .
