Superior to the Competition: The all-new Generac iQ2000 provides quieter, smarter power wherever you go.

Generac’s new iQ2000 inverter power generator is third-party tested and proven to be quieter* than current market leader Honda, ensuring hunters, campers, even tailgaters can savor the sounds of nature without compromising power. And Generac didn’t stop at sound: End-users also benefit from the intuitive, fully functional LED dashboard that shows fuel level status, remaining runtime and wattage use.

“We’re already experiencing tremendous consumer interest because outdoor enthusiasts have never had access to a source of portable power quite like the iQ2000,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, Generac CEO. “For the first time, people have a smart, powerful generator option without all the excess noise they’ve had to put up with previously and with the added benefit of being the only inverter generator engineered and built in the U.S.”**

Known for product innovation, Generac designed the all-new iQ2000 with state-of-the-art sound mitigation technology coupled with advanced electronics that greatly reduces noise and improves fuel consumption. As a result, the iQ2000 provides the ideal way to enjoy the benefits of modernized camping and outdoor activities, without disturbing the sounds of nature or fellow campers.

“Launching a new product is always exciting, but this one is particularly impressive given the long list of benefits the iQ2000 provides,” said Jagdfeld. “From tailgating parties, camping trips, hunting expeditions and outdoor DIY projects, the iQ2000 is a powerful, portable companion for outdoor activities that’s truly the market leader.”

Generac also makes the iQ2000 extremely easy to operate with the innovative PowerDial™ that integrates the start/run/stop functions into one easy-to-use control. Plus, the Smart LED dashboard shows fuel level, remaining runtime, wattage use and generator status. Users won’t have to waste time during their outdoor activities trying to gauge the status of their generator; the iQ2000 will let them know when to refuel and easily identify available wattage.
For anyone looking to bring the comforts of the indoors along on their outdoor adventure (or for serious “glampers”) the iQ2000 features paralleling capabilities. Users can combine two generators for nearly double the power without sacrificing portability. So bring on the tent air conditioners, laptop chargers and popcorn maker – the iQ2000 can make even the least outdoorsy users feel at home in the wild.

The iQ2000 inverter portable generator from Generac will be available September 2015 from select retailer partners across the country, online at Generac.com, and from participating Generac distribution partners. For immediate information, including product details, visit Generac.com/iQ2000.
*Based on independent lab tests using ISO 9614 to measure sound power levels vs. Honda EU2000i.
**Built in the USA using domestic and foreign parts.
