Deciding on the right size gas generator for your needs depends on the amount of power you will need and how long you'll be using it. A smaller-sized gas generator can operate a few select appliances in an emergency situation or when there is a brief outage; larger units are capable of powering entire homes during longer outages due to storms or natural disasters.

Yes, gas generators must be grounded. This can be done with a grounding rod that is inserted into the earth and attached to the generator or by using an appropriate adapter plug.
