Natural Gas Emergency Generators:  A Safe and Reliable Alternative

Natural gas emergency generators are becoming increasingly popular, due in particular to their reliability and the fact that they require no fuel tanks, as they are directly connected to the natural gas distribution system.

 Did you know that you must meet regulatory requirements when installing one?

  1.  The independent outside supply line must be properly identified .
  2. The exterior location near the service line must be designed to make it easy to identify the valves used to shut down other equipment .
  3. The natural gas line supplying the generator must be rated for two hours of fire resistance .
  4. Valve-opening sensor switches that can shut off the natural gas supply to the generator must be provided and connected in a way that triggers an alarm .
