Many commercial buildings rely solely on the regular electric supply to power their operations. Those facilities could have a major problem in the event of a large-scale power failure. Calamities cannot be foreseen, and they usually come at the most inopportune times. A powerful hurricane could paralyze a city, including the operations of its hospitals, airports and other important services.
Some organizations have implemented a backup system. They may have purchased diesel-power generators to sustain activity through outages. But the generators may not be equipped to handle a prolonged loss of power. In fact, many generators can only power a few of the most basic appliances.
Commercial facilities must purchase diesel-powered generators that will be powerful enough to guarantee full operations for extended periods. There are several good generators on the market designed specifically for commercial and industrial needs. Here’s a look at one of them:
