KOHLER, Wis. – Jan 5, 2023 – Kohler Co. previews its new 26kW air-cooled home standby generator and its 10 new exclusive colors at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that kicks off today. The striking new colors bring enhanced customization options to consumers within the home standby generator industry.

Kohler has been long known for its smart innovations and bold color leadership, both of which are emphasized in the new offerings within its home generator product line. The “Blend in or stand out.” campaign highlights exclusive KOHLER colors and patterns that help homeowners make their standby generator complement the aesthetic of their home or stand out to make a statement. These new colors join the recently launched Mossy Oak camouflage patterns offered on select KOHLER home generators.


Exclusive KOHLER Colors (available later 2023)

Key Points/ Design Features:

  • 10 popular home colors offered on the KOHLER RCA generators. 
  • This allows the generator to “Blend In” or “Stand Out” with the landscaping or to complement the color of the home.
  • The finish has passed Kohler’s rigorous environmental exposure testing ensuring the color will last for years.
  • The Exclusive KOHLER Colors will be available on the 14RCA, 20RCA and the new 26RCA home standby generators.


Mossy Oak Camouflage Patterns (available now)

Key Points/ Design Features:

  • Options allow the generator to “Blend In” or “Stand Out” with the surrounding landscaping.
  • The Mossy Oak pattern is applied to the enclosure panels with a hydrographic process that chemically bonds the ink to the base paint to ensure the finish survives Kohler’s rigorous environmental exposure testing and the pattern color will last for years. This is the same process that is used to apply camouflage to ATVs and the carbon fiber pattern to the dashboard of cars.
