GENERATOR BACKORDER ALERT
Due to COVID-19 and the increased demand for standby generators, Generac Power Systems is continuing to experience production delays. We are currently estimating it to take 6-to-7 months to complete the permitting, installation, inspection & provisioning of your new generator.
We want to thank all of our clients in advance for their patience as we continue to work though these challenging times.
Generac's promised ship dates have continued to slip
As of April 29, 2021, Generac's lead times have gotten even worse! They are currently running between 18 and 44 weeks (depending on the model ordered).
Generac CEO says demand for power generators is high: ‘We can’t make them fast enough’
"Given the company’s backlog, local permitting processes and the contractors involved, it can take 20 weeks for residents to get a generator installed in their home, he said. Generac has about 7,000 dealers in its network, but the company needs more, he said. Services that handle inspections, gas meter upgrades and other parts of the installation process are also reportedly dealing with long queues." “There’s just a backlog of everything,” he added.
“I know there’s a lot of people suffering down there right now,” Jagdfeld said. “We’re doing our best to get as much product as we can into that market.”
