Standby Generators from Robies

Robies can install a standby generator to give you peace of mind during bad weather.

Will you be ready for our next nor'easter?

Don't live at the mercy of our Cape Cod weather. The Generac Automatic Home Standby Generator can restore power to your home to live a normal life.

Recent technology advances make these systems much more affordable than once was typical for home generators. They can run on natural or LP gas, and feature automatic startup and shutdown.

You get to choose how much of your home you wish to be able to "bring back online" after a power outage. Perhaps you wish for simply the “essentials” — heat, refrigerator, some lights and outlets — to be activated in case of a blackout. Or maybe you would like to get back to “full living” immediately. Either way, we can help you make a smart decision about which generator makes the most sense for you and your family.

Robies can install a standby generator in most homes, to give you peace of mind during all the storms that are sure to visit us in the years ahead!

A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items. Today’s Generac models feature electronic diagnostics for reliable operation.

Here's how it works:

Utility power is lost. Generac installed by Robies


Whether from a storm, a fallen utility pole, or simply one of the “Cape Cod Blackouts,” the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone.

The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns. When that happens, the generator ceases operation—automatically.

The number of lights and appliances determines the size of generator that would be right for your home. Use the chart below as a guide:

  7kW 8kW 10kW 14kW 17kW 20kW +
Circuits 8 10 12 14 16 200 Amp
2-ton 2-ton 3-ton ≤ 4-ton* ≤ 5 ton* ≤ 5 ton*
Sump Pump
# Bathrooms backed up 1 1 2 2 3 3+
# Bedrooms backed up 1 2 3 4 5 5+
Living Areas
