Thought I would go to the experts. I need a "portable" generator for my house. Noise is not a great issue, but....reliability is. Have looked at 7000 to 10000 watts. A whole house, integrally wired automatic would be nice, but I am not looking to spend 8 to 12 grand.
I bought a Honeywell 12kw from Costco for $2,200. Although it is not portable it is a great addition to the house. I installed it myself and it runs on Natural Gas or Propane.. is has the tranferswitch with it.
