The 20kW unit can cover a wide range of household appliances and items, however the exact items it can cover will vary for each application. The 20kW automatic standby generator is rated for a continuous output of 20,000 watts when utilizing propane, with a rated amperage of 83.3 amps at 240 volts. When utilizing natural gas, the unit is rated for a continuous output of 18,000 watts, with a rated amperage of 75 amps at 240 volts. You will want to ensure that all of the items you intend to run will not exceed this rating.
Our automatic standby generators and transfer switches can be set up into multiple configurations, including configurations where multiple transfer switches can be utilized, provided the installation meets all local, state, and national codes. Keep in mind that if you would like to use a load center option with a 20kW, you may want to utilize a sub-panel that contains all of the circuits deemed necessary for use in an outage situation, and protect the sub-panel with a single transfer switch, as our EZ Switches that include a load center option are not designed for use with a 20kW unit. We recommend speaking with your local certified dealer to determine the best generator and transfer switch set up for your application.
