Agriculture & Farm Power

Power Generators for the Agricultural Industry

Certain industries rely heavily on industrial generators to ensure smooth operations — agriculture is one of them. Farms need consistent and reliable power to run equipment and maintain seamless operations, regardless of the circumstances. This need has grown in today’s increasingly automated agricultural world, as complex systems require consistent power.

If unpredictable weather shuts the grid down, you can remain in operation.

If you’re a rural farm with off-grid operations, Global Power Supply offers a wide range of diesel and natural gas generators to meet your unique needs.

Whether you need extra power to run irrigation systems or a consistent energy supply for planting and harvesting, generators provide reliable electrical power for farms.

Supplemental or Backup Power for Agriculture

At Global Power Supply, we have been providing peace of mind to farmers and their families since 2004. We understand how power outages affect a farm’s bottom line. Production loss can be significant, and the consequences are immense for some.

When access to water relies on an electric pump from a well, for example, a loss of power is a frightening experience. Being without power for even an hour can be detrimental for large farms. Crops must be irrigated, freezers and coolers kept cold, animals need water, etc.

Generators can also help farms expand in areas without access to power. Commercial greenhouse generators, for example, can provide a solution to farmers in off-grid scenarios.

Powering Off-Grid Farms

The nation’s agricultural industry continues to expand, moving into many off-grid regions.

In these areas, land is available, but it can be challenging to access power.

What once was a major restriction for expansion is now possible for any farm that wants to extend its grids. Advanced electrical generation systems allow farms of all sizes to operate independently from the grid. Even those most resourceful, investing in renewable water, solar, or wind power, still need reliable backup power solutions to prevent intermittent interruptions.

Meeting the Unique Power Requirements of Farms

Without the support of powerful generators, farms would be down for days in certain instances. This halt in operations can be detrimental, especially when livestock is involved.

Generators can be particularly critical for dairy farmers, the poultry industry, wineries and farmers relying on automated crop systems or have time-sensitive harvests. However, reliable generator backup power for agriculture is key for all farm types, especially those that require supplemental energy solutions.

Here are some examples that benefit from reliable generator backup power:

  • Greenhouse Operations
  • Air Handling
  • Irrigation Systems
  • Pumps and Compressors
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Dairy Operations
  • Vineyard Harvesting
  • Milking
  • Poultry Industry
  • Horticulture Industry
  • Indoor Growing
  • Climate Control Power
  • Cannabis Growers
  • Warehouse Cultivation

Global Power Supply Is Your Trusted Industrial Generator Partner

Do you have automated greenhousee features that are critical for operations? If so, commercial greenhouse generators can help ensure your farm’s sustainable, prosperous future.

Perhaps you’re a poultry farm that has implemented power-reliant feed and watering systems, or, as a dairy farmer, you rely on power to track feeding and milking schedules — not to mention safe milk storage. If so, high-quality generators for dairy farmers and the poultry industry can be a game-changer.

Regardless of the agricultural application, Global Power Supply understands the unique requirements of running a farm. That is why we are proud to be an industry-trusted partner. With decades of experience, Global Power Supply has helped farms unlock their full potential.

Diesel or Natural Gas?

While diesel is the most common fuel source for powering commercial generators for farms, it’s not the only option.

Diesel is an efficient fuel, offering a high energy density to volume ratio. The engines in diesel generators often also require less maintenance than other types, allowing farms to run generators longer without required maintenance.

However, there are cases where a natural gas generator may be a more viable option. In some cases, gas generators can be converted to run-off propane, offering greater flexibility.

Power Project Considerations:

  • Initial cost
  • Fuel costs
  • Repair and maintenance costs
  • Fuel storage
  • Safety
  • Noise
  • Emissions
  • Durability and longevity
