Standby power

Reasons to buy a generator

With severe storms coming our way more frequently every year, it's critical to have a backup plan for standby power. Loss of power to your business can result in setbacks in production that may lead to lost time and revenue. If you have been undecided until now, consider these important reasons to buy a generator:

1. Standby power gives you peace of mind
Generators are installed directly into your building's electrical system and require minimal maintenance once a professional Generator Systems Technician has conpleted the installation. Business owners will experience peace of mind during severe weather, feeling confident that their standby power generator is protecting their business and investment.

2. Transfer switch does the work
Our generators are customized with a 'smart' power management system. When the utility power dips below the levels required, the transfer switch signals the generator to start up and transfer the power supply from the utility grid to your generator, which in turn provides power to your business.

An authorized Generator Systems Technician and a qualified electrician install both generator and transfer switch according to standards, which ensures yours and your employees' safety when your system is running. In addition to signalling the transfer of power, the transfer switch allows you to prioritize and direct power to critical systems where it's needed most.

3. A generator minimizes business downtime
Businesses rely on power to run systems such as servers, refrigeration, lighting and heating, that could be damaged in the event of a power outage. Reduce or eliminate lost time, money and worry by ensuring the continued operation and the safety of your most crucial business systems with standby power.

4. Keep your security systems up and running
You have considered all systems required to keep your business running -- don't forget about building security. Door and window alarms, security cameras and emergency response features all depend on power. When you consider the safety and security of your employees and customers, it makes sense to have a generator in place for backup power in the event of a power outage.

5. Power at the job site
Don't let a remote location delay your project. Many job sites rely on their generator to keep the job running smoothly regardless of how far they are from the public utilities service. With a generator onsite you have the freedom and flexibility to keep your systems and tools operational for hours at a time, even in remote locations.
