You’ve decided that you’re ready to invest in a standby generator, or a permanent unit capable of powering your essentials during an outage.
If you’re in the market for a generator, you’ve come to the right place. You probably have a full list of questions, including, “What size generator do I need? Which fuel type is better: natural gas vs. liquid propane? What brand should I trust?”
As a Florida resident, you know heavy winds and rains knock over trees and power lines all the time— and you admit you could really benefit from a backup generator.
In the wake of Hurricane Irma last year, millions of Floridians were left without power. For thousands, the power outages lasted for more than a week. Thousands of residents of Puerto Rico still had no electricity when Christmas arrived, more than three months after Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on the island.
While Southwest Florida is absolutely breathtaking year-round, severe weather can quickly become an issue during hurricane season, causing unwelcome power outages and making generators a necessity for any home.This is why it’s important to choose the right generator—without one, you may be left in the dark.
Whether you use your portable generator at home, the office, or for camping, the last thing you want is for it to fail when you need it the most. Especially in cases of severe weather when it’s important that your generator does its job flawlessly.
Hurricane season is upon us, so you are probably thinking about assembling your hurricane kit, checking batteries in the flashlights, stashing them anywhere you can think of – you know, just in case the area finds itself on a first name basis with a tropical storm and your power goes out.
Don’t be left in the dark this hurricane season! Southwest Florida Electric offers a wide variety of generators, so you won’t find yourself fumbling through the dark for a flashlight. What’s the right solution for you and your budget? Read on as we discuss just a few of the types of generators we carry to help you decide which is best for your needs.
As a southwest Florida homeowner, if you don’t already have a backup generator, you’re most likely in the market for one.

The power’s out. Again. You and your family are sitting in darkness, unable to charge your electronics, run your air conditioner (a must in southwest Florida in the summer!), use your stove, and, oh yes— your refrigerator full of food is about to spoil. You’ve had enough! It’s time to invest in a backup generator!
