Bi-Fuel Generac Generator Disaster Relief

Bi-fuel Generac Generators for Disaster Relief

Generac manufactures reliable standby and portable power generators that many people and organizations rely on for emergency power during disaster relief and emergency response efforts. Law enforcement agencies and organizations like FEMA and DHS often need these generators for providing natural disaster relief, search and rescue missions, and other applications.

Bi-fuel Generac Diesel Generators Used in Natural Disaster Response and Relief

Generac diesel generators typically run solely on diesel fuel, but this reliance on diesel alone can limit the generator’s runtime due to limited diesel supplies. To get the most from your available diesel supply and ensure it lasts as long as you need it, use an OptiBlend® retrofit kit to convert your Generac diesel generator into a bi-fuel diesel generator.

The OptiBlend® solution uses multiple components to introduce natural gas into the generator’s intake air stream, maintaining a consistent and precise air-to-gas ratio. The use of natural gas helps reduce the need for diesel to run a generator at full power, resulting in an extended runtime and diesel supplies that last longer. OptiBlend® retrofits Generac generators using components including a gas train, air gas mixer (AGM), and fuel control valve (FVC) to enable bi-fuel power generation. These capabilities are particularly essential for operations needing long-lasting emergency power supplies.

Generac Diesel Power Generator Applications

A wide range of applications rely on Generac diesel power generators, many of which can benefit from bi-fuel retrofits from OptiBlend®. The following are some of the main applications that regularly use these generators:

First Responders

Medical personnel, law enforcement, and other first responders use Generac power generators to provide power to search and rescue operations. They often use these generators to power temporary shelters and medical sites.


Facilities often use diesel power generators for supplying power to many types of systems and equipment. For instance, water purification facilities often use them for pumping and purifying water. Refrigerated storage facilities also use these generators for storing food and other perishables, while logistics operations may use them for powering warehouses and other facilities.


Water treatment, sewage treatment, and communications systems often rely on Generac generators for continuous power.

Medical Care Facilities

Many types of medical care facilities need reliable power supplies to provide adequate care for patients and maintain operations. Generac generators may supply power for electronic records management, coordination and communication, medication storage, patient care and monitoring equipment, HVAC systems, and other utilities, including oxygen supplies.
