Bi Fuel generator sets
Bi-Fuel generators combine the power of diesel fuel with the longevity of natural gas. They meet the NEC and NFPA code requirements for on-site fuel storage while providing the reliability of natural gas flow during a crisis or extreme weather event. Should natural gas not be available, bi-fuel generators can run on diesel fuel alone. By offering fully integrated solutions that are the only EPA-compliant bi-fuel generators available straight from the factory, Generac is able to provide dependable solutions with flexible fueling options to meet the needs of various backup power applications.
Generac Bi-Fuel Generators
Generac Bi-Fuel™ generators start on diesel fuel and add natural gas as load is applied, until the unit runs primarily on natural gas. Generac’s Bi-Fuel generators are fully integrated solutions, not after-market conversions in the field. That means every component is specifically designed, engineered, and factory validated to work together. Generac Bi-Fuel generators have the added benefit of being EPA compliant from the factory—the only bi-fuel systems on the market that can make such a claim.
Risk Mitigation via Fuel Redundancy
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Because natural gas costs less than diesel, fuel costs are significantly reduced over the long term. And since less on-site diesel fuel is required for long running times, installation, operational and maintenance costs are reduced.
Generac Bi-Fuel generators meet the on-site fuel requirements for emergency systems as referenced in NEC700 and NFPA 110. Less on-site diesel fuel means easier permitting. And indoor fuel installations with capacity limits per NFPA or local codes become a viable option.
Reduced Exhaust Emissions
Bi-fuel generators are cleaner and more environmentally friendly than diesel-only generators. They emit about 30% less nitrogen oxides and 50% less particulate matter than comparable diesel-only units.
