Kohler & Loftin Equipment Donate Standby Generator to Casa de Esperanza

Generators of Houston provides free installation for facility that protects children in need 

HOUSTON, Texas – April 23, 2020 – Kohler Generators and Loftin Equipment Company, Houston, have donated a 48-kW KOHLER standby generator, transfer switch and related equipment to Casa de Esperanza, a nonprofit organization in the greater Houston area that strives to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect among at-risk infants, children and their families. The 48-kW automatic standby generator from Kohler and Loftin Equipment – a Kohler distributor – will provide emergency backup power to the residential neighborhood where children at serious risk from child abuse or neglect are cared for. 

We serve an extremely vulnerable population,” said Shelley Starr, executive director of Casa de Esperanza. "Our primary goal is safety, and we have a responsibility to ensure that the children and staff remain safe in the event of a natural disaster or major power outage. Having continuous electrical service to the home during an outage will ensure that food, formula and medications can continue to be refrigerated and our children will be safe.”

Kohler and Loftin Equipment Company donated the generator, while Generators of Houston is providing installation free of charge. Generators of Houston has worked with Casa de Esperanza for more than 13 years.

 The donated KOHLER generator will be permanently installed outside the home, similar to a central air conditioning unit. When power is lost, the standby generator will automatically kick in – often within seconds – and can power everything in the home, including lights, heating/cooling systems, refrigerators, sump pumps, home security systems and delicate electronics like computers, big screen TVs and more.

“Reliable backup power is critical when you’re dealing with serious issues involving individual safety,” said Melanie Tydrich, senior channel manager from Kohler. “We, along with our partners Loftin Equipment and Generators of Houston are pleased to provide this peace of mind that will keep the home continuously powered when its residents and staff need it most.”

 The KOHLER automatic standby generator is currently being installed at Case de Esperanza. Members of the media and community will be invited to an official ribbon cutting at a date yet to be determined.
