Ideal for standby emergency power, interruptible rate applications, peak shaving to lower energy costs, and prime power installations for heavy construction and mining operations, Bay City can provide you with a power system solution to meet your requirements.


All KOHLER industrial generator models are available with an emissions certification and UL listing directly from the factory, with no costly or time-consuming site certifications required. All models are available with a complete complement of accessories to meet almost any application, such as:


  • Weather and sound attenuation housings
  • Sub-base fuel tanks
  • Block heaters
  • Critical silencers

Bridging the utility with standby power is no small job, which is why KOHLER transfer switches are indispensable to all power systems. When power fails, power is transferred from the standby system within one-sixth of a second, allowing you to continue functioning as normal. The MPAC (TM) 1500 — KOHLER’s new generation of transfer switches. — is loaded with sophisticated technologies and advanced design features that ensure transfer of power to critical-load applications:


  • 30 to 4000 amps in standard-, programmed- and closed-transition configurations
  • Simple, integrated communication interface using an ethernet or LAN line
  • Service-entrance, non-automatic, automatic and bypass configurations
  • UL 1008 Listed, CSA and IBC Seismic Certified

KOHLER switchgears are designed to manage your power needs by carefully monitoring and adjusting the load between generators that have been installed to work in tandem. The paralleling of multiple generator sets is a long-accepted technique for increasing the amount of available electrical power as required for variable load conditions.


The switchgear will automatically synchronize and match the electrical power from a number of generators to the size of the load requirement. Our strength is the ability to design a complete, integrated system for your installation with one source of responsibility.

KOHLER switchgears are designed for:


  • North American and international specifications
  • Emergency standby or prime power installations
  • Interruptible rate or peak shaving applications
  • Wall- and floor-mounted configurations

Whether your concern lies with the simplest functions or the entire operation of a highly sophisticated system, KOHLER generator controls give you the power to manage the application. Each control product is customizable to your specifications and engineered with safety and simplicity to ensure displays and keypad functions remain user-friendly. Our complete line of Decision-Maker(TM) models features innovative network communications for remote monitoring and also include programmable software to accommodate future system upgrades.

KOHLER Diesel Generators are built to power every critical application on the planet, with KOHLER’s KD Series generators you get power up to 4MW.


Welcome to an entirely new generator experience. The next leap forward in industrial power. With almost a century of engineering know-how behind them, KOHLER’s new class of KD Series generators are built with an eye on the future — designed to last for decades, with better fuel economy and a smaller footprint than ever before.


With KOHLER’s KD Series Tier 4 Final Generators, there is no need for Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) or Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). With only a SCR, KOHLER has removed all those complicated aftertreatment specifications. Not only that, since KD Series generators are built for prime power and peak shaving, you can save big on utility bills.
