Diesel generators have a low up-front cost, with even a modestly sized unit being able to provide enough power for most of the important appliances in the average home. Installation is also relatively easy which makes them the best alternative to the unreliable and expensive electricity.

South Africa is one of the biggest markets for diesel generators in Africa. The market has quite a number of companies that offer various generators at different capacities and features with the hope to satisfy the user’s needs.
