Portable generators, portable inverter generators, and portable power inverters covered by this policy
A portable generator is a fuel powered engine or motor that converts chemical energy directly to an AC electrical output. Portable generators are designed to be carried, pulled, or pushed by a person. Portable generators may also include portable inverter generators, which are more complex fuel-powered generators that include a built-in AC inverter. Portable power inverters convert a DC electrical signal, supplied by a solar panel or an internal battery, to an AC electrical output.
