KOHLER® Automatic Backup Generator Systems

There are countless benefits of choosing a KOHLER® residential automatic backup generator system. One major benefit is that they constantly monitor and assess your home’s utility power, which allows them to automatically turn on and supply your home with electrical power should an unexpected power interruption occur, regardless of whether or not you’re home.

Gowen Power Systems’ installation experts will install these emergency power systems – which are similar in size to a central AC unit – in a permanent location outside of your existing home or as part of new construction project. Homeowners can choose to power these residential generator systems by either natural gas or propane.

A KOHLER® Generator System Consists of These Primary Components:

1. KOHLER® Generator

– Permanently installed outside your home, the emergency generator is fueled by natural gas or propane so no re-fueling is necessary.

2. Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) – The ATS is the component responsible for continuously monitoring your home’s utility power output. If the power goes out, the ATS will automatically begin transferring power from the utility source to the KOHLER® generator. Once the utility power has been fully restored, the ATS will turn off your emergency generator and transfer back to the utility grid’s power.

3. Battery and Battery Charger – Similar to an automobile engine, a KOHLER® generator system requires a starting battery. The automatic battery charger keeps the battery charged, ensuring that the generator system will start and function when needed.

What is a home generator?

A standby generator keeps your power on during an outage – regardless of whether or not you’re home. It is permanently installed outdoors, similar in size to a central AC unit and runs on propane or natural gas.



Every KOHLER® generator features a heavy-duty, commercial-grade engine that has been built with the finest and most durable materials available to ensure it can tackle even the most extreme workloads over the course of many, many years.


Not only are KOHLER® generators built to last, they’re extremely powerful. In as little as 10 seconds (or less), this generator can restore power to a 60,000 BTU air conditioner, major appliances and electronics.*
