A generator provides backup or emergency power when there is a disruption in the electric supply. Disruptions could be caused by different factors, including grid failure, accidents, and inclement weather. Facilities that are highly dependent on electricity for critical operations, such as hospitals,can be paralyzed when there is a power supply interruption. These establishments require backup generators that will kick in instantly to keep power flowing.
Backup generators start automatically, ensuring continuous operation of essential facilities. Even a minute without power could be a matter of life or death forhospitals, emergency dispatch centers, and airport control towers.
There are many generators on the market that businesses can purchase to ensure smooth operations during power outages.
