That was a good read. This was the answer and it would seem unlikely many genset run with less than 25% load or one probably wouldn't be running them at all. I got a chuckle out of the recommendation that one consider having two different size generators to properly match loads.

A generator should never run continually with less than a 25% load. 35% to 70% is optimal.
