As we mentioned, there are many generator styles you can choose from. Most commonly you’ll have to choose between a portable generator and a stationary backup generator. Portable generators are made for power on the go, whereas stationary generators will be backup power during outages. The primary reason you’re interested in having a generator will help you determine which style is best for you.


Once you establish which type of generator you need, you can begin thinking about how much power you’ll need to run the appliances, equipment, and devices you need to use. Portable generators and stationary ones are available in several different power levels, so it’s important to know how much you need to accomplish your goals!

Fuel Type

Another decision you’ll need to make is how the generator itself is powered. The most common options are gasoline, diesel, and propane-powered generators. There are pros and cons to each option, like runtime or cost, but the main factor you might want to consider to make this decision is your accessibility to each type of fuel.
