Standby Power - Never Lose Electricity

Are you prepared to run your business in the event of a power outage? The backbone of many businesses is a standby power generator. A good generator will provide stability and reliability, allowing home or business owners to continue on being productive while others are at the mercy of their municipal power company. In some cases, these generators are required by law if system failure may result in life safety hazards. They produce electricity by burning liquid petroleum (LP), natural gas (NG), or diesel—electricity your home or business needs in the event of a disaster. Tornados, microbursts, hurricanes, earth quakes, and even car accidents can knock out power in your area for hours or days. Backup power systems become crucial for homes or businesses in these situations.

Prior to generator purchase it is important to have backup requirements checked by an electrician. Knowing whether your electricity is single phase or 3-phase determines the type of generator available to your needs. Motors are generally factory-outfitted to utilize either LP, NG, or diesel fuel. An engine with lower RPMs and a low-maintenance rust-proof aluminum exterior would make a 27 kW unit perfect for urban or residential use. That type of generator could power small to medium sized homes easily, as well as large to extra-large homes of 5600 to 7400 square feet. Even an engine that produces as little as 10kW can power a small home or business of 1200 to 1600 square feet. Stepping up to a 130kW 3-phase unit would allow a restaurant or food seller to power a facility of 7500 to 8000 square feet. No more perishable goods going bad when the local power company loses power in your area. Even a commercial warehouse of 19000 to 20000 square feet can be powered by a 130kW standby power motor, as well as a residential compound with two or more buildings or an extra-large home sized 26500 to 34500 square feet. The more complicated the need, the more important it is to have an electrician help you plan your backup requirements. Standby Power

Aside from power requirements and brand names like Generac, Winco, and Winpower, there are other factors that help one generator stand out from another. Units that offer climate protection provide greater stability during adverse weather conditions. Sound insulation is another feature that can be a deciding factor if noise control for urban/suburban environments is important. Generators in residential areas benefit greatly by this feature. Non-rusting aluminum housings provide maintenance free upkeep. Rubber-mounted engines provide vibration control. Rotating-field brushless alternators, liquid cooling, electronic governors, and cast iron heads add to the premium quality of your unit, providing reliability you can trust when you need it to provide power. Even the decision of which fuel source your LP, NG, or diesel standby power generator burns needs to be carefully considered as price and availability of fuel will affect your generators usefulness.

Disaster and power outage prevention takes proper planning, but having a reliable standby power motor as part of your plan should be a priority for home and commercial business owners who need constant power by law or for who need to provide reliable services to their community when disaster strikes.
