Generac 5818 EcoGen Series Air-Cooled 6kW 120 Volt Single Phase LP Engine Residential Generator

Generac EcoGen 6kW Residential Generator

If you’re trying to live a green lifestyle, then you might be interested in Generac’s EcoGen 6kW residential generator. The EcoGen 6kW is the only automatic standby generator specifically engineered for off-grid use. In its design, Generac carefully considered every element, virtually eliminating issues previously associated with alternative backup power options.

The EcoGen does not suffer from high fuel consumption, short product life, or noisy operation. Instead, the EcoGen 6kW residential generator is newest option for homeowners who want off-grid standby power, reliability, affordability, and minimal emissions.

To do the job, Generac built the EcoGen 6kW specifically for off-grid use with alternative energy technology in mind. The generator runs on energy-efficient propane gas, is easy to integrate into an existing inverter and battery storage system, operates at a low speed for quiet operation, and is equipped with the V-Twin OHVI engine, a Generac creation intended specifically for generator use.

 The EcoGen 6kW residential generator requires maintenance every 500 hours, an unprecedented interval among modern generators, and uses a new oil recovery and circulation system that significantly reduces oil degradation. Meanwhile, the propane fuel reduces environmental impact, producing less carbon monoxide than other energy types.

On top of its excellent design and eco-friendly features, Generac provides the EcoGen 6kW residential generator with a three year or 2000 hour limited warranty. Chances are, homeowners won’t need the warranty since the generator is surrounded by a steel enclosure using a RhinoCoat finish. This protection guards against long-term corrosion and inclement weather damage.
All in all, there is no greener choice than the EcoGen 6kW residential generator.

Designed specifically to interact with off-grid renewable energy applications, the EcoGen 6 kW is the first generator intended for alternative energy system standby power. It's engineered to easily integrate into an inverter and battery storage system, providing the cleanest running, low emission solution for recharging battery banks.

Stand up to unpredictable weather and unforeseen outages with the most trusted name in residential standby power. If the power ever goes out, your Generac standby generator goes on - automatically - protecting you and your home 24/7.

Never feel powerless with the #1 selling home standby generator. Choose the generator four out of five families have already installed.

Features:

  • Extended run capability and long life are gained from Generac's exclusive premium oil recovery and circulation system that virtually halts oil degradation
  • Maintenance intervals are extended by an unprecedented five times the industry standard with 500 hours between oil changes
  • Full pressure lubrication system provides superior lubrication to all vital bearings means better performance, less maintenance and significantly longer engine life
  • Low oil pressure shutdown protection prevents catastrophic engine damage due to low oil
  • High temperature shutdown prevents damage due to overheating
  • Cleaning burning propane fuel increases efficiency contributes to longer engine life and produces significantly less carbon monoxide than gasoline fueled engines
  • Weather protective steel enclosure ensures protection against mother nature with a hinged key locking roof panel for security
  • Lift-out front for easy access to all routine maintenance items
  • UL 2200 listed for your safety
  • Nexus Digital Controller features an LCD display with status indicators, monitors generator performance, and also records any issues for easy troubleshooting
  • Integrated smart charging system only charges the battery when necessary
  • Three position switch allows for automatic, off and manual functions
  • Main line circuit breaker protects generator from overload
  • Factory wired for a full 6 kW at 120VAC with the capability to be reconfigured for a full 6 kW output at 240VAC to accommodate larger 240V inverter systems or two systems paired together
  • Factory equipped with two-wire start to easily connect to the inverter control wires, enables the inverter to automatically start and stop the generator in order to charge the system batteries as necessary
  • Ultra quiet, only 52 dB(A) under normal load
  • Vertically mounted, belt-driven engine drives at a low 2,600 RPMs resulting in a longer life and drastically quieter operation than other systems
  • Composite mounting pad included eliminating the need to pour a concrete base
  • 150 MPH wind resistant design
  • Large reverse-stamped louvers
  • Backed by an unprecedented 3 year/2,000 hour limited warranty when used off-grid in an alternative energy system
  • LP Gas Operation Only

In an off-grid solution, the generator is an important source of backup power when other resources are insufficient for the demand, improving overall system reliability.ecogen diagram

1. Sun (solar cells) and/or wind (turbines) generate DC current.

2. This is fed to the inverter charger and then on to the battery bank.

3. The inverter takes DC power from the battery bank, converts it to AC and then sends the current to the AC electrical panel.

4. If there is no solar or wind gain and the battery bank level drops below a preset threshold, the inverter automatically signals the 
generator to start up.

5. The generator feeds AC power to the inverter, which in turn sends power to the electric panel and recharges the battery bank to an acceptable level.

Setup options may vary depending on application.
