That depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For a construction contractor, a 2500 watt generator might be sufficient to supply power needs of his crew. To power a home during an outage, perhaps a somewhat larger, 6000 watt generator would be desirable. Some sites that have sizing calculators are Ridgid.com/generators and generac.com. There are many others.

Buy a 7500 watt and you'll be sitting pretty.
