Kohler ®Generators is introducing a new 30 kW standby generator, designed for large homes and small businesses. The KOHLER 30RCL, which will quickly restore power following an outage, features a robust 1,800-rpm liquid-cooled KOHLER® engine and patented noise-reduction technology that keeps sound levels to a minimum.

“As people continue to build larger homes, we’ve seen an increased demand for a residential generator of this size,” said Melanie Tydrich, senior channel manager for Kohler Generators. “The 30RCL really represents a sweet spot within our existing lineup of automatic backup generators. It’s an ideal size for today’s larger homes and we anticipate homeowners responding strongly to the combination of power and quiet operation that this new model offers.”

Designed for whole-house power, the 30RCL will keep major systems and appliances – including HVAC, lights, refrigerators, sump pumps and security systems – running in the event of a power outage.* It can also protect sensitive electronics, including smartphones, computers and entertainment systems, due to its outstanding voltage and frequency regulation as well as ultra-low levels of harmonic distortion.

As an added benefit, the 30RCL runs at only 62 decibels during normal operation and 54 decibels during weekly exercise, which is no louder than a typical conversation. While ideal for larger homes, the 30RCL generator can also be specified for light commercial applications, including offices and other small businesses.

Similar to all KOHLER standby generators, the new 30RCL automatically turns on within seconds of a power outage. It runs on self-feeding fuels such as liquid propane (LP) or natural gas, eliminating the need to ever manually refuel the unit. Other features include:

*Based on load size

  • 1,800 rpm, 2.2L turbo-4 cylinder engine
  • 60 Hz single-phase and 60 Hz three-phrase (208, 240 and 480V), running on natural gas or LP
  • Corrosion-resistant, neutral-colored aluminum enclosure
  • KOHLER brushless, rotating field alternator with broad range reconnectability
  • RDC2 controller
  • Compatible with LCM, RXT, RDT RSB, ATS’s and OnCue Plus®Generator Management System (GM81385-KP2-QS) and Programmable Interface Module (PIM)
  • UL/CSA certifications
  • Five-year, 2,000 hour warranty

The 30RCL joins the existing 24, 38, 48 and 60 kW models within Kohler’s popular family of residential/light commercial generators. The entire product offering from Kohler Generators now extends from 8 kW all the way to 150 kW to cover essentially all backup power needs.
