The Generac Synergy home standby generator is the first residential standby generator with variable speed technology to allow the generator’s output to match the electrical demand.

The Generac Synergy generator consumes less fuel when running at a lower output, which translates to lower operation costs compared to traditional generators.

And, thanks to a specially designed internal resonator, Synergy has the quietest sound output at normal operation of any Generac home standby generator.

The Generac Evolution controller on the Synergy generator has a multilingual LCD display with intuitive controls, and a cellular remote monitoring device that lets you check the status of your generator at any time and receive real time notifications about its operation.

Danny Lipford: My friends at Generac are always looking for ways to improve their products. Their Synergy home standby generator—the first residential standby generator with variable speed technology—is a great example.

Most generators have to run at the same speed all the time to produce electricity. It doesn’t matter if your home is using a little electricity or a lot. Generac’s patented G-Flex technology solves this problem. G-Flex lets the Synergy model run based on the electrical needs of the home. In other words, the generator’s output matches the home’s demand.

The brains behind Generac’s G-Flex Technology is an automatic voltage regulator that monitors electrical demand and reduces engine speed accordingly. It also keeps tabs on alternator output and makes adjustments to produce exceptionally clean power. And Synergy’s special alternator features three motor windings—most generators just have two—which ensures consistent output, even at lower speeds.

That kind of innovation saves you money. Synergy consumes less fuel when running at a lower output, which translates to lower operation costs compared to traditional generators. Synergy also produces fewer emissions, leading to a cleaner carbon footprint than competitive generators.

And this thing is quiet. Thanks to a specially designed internal resonator, Synergy has the quietest sound output at normal operation of any Generac home standby generator.

When it’s running, Synergy is about as quiet as riding in a luxury car. This makes it ideal for neighborhoods with tight lot lines or sound ordinances.

Homeowners with sensitive electronics will appreciate the fact that Synergy produces power with less than two-percent total harmonic distortion. That’s the cleanest power of any residential standby generator.

The Evolution controller features a multilingual LCD display that puts intuitive controls right at your fingertips. And Synergy comes standard with Mobile Link, a cellular remote monitoring device that lets customers check the status of their generator at any time and receive real time notifications about its operation. That’s a $300 value.

Quieter, more fuel-efficient, cleaner—Generac’s Synergy generator proves that innovation leads to better products.
