The portable generators will provide reliable power for lighting and computer usage, as well as refrigerators and freezers critical for maintaining COVID-19 vaccines within manufacturer-recommended temperature ranges.

Honda is working with state and county officials to provide each state with 10 Honda EG2800i portable generators. The generators are being allocated to state or county health departments based on each state’s vaccination distribution plan.

Portable generators can provide essential power for mobile vaccination centers that are being used to get vaccines to hard-to-reach areas and vulnerable or underserved populations.

The donation of generators to vaccination sites is part of Honda’s ongoing efforts to support communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has included a $1 million donation and an associate matching gift program to address food insecurity in communities across North America, the donation of face shields to healthcare workers at medical facilities in 45 states, the modification of 10 Honda Odyssey minivans for use by the City of Detroit to transport healthcare workers and people potentially infected with COVID-19, and the production and donation of diaphragm compressors, a key component of portable ventilators used in hospitals and by first responders to help those stricken with the virus.
