Learning the Big Difference between Diesel and Natural Gas Generator

The prevalence of major storms resulting in extended power outages has increased in recent years, which has contributed to the rising purchase of standby generators. Standby generators are permanently installed on a concrete pad outdoors and are connected directly to your home’s electrical panel. They are powered by external fuel supplies including diesel, propane and natural gas. They are designed to provide home and business owners with necessary power supplies for several days without interruption.

Diesel vs Natural Gas Generators

Both a diesel generator and natural gas generator can provide adequate power to a home or business for several days and each has specific benefits and drawbacks.

First, natural gas is considered one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. Odor is no issue by using a natural gas generator, as no pungent odor is produced. Furthermore, using natural gas is effective in cost reduction, especially when used as a backup power source.
