My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
The short answer is - maybe, maybe not.
The truth is that we are hit with solar flares on a very regular basis, and they do nothing.
Before you start in on me here, I know what you are trying to ask - you are worried about the "Doomsday" solar flare that knocks out anything electrical.
Yes, it is possible for us to receive a solar flare that has strong enough EMF to knock out your genset. But it is a very weak possibility.
You have much more of a chance of a tornado or lightning strike taking out your genset.
