Kohler 30RCL generator for “whole-house power”
By Renée Francoeur
August 8, 2016 – Kohler Generators is introducing a 30kW standby generator, designed for large homes and small businesses. The Kohler 30RCL features a 1800-rpm liquid-cooled Kohler engine and patented noise-reduction technology.
Designed for whole-house power, the company says the 30RCL will keep major systems and appliances—including HVAC, lights, refrigerators, sump pumps and security systems—running in the event of a power outage. It can also protect sensitive electronics, including smartphones, computers and entertainment systems, Kohler says, due to its voltage and frequency regulation as well as ultra-low levels of harmonic distortion.
The 30RCL runs at only 62 decibels during normal operation and 54 decibels during weekly exercise, which is no louder than a typical conversation, according to the company.
