The last couple years have seen an unprecedented delay in manufacturing for the production of appliances, cars, and standby generators. The major manufacturers of generators have been months out on orders, but not today. There has been significant progress just recently. Generac, the largest manufacturer of standby generators in North American, are able to manufacture and ship new residential generators this summer. Current estimated lead times for new orders as of July 5th, 2022 are only July and August to ship. O.J. Mann Generators of CT currently has limited stock availability on some residential models between 14-24 kWs.
If the current projections by NOAA for an above-normal hurricane seasons proves to be correct, and North America sees a potentially catastrophic event again, this lead time will change, as it did at the end of 2019, and 2012, and 2013. NOAA is predicting a likely range of 14-21 named storms with 70% confidence. If you have interest in getting a standby generator installed this summer or early fall, contact O.J. Mann Electric soon for a free no-obligation estimation.
