The benefits of a whole-home generator

Southern California citizens are some of the most vulnerable in the U.S. when it comes to mass power blackouts. That's why more and more homeowners are opting to install whole-home generators.

Some of the benefits of a whole-home generator include:

  • They're designed for automatic operation. When the power goes out, a whole-home generator automatically kicks in with little to no loss of energy—whether you're home or not. And they’ll continue to provide a reliable energy source until the power is restored to your home.
  • They save you money. When the power goes out, it means that critical appliances such as your refrigerator or HVAC systems can no longer operate. And when the power is out for multiple days, it means you'll likely need to throw out hundreds of dollars worth of food, medications, and other important items. Plus, no heat in the winter or no cool air in the summer can cause other expensive mishaps such as frozen/burst pipes, damaged appliances, etc. A whole-home generator prevents all of this by providing uninterrupted power throughout the duration of a blackout.
  • They add value to your home. A whole-home generator can boost the value of your existing home, which typically means a healthy return on investment on the system if/when you sell your home.

How much does a whole-home generator cost in Redlands?

Wondering how much it costs to install a whole-home generator in Redlands and the Inland Empire area? Prices in our area typically range anywhere from $8,000 to $24,000, with an average cost of $16,000.

Factors that will affect the cost of your whole-home generator installation include:

  1. The number of appliances you need powered during a blackout. The more appliances you want powered, the more powerful your generator will need to be—especially if those appliances require large amounts of energy to run. Generator power is measured in kilowatts (kW), a measurement of electrical power. The higher the kilowatts a whole-home generator provides, the more it will cost. A licensed electrician can help you determine which appliances you need powered and can help you determine what size generator your home requires.
  2. Type of fuel. Whole-home generators need a fuel source in order to generate and provide electrical energy. Typically, gas-powered whole-home generators cost less than generators that run off of diesel fuel or propane. That's because a gas-powered generator only needs a hookup to the home's existing gas line while generators that run off of diesel or propane will require the installation of a storage fuel tank.
  3. Whether permits are required. Some California localities require homeowners to apply for permits if their whole-home generator exceeds a certain size (due to noise and air quality concerns). If permits are required, this will raise the cost of the overall installation.
  4. Features. Not all whole-home generators are built equally. Some have more advanced comfort features, like sound-muffling devices. Simply put, the more advanced features, the higher the cost of the generator.

Of course, the only way to get accurate pricing for your specific installation is to have us inspect your home and talk with you about your backup energy needs.

Education: Generator terms to know

If you're in the market for a whole-home generator, heads up...you'll see a lot of unfamiliar terms as you shop around. We're here to help you make sense of some of the generator jargon.

Below are some whole-home generator terms and phrases you should know:

  • Standby vs portable generators. A portable generator can be moved around. These models are typically on wheels and require a manual start. They're generally less expensive than standby generators but they're also less powerful. Standby generators (i.e. whole-home generators) are permanent fixtures installed on a concrete pad outside your house. They automatically provide power to essential appliances in your home and are much more powerful than portable models.
  • kW rating. Generators are rated in Watts or Kilowatts (kW) to express how much work they can do (one kilowatt = 1000 watts). A generator's kW rating measures the maximum power output it can supply in an outage. The higher the kW rating, the more power a generator can provide (and the more expensive it will be). The kW rating should exceed the amount of power you need to keep your essential appliances powered during an outage.
  • Automatic transfer switch. A transfer switch automatically changes the home's electrical load from the power grid over to the generator when there is a power outage. Transfer switches can also be designed to control other actions such as setting timers, etc.


I just wanted to provide some feedback on a job that your company recently completed at my house in Lake Arrowhead. I want to preface this by saying that I am a very picky astronautical engineer. The job started with a quote from Steven Smith to install a 22kw generator system and replace my service panel with a new 200A panel and sub-panel. I cannot say enough great things about the professionalism and quality your team executed. I was VERY impressed! I saw critical thinking when issues came up, attention to detail at every step, adherence to quality, and considerate training of the newer member of the team. This is not the norm of contractors in my experience. You guys have a culture of greatness going on that is impressive. Thank you sir!
