All of our generators have a base that supports the generator. When we install a generator system, we include site preparation as part of the installation. The purpose of our site preparation is to ensure a solid, level foundation for the generator and also raise the level of the generator above any surface rain water. For home generators up to 20kW, we use 4×6 Grade 1 treated timbers to frame a level box. The box is filled with a compacted mix of granite rock and pea gravel. The rock helps provide a quieter and cleaner installation. All liquid cooled generators require a concrete slab because of their weight.
