Here’s a possible scenario: you may decide to cook something in the oven, the A/C is keeping the home cool, and you decide to take a quick shower, forcing the water heater to bring the cold water up to a nice temperature. Suddenly, your generator is no longer doing its job because its capacity was overloaded.
Every appliance or item that relies on power uses what’s called a load. Because there were too many loads happening, there was insufficient power. This situation could be avoided by either investing in a generator with greater wattage or one with load shedding technology.
With load shedding, a standby generator can turn off or “shed” loads with lower priority to keep those with higher priority running smoothly. Because the generator doesn’t have the power to keeping everything running simultaneously, it will juggle loads to prevent an overdrawing situation. Should more power become available, the generator may turn certain shed loads back on, a process known as load management.
A generator with load shedding provides numerous benefits. For one, all essential systems will run at all times. Furthermore, there is no risk of overdrawing and it is possible to use a lower watt generator, potentially saving money.
