About PGMA

Formed in 2009, the Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association (PGMA) is a trade association that seeks to develop and influence safety and performance standards for our industry’s products. Its members include major manufacturers of portable generators sold in North America and represents a significant majority of the industry. PGMA developed ANSI/ PGMA G300, the only comprehensive portable generator safety and performance standard, and in 2018, revised the standard to include safety features requiring carbon monoxide sensing technology which shuts the generator off when CO accumulates above a certain level. The association is also dedicated to educating consumers on the safe use of portable generators, and has developed the Take it Outside™ campaign to support its mission.
