our Diesel generators


Diesel generators do not rely on a established infrastructure of underground pipes to furnish gaseous fuel (Natural Gas or Propane), the fuel supply is contained within the unit and tipically can run the generator for 8hr at full load. The fuel is usually available and easily ferried to the location where it can be delivered to the unit tank, or an auxiliary tank to increase the run time to days, weeks, or months.

The charts below summarize the comparisons between gaseous fuels and diesel.
