General Electric GE 12KW Standby Generator

The GE 12kw home standby generator is now 50% quieter* and 50% smaller compared to our old 12kW¹. Best suited for small to medium-sized homes, the new and affordable generator from GE is combined with the Symphony® II Power Management System. Central air conditioners, electric clothes dryers, electric stovetops, ovens, or whirlpool tubs, often require a large amount of power to start up and operate properly. And since not all electronics use power the same way, The Symphony® II is able to efficiently send power to the entire home, keeping the unique need of each electronic in mind.

Symphony® II Power Management

The patented Symphony® II power controls offer a whole house solution for virtually every size home. Most high wattage appliances require a large and expensive generator to meet the demands of a larger home. With Symphony® II Power Management, you can manage the power demands of even the most power hungry appliances.

Now 50% Quieter

Powered by our high quality Vanguard™ engine, improved muffler design and re-engineered alternator intake ducting, the new 12kW is 50% quieter than our previous 13kW.

We Recommend Based on Reliability

Dunn Electrical Service chooses to work with only two generator manufacturers for a reason. When it matters most you can rely on Briggs & Stratton and General Electric brand generators to deliver power when your service area experiences a power outage. You can shop based on price however, we recommend based on experience.

Dunn Electrical Service stands behind these recommendations based on hands-on experience being on-site with customers when an (alternate brand) generator fails to deliver power in an emergency. Your safety and the convenience of having continuous power is a matter of reliability and confidence rather than which generator is the lowest price. Lower priced products can often set you up to fail when it matters most. Call or contact us to today to discuss your needs, so we can make a solid recommendation to meet or exceed your emergency power needs.
