Because the generator is completely portable, you have the option to use it for
recreational or work-related activities. Take it camping, tailgating, or even to
a second home! And if you decide to move, the generator comes with you.
The Universal Transfer Switch gives you additional versatility as well, with a vacation
mode to cycle lights.

generator. There's no need to pour a concrete slab or do additional site work, and
usually no permits required.
Permanently installed generators can be expensive to install. And they can also
impact your property value, potentially increasing your property taxes. With HP2S,
there are no hidden costs. Installation is generally less expensive and there's
no need for a concrete slab or additional site work.

overall cost to operate your generator as well as low maintenance.
Honda generators are renowned for quiet operation. Fixed standby generators are
considerably louder. For example, Honda's EU6500iS is only 60db, which is no louder

power of the Honda.
With Honda Portable Power Systems, you always have power. When the lights go out,
the system automatically switches to battery back up until your generator is running.
And when the power comes back on, the Universal Transfer Switch will automatically
switch you back to utility power.
