Backup Generator for Commercial Properties

Power outages affect us all and business blackouts are increasing every year in the US. Businesses without the ability to conduct transactions are losing out on potential revenue isn’t the only reason to consider installing a commercial standby generator. Often times you may permit your business to continue operations during an outage increasing productivity. Backup generators play a vital role during these steadily rising blackouts (which are power outages that are an hour or longer) in keeping your business steadily flowing.

1) Generator Placement: One of the keys factors is to identify where the backup generator is going to be located. When taking this into consideration factors from fuel supply, enclosure type, and ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) should all be taken into consideration.

2) Arguably more important than step one is identifying power requirements. In the time of an out what needs to be functioning. This is a crucial step to take into consideration, the more power required the greater costs involved.

3) Maintenance Schedule: Just like anything else it's important to follow regular service and exercises on your backup generator to perform at its peak when expected.
