A power outage can affect businesses either a little or a lot depending on the nature of the business. When the power is down everyone suffers whether it’s a retail location that can’t process charges because their charge terminals require electricity or an online company that disappears from the web because its servers are down. In the retail situation business can still be carried on to a degree but the online company is effectively closed for business until the power returns.
The problem is that outages seem to be occurring more frequently and for longer durations, putting businesses at the whim of an aging grid, power demands, and weather conditions. For many business owners, this type of situation is not tolerable due to risks imposed on both the bottom line and company data. These business owners are increasingly taking matters into their own hands by installing standby generators as a backup solution when power goes down.
These standby generators are ideal, especially when sensitive electronics are considered, due to their ability to switch on immediately once an outage is detected. This seamless transfer to standby power can keep a company in business and prevent the loss of data caused by even the shortest duration of outages.
Additionally, standby generators can be hooked up to natural gas or propane lines instead of using fuel tanks. This feature allows for fuel delivery to the generator for as long as the outage lasts and eliminates the need to change out empty tanks.
Many business owners aren’t leaving their power needs to chance. Instead, they’re turning to standby generators to ensure their power remains on 24/7.
