In South Africa, it is never certain when there will be a power out. So it’s better to be safe than sorry. We at BHC electrical deliver and install generators to your home, Busines or industrial complex.
The two main types of generator are standby generator and portable generators. Standby generators are big, fixed into position and take over supplying your home with power when Eskom goes down. They’re expensive to install, but the idea is that you carry on as normal and don’t notice load-shedding at all.
More practical for most of us is the portable generator. These range from cheap and nasty to pricey and digitally controlled, but all boil down to basically being a petrol or diesel engine with a plug socket on the front. They’re a bit more limited in that you can only run one multiplug adaptor from one, and they can be noisy too.
