About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of portable generators. Portable generators supply electricity temporarily at jobsites, campsites or homes. These devices usually run off of gasoline; however, natural gas, propane and diesel versions are also available. Portable generators may be conventional models, or they may be inverter generators, which were introduced in the early 2000s and are smaller, lighter, quieter and more fuel efficient than conventional models, but are also more expensive to purchase. While portable generators can be purchased directly through a small number of manufacturers, the majority of buyers make their purchases through wholesalers and retailers.
