Generac's Nexus Controller is the most comprehensive available. The dual line, tri-lingual LCD display allows for easy monitoring and management of generator functions.

Simple field conversion from natural gas to LP.

Generac’s OHVI engine   was designed specifically for generators. It out peforms most competitive generator engines with an engine life that is three to four times longer and has a significantly longer period between scheduled maintenance checkups.

TruePower Technology provides clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances.

Sturdy, galvanneal steel enclosure with RhinoCoat™ finish for superior weather protection, modeled to withstand 150 mph winds.

External “At-a-Glance” indicator lights offer an easy way to tell generator status without opening the generator enclosure.

Added Sound Reduction with enclosures that are lined with sound reducing foam panels for further noise reduction. 

Hour Meter monitors run time, providing information to determine maintenance intervals.

Easiest installation on the market and an excellent value when purchased pre-packaged with a pre-wired transfer switch, or customize your system by purchasing the generator and transfer switch separately. Composite mounting pad is included, eliminating the need to pour a concrete base.

Great JOB!! October 10, 2012
Reviewer: Michael Mohon from Elgin, OK United States  
Thanks to everyone with AP Electric, from the first phone call to ensure my credit card was being use by me to the delievery of the unit. We are ready for winter or what ever Mother Nature has in store for us the 17kW Generac will be ready to keep my family either warm or cool by a flip of the transfer switch and we are good to go.
Again thanks for all your help,
Jenny and Michael Mohon

17 KW generator February 13, 2012
Reviewer: Henry L. Blanchard from Great Barrington, MA United States  
I always install 14KW units, but for a little more money it is worth putting in the 17 Kw

Generac Generator December 4, 2011
Reviewer: Karla Dobbeck from Algonquin, IL United States  
Our new generator has only been in for a couple of weeks and last night, the power went out.  The outage only lasted a short time but we hardly missed a beat.  Our Generac started within seconds of the power failure, as promised.  We couldn't be happier!  

We are also happy our unit checks itself each week.

Apelectric.com really got my generator out quickly. I placed my order first thing in the morning, and it shipped that afternoon. It was simple to choose the right maintenance kit and battery. The options just popped up at check out. I have already recommended their website to the electrician who installed my generator.
