Summer Is Coming – Plan Now For Increased Power Outages

Summer Storm Clouds

It may seem too early to start talking about Summer, but when it comes to implementing a backup power system, now is the time to get started so that you have a solution in place before the extreme summer weather events start.

Summertime brings different weather events to different parts of the country, but a common effect of these weather events is an increase in power outages. Fires, floods, hurricanes, and tornados are just some of the causes of extended power outages. Additionally this year, parts of the country can expect power companies to proactively turn off power for safety as part of a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). This is a direct result of the fact that the power company’s own equipment has been found responsible for starting at least one major wildfire. While this may be an effective decision in order to help reduce the risk of wildfire during extreme winds, it also means more disruptions for businesses.

Backup power systems, including diesel and natural gas generators and UPS systems, can help protect your sensitive electrical equipment from an abrupt blackout, as well as keep your business operating through extended power outages.

A consistent, dependable source of electricity is important for just about all businesses, but especially so for the following:

Industrial manufacturing facilities

Farming greenhouses and chillers

Assisted living, medical and healthcare facilities

Data centers and co-location providers

Precision cooling and computer room air conditioning/handling

For these companies, an abrupt or extended power outage without a dependable backup power system in place can mean damaged equipment, damaged or ruined product, lost productivity, and ultimately a loss of thousands of dollars, if not more.
