The summer months see many of the residents living in the Sandy, UT area heading to the mountains to enjoy the endless outdoor recreational opporunities that many of us enjoy. This raises a question about how geography can impact generator performance.
Sandy residents, all Utah residents for that matter, need to understand the impact that both altitude and temperature can play in generator output. A generator will produce maximum output at 85 degrees. Each additional temperature increase of 5 degrees results in about a 1% decline in maximum output. Thus, at 100 degrees F, you will lose around 3 percent of the max running and surge watts.
Elevation plays an even greater role in loss of generator output. Anticipate dropping about 3.5 percent of a generator's maximum watts for every 1000 ft rise in elevation above sea level. For example, when using a generator in Denver, you could lose up to 20% of its wattage simply as a result of higher elevation. Manufacturer generator power ratings are based at sea level with moderate temperatures. So any generator you purcahse is going to suffer some power loss(compared to manufacturer specs) with greater temperature and higher elevation.
Northern Utah temps surpass 85 F quite frequently during the summer months and our elevation here in Sandy, Utah is 4450 ft. As long as customers are aware of how temperature and elevation can impact generator performance, it is not difficult to purchase a satisfactory unit.
For information about using a generator in one of our National Forests, you can contact a local Forest Service office.
