Generac LP5500 Portable Generator Improves Air Quality, Increases Builder Profit Margins on the Jobsite

WASHINGTON (March 6, 2013) – Builders will be able to experience added benefits on the jobsite with the introduction of the propane-fueled Generac LP5500 portable generator next month.

Unlike gasoline, propane does not degrade over time, virtually eliminating performance problems related to fuel quality. Propane also emits fewer carbon dioxide emissions and toxic pollutants than gasoline, improving the air quality for the crew on the jobsite. Finally, in many cases, propane fuel costs less than gasoline, improving builder profit margins.

An additional advantage is that the propane-fueled 5.5 kW portable generator features an integrated tank and mounted wheels for easy portability. Many portable generators available on the market today have a propane tank that needs to be manually carried and placed next to the generator when it's in use. With the Generac LP5500 portable generator, the propane tank is integrated into the frame, which eliminates manual tank handling.

The Generac LP5500 portable generator will be brought to market in April with the support of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). PERC promotes the safe, efficient use of odorized propane gas as a preferred energy resource through research and development, training, and safety programs.

"PERC is thrilled to have worked with Generac to develop a propane-fueled generator that is ideal for jobsite use," said Bridget Scanlon, director of residential and commercial programs for PERC. "Utilizing the Generac LP5500 on the jobsite adds another dimension to the green building trend."

The Generac LP5500 portable generator will be on display in PERC's booth, 436, at JLC Live from March 22-23. The show is being held at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.
