Kohler offers homeowners premium backup for both standby and off-grid applications in the form of their newly updated 14RCA home generator. Enclosed in a corrosion-proof aluminum shell suitable for even the harshest environments, the 14RCA uses Kohlers CH740 engine to produce 14kW of clean, stable power (12kW using natural gas). 33kVA of additional surge capacity is available as needed.
The 14RCA is likely sufficient for backup of critical loads in most homes, but to cover larger power needs, two 14RCA units can be put in parallel using Kohlers PowerSync Automatic Parallel Module (sold separately) to produce up to 28kW of power. Installed outside on a concrete or gravel pad, the 14RCA 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.
Kohlers sophisticated and user-friendly RDC2 Controller is included with all 14RCA 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. Kohlers 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.
