The Ogden, Utah area is known as a hotspot for outdoor recreation. The winter months provide exceptional opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledding, and snowmobiling. People from around the world travel to Utah to take advantage of our beautiful terrain.
During the summer months, our canyons fill with people camping, fishing, hiking, rock climbing, hunting, and picknicking. The use of a generator can make many of these activities more enjoyable. But there are some geographic things that should be considered.
Generators will produce fewer watts at the top of a mountain than they do on an ocean shore. They will produce fewer watts at 100 degrees F than they do at 75 degrees.
How the Numbers Break Down
If outside temperatures rise above 85 degrees F, you will forfeit .20% of power or wattage output per degree. Should temperatures reach 95 degrees F, you will have forfeited about 2.0% of full-scale power.
Altitude gains produce still more dramatic results. When you climb 1000 feet from sea level, you lose 3% to 4% of electric-generator output. Travel to any location one mile above sea level, and a 2,000-watt generator will put out just 1,650 to 1,700 watts, a 3,000-watt model 2,500 to 2,600 watts, and a 5,000-watt unit from 4,200 to 4,350 watts, and so forth.
Do you always need a larger generator then for high-heat and altitude locations? The answer is no. However, if you know for certain that a load is going to demand maximum wattage output, in either motor-starting surge watts or plain running watts, a bigger generator model may be necessary. What you do not want to do is discover, too late, that an electric generator lacks the capacity to power what it needs to.
If you have questions about using a generator in a National Forest Campground, please contact your local USFS Office.
