It’s the smart way to direct backup power anywhere in your house, without the need for a large, expensive standby generator. When utility power returns, the Symphony® II power management transfer switch will shift your home back to utility power without you having to lift a finger. Because GE generators are smart, sophisticated, and largely automated, you are protected from the elements as your home standby system does the work. 

Standby generators use either natural gas or liquid propane vapor to operate. Your generator system will utilize the fuel type that is already available in your home.
