How Residential Generators Work
Simple but Reliable

Kohler residential generators and automatic transfer switches monitor the incoming utility power constantly. In the event of a power outage, the ATS (automatic transfer switch) immediately signals the generator and it is supplying power to your home within approximately 10 seconds. Once the regular power is restored, the ATS signals the generator to transfer the home back to utility power, cool down and shut off.
