To determine the right generator size, follow these steps:

  1. Make a list of all the equipment and machinery that will be powered by the generator during an outage.
  2. Calculate the total running wattage required by adding up the wattage requirements of each item.
  3. Identify the item with the highest starting wattage, and add it to the total running wattage.
  4. Apply a safety factor by multiplying the total wattage by 1.25 to account for future expansion and peak demand.
