Kohler offers homeowners premium backup for both standby and off-grid applications in the form of their newly updated 14RESA home generator. Enclosed in a corrosion-proof polymer shell suitable for even the harshest environments, the 14RESA uses Kohler’s CH740 engine to produce 14kW of clean, stable power (12kW using natural gas). 32kVA of additional surge capacity is available as needed.
The 14RESA is likely sufficient for backup of critical loads in most homes, but to cover larger power needs, two 14RESA units can be put in parallel using Kohler’s PowerSync® Automatic Parallel Module (sold separately) to produce up to 28kW of power. Installed outside on a concrete or gravel pad, the 14RESA operates at a neighborhood-friendly sound level not exceeding 67 dB(A) and meets EPA emission regulation standards for both propane and natural gas applications.
Kohler’s sophisticated and user-friendly RDC2 Controller is included with all 14RESA units, allowing users to easily program and control their generator. The RDC2 Controller also includes the option to pre-program repeating maintenance exercises on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule, which supports longer equipment lifespan. Kohler’s sophisticated OnCue Plus Generator Management System, which allows homeowners to remotely monitor and control their 14RESA generator via web browser and/or smartphone app, is sold separately, as is the recommended CH740 Maintenance Kit.
