Celebrate National Picnic Month with Added Power

By Generac PR Staff July 11, 2016


When a favorite family pastime gets recognized for an entire summer month, it’s time to take that activity to the next level. July is National Picnic Month, so this year, bring an extra helping of backup power with the Generac iQ2000 portable inverter generator.

Americans love the outdoors. In 2015, nearly half participated in at least one outdoor activity according to the Outdoor Foundation®. Youth and young adults reported camping as the activity they were most interested in, and it was in the top three for adults over 25 years of age. But just because almost 50% of Americans are heading outside for leisure activities, doesn’t mean they need to completely disconnect.

Sandwiches, cold chicken, even grilled foods are nothing new to the picnic scene, so mix things up this year by adding a slow cooker and serving red beans and rice. Plug in a blender and enjoy fun, slushy beverages. Ensure that cool breeze never ends – if for no other reason than to keep the bugs away – by setting up a box fan. The Generac iQ2000 provides quiet power and the ideal way to enjoy a modernized picnic experience without disturbing guests or others enjoying the outdoors.

“Generac wants to give families and nature lovers an outdoor experience that powers their needs but won’t distract from their experience,” said Jodi Marose, Generac spokesperson. “The iQ2000 is the perfect answer. It lets you make the most of your time outside because it’s a smart, powerful generator without the excess noise.”

Known for product innovation, Generac designed the iQ2000 with state-of-the-art sound mitigation technology and 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 outdoor enthusiasts.

As an added bonus, the ultra-lightweight design of the iQ2000 is specifically engineered for easy portability to take along on the search for the perfect picnic site.
