1. Be sure the generator you select is large enough to handle your present requirements.

2. To determine the right size generator, add the total watts of all lights, appliances, tools or other equipment to be connected to the generator.

3. Check the nameplates to determine wattage. If the wattage is not shown, but amps and volts are given, the following simplified formula may be used.

Amps x Volts = Watts

(Ex. 12.5 Amps x 120 Volts = 1500 Watts)

To determine kilowatts (kW), use the following formula:

Watts = Kilowatts
1000

(Ex. 1500 = 1.5 kW)
-----1000
