Frequently asked questions

  • What fuel do generators use?

Generators run on a variety of fuels, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. These fuels include diesel, gas, petrol, propane and hvo biofuel. While diesel and gas options are more common, hvo biofuel poses significant reductions in carbon emissions, allowing for more sustainable power and lower overall emissions. 

  • What size generator do I require?

That depends entirely on your needs. Different projects will have different power requirements, so it’s important to consider the level of power you’ll need in the planning stages. For example, a small building site will require approximately 3 – 4 kW of power to stay operational, whereas an office, manufacturing plant, or construction site will need upwards of 750 kW. If you’re looking for backup power to cover an emergency or planned outage, it’s wise to factor in more power than you need to protect against any further complications. 

  • What is the difference between kva and kW?

KVA (kilo-volt-amperes) is a measurement of apparent power. In layperson's terms, it’s a measurement of the total amount of power being used in a system. (A generator, for example.)kW (kilowatt) is the level of working power belonging to an electrical system, measured in increments of one thousand. While the two acronyms are often (wrongly) used interchangeably, kW measures the amount of s0-called ‘working power’, as in, the electricity that is being converted into working output, while kva refers to the amount of power being used in a system overall.
