A generator is an important investment in your home. It can help protect the health and safety of your family and provide power during storms, heat waves, and natural disasters. Choosing to install a whole-home generator is a decision that will bring you peace of mind for years to come.

Our expert electrical team has the skills necessary to provide exceptional service backed by the best equipment in the industry. Call us at 541-549-1605 to learn more about our home generator repair and installation services.

How Do Home Generators Work?

A whole-home generator is designed to be connected to the power supply in your home. When a power outage occurs, a transfer switch is automatically flipped, and your home begins taking power from the generator instead of the original power source.

Most whole-home generators are equipped to power your home for up to 3 weeks if necessary. Home generators (also known as standby generators) rely on natural gas, propane, or diesel to produce power.

Benefits of Whole-Home Generators

Generator systems provide your home with many advantages. Here are just a few of the benefits of owning a whole-home generator.

Provide power in the event of an outage

Ensure the safety and comfort of your family

Keep crucial appliances running, such as medical devices, heaters, refrigerators, security systems, and sump pumps

Protect computers and appliances from electrical surges

Give you peace of mind during storms, heat waves, and natural disasters

Types of Residential Generators


Portable generators have their uses, but they don’t provide nearly as much wattage as whole-home generators. In most cases, portable generators can be used for a few hours after your home loses power and can only power a few small appliances at a time. You’ll also need to have a few extension cords on hand to properly set up your portable generator.


Standby generators, otherwise known as whole-home generators, can provide power to most or all of your home. There are many standby unit sizes available, from

35kW whole-home generators that power only essential appliances to 20,000kW generators that power your entire home.

Choosing the right generator will depend on the size of your home as well as the kinds of appliances you have inside. Many people assume that a large generator is always the best option, but choosing a generator that’s too big for your home can actually be less efficient.

If you’re unsure what kind of generator you need, our electrical services team at Ponderosa would be happy to assist you. We can perform an inspection of your home to determine how many kilowatts will be necessary to keep your home safe and comfortable in case of an emergency.

Our Generator Brands

At Ponderosa, we carry only the most trusted, industry-leading brands. Some of the generator brands we offer include:

  • Generac

Installing a whole-home generator is a unique process that requires customized plans that are based on the needs of your home. Because of this, it’s normal for the entire process, from requesting a quote to the completion of the project, to take a few weeks.

That’s why we always recommend you turn to a professional electrician for generator installation.

Once we’ve ordered the necessary materials for the project, the actual installation will take about a day. In the days following the installation, the fuel line will be connected to the generator. Then, the generator will be inspected to ensure everything is working properly.
