All Utah customers purchasing a motorized generator should consider altitude and summer temperatures when selecting a model. Generators are designed to produce rated output at sea level, and in ambient temperatures of 85 degrees Fahrenheit or less. Utah's high elevation means that some power loss (altitude-related) is unavoidable. Such power losses are certain to increase in July, when temperatures in just about all locations in the Beehive State exceed 85 degrees (and temperature-related power losses can easily extend into June and August or beyond).
You already know that maximum generator output is available at 85 degrees Fahrenheit or below, and at sea-level elevations. So how much leakage of power occurs when these conditions aren't met? For every 5 degrees Fahrenheit (above 85 degrees), the loss will be approximately 1%. At 100 degrees Fahrenheit then, your maximum running (and surge) watts will be 3% lower than manufacturer rated. The generator also loses 3% to 4% of its rated wattage for every 1000 feet in elevation (above sea level) at which it is operated. A generator that is operated one full mile above sea level can lose as much as 20% of its available wattage.
Extra heat and elevation may or may not require a larger or more-powerful generator model. It really depends on the prospective load. If you know, for instance, that full rated capacity (running or surge watts) will be needed to start or power an intended load, if there's no discretion as to when the load is operated (and if occasional load failure due to to environmental factors is not acceptable), then you will need a bigger generator with higher output.
