State Farm® and Generac Announce Exclusive Offer for Home Backup Generators

Have the Power and Technology to Weather Any Power Outage

On July 25, Generac began extending an exclusive, limited-time offer that will help State Farm customers prepare for utility power interruption. The offer is for a $100 manufacturer’s rebate and free manufacturer’s five-year extended-limited warranty (total value of $595) on a Generac home backup generator.

Whether it is the result of hot or freezing temperatures, high winds, or severe storms, being without power can be devastating. State Farm, the leading home insurer in the country and Generac Power Systems, the leading manufacturer of backup power products, have teamed to help home and business owners be better prepared for severe weather.[1]

Power outages can happen at any time, rendering many modern electricity-dependent devices useless. Without power, you may be unable to run electrical appliances—including your refrigerator, furnace, water heater, central air unit, well pump, and sump pump, let alone charge your cell phone, connect to the Internet, or use your security system. Utility power outages can’t be avoided, but the costs associated with them can be lessened by installing a home backup generator at a home or business.

“The relationship between State Farm and Generac is a terrific example of how we’re helping make life go right for our customers,” says Duane Farrington, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at State Farm. “Technology has driven significant changes in customers' expectations and preferences. As a homeowner, I installed a Generac home backup generator so my family can feel safer and more comfortable when the power is out.”

“Our relationship with State Farm stems from a mutual corporate commitment to help homeowners manage risk when disaster strikes,” explains Clement Feng, Senior Vice President at Generac Power Systems. “Amidst the uncertainty of when the next outage will occur, an investment in continuous power is the best bet to keep your home and family safe during and after a storm.”

An important consideration for any preparedness plan for home and businesses, a standby generator can greatly reduce disruption when utility power is interrupted. The generator is permanently installed, sitting outside the home like a central air conditioning unit, and runs on natural gas or liquid propane to automatically deliver power to the home’s electrical system. A standby generator provides added protection by ensuring your home is never without power, resulting in continued operation of sump pumps, security systems, heating and cooling controls, and other important appliances.

To add to homeowner’s and business owner’s peace-of-mind, Generac offers smart home technology in the form of remote monitoring. Mobile Link™ allows residents to view the generator’s status on a computer or mobile device, review maintenance history, and take comfort knowing the generator is ready to turn on whenever the next utility power outage occurs.
