Generac Power Systems Launches New Portable Series
May, 2009 -- To respond to the growing demand for reliable, standby, portable power, the leader in standby power generation, Generac® Power Systems, Inc., Waukesha, Wis., has introduced the new XG Series of portable generators. Compact in design, this new Series is the perfect back-up power solution in the home or on the job-site.
"From home use to tailgating or camping, construction or outdoor events, our portable generators provide end users with dependable power when they need it," says Clement Feng, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Generac. "The professional-grade XG Series is engineered for high performance, long periods of operation and rough handling at job sites, around the home or at events. Their compact design and smaller footprint make them easier to transport and handle, an important issue for generator users. Well suited for applications where better performance is desired, the XG Series is a nice addition to Generac's full line of portable generators."
