Benefits of Gas gensets

You have heard of the efficiency of gas generators and you may be wondering if it makes more sense to use a gas genset instead of a diesel genset for your business. The obvious and practical choice must be gas gensets.

Natural gas is known to be one of the most affordable and effective fuels and in terms of cost, except for coal which is cheaper. However, coal is a high pollutant.

Gas gensets are commonly used in areas where the supply of fuel is made readily available through pipelines. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages: -


The most apparent benefits of using natural gas generators are:

a) They are cleaner
b) They are less expensive than other non-renewable fuels
c) And is considerably efficient.

1.    When compared to oil and coal, the emissions of sulfur, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) are considerably lower. Therefore, natural gas is one of the cleanest fossil fuels.

2.    Natural gas generators are also effective in reducing costs when used to power homes. This is because electricity from the main utility source is a far more expensive alternative.

3.    Natural gas is also readily available in areas where it is delivered directly through pipelines. So, there is no need to store fuel - this makes gas generators very easy to install and use.

4.    Natural gas is safer when inhaled in small amounts. Natural gas does not produce soot or ash and any leakage can be detected immediately.

5.    Natural gas generators can be easily installed in confined or restricted spaces.

6.    Gas gensets do not produce a pungent odor, while generators powered by oil or diesel tend to do so.


As you can see, gas gensets tend to have quite a few advantages. However, the choice of genset depends on your budget and the purpose you will be using it for.

Mahindra Powerol offers 25 kVA & 125 kVA Gas gensets and apart from gas gensets, they also manufacture diesel generators from 5 kVA to 625 kVA. Gensets from Mahindra Powerol are known for their fuel efficiency and reliability. To know more about, visit or call 1-800-419-1999
