Did you notice that our portable generators are being updated with CSA (Canadian Standard Association) approval? We are very excited to add this safety certification so our friendly neighbors to the north can have dependable power for all of their needs.
What is the purpose of CSA?
CSA is a similar body as UL (Underwriter’s Laboratories) is in the US.
CSA standards regulate safety of applicable electrical products. In all ten provinces and two territories of Canada, laws require that electrical machinery and appliances connected to power sources conform to CSA safety standards regardless of type or quantity. In this respect, meeting CSA standards is mandatory for applicable electrical products.
