Almost everything in the modern business world relies on electric power and your business is no exception. You need it to run your computers, keep the lights on, and the HVAC flowing through your facilities. Without it, there is no networking, contacting customers, running equipment, or getting any work done at all. Time is money. Every minute your facilities go dark due to power failure costs you thousands of dollars in lost productivity and opportunity cost. This is exactly the reason why we offer emergency rental generators to commercial and industrial businesses.
The common reasons companies like yours call in for both long and short-term rental power services are:
- When The Power Goes Out. Every now and then something happens to the line of power or maybe a line blew down in a storm, an old tree branch fell, or something even more unusual. The point is that you will not control it and will not be able to see it coming. If your standby system simply is not sufficient or the outage goes on longer than it can compensate for, this is the number one reason why people find themselves calling up for a rental portable generator.
- When Your Grid Needs More Power. Even if your power consumption patterns have remained the same, certain regions and times of year often face rolling black or brown outs due to an increased amount of power used across the entire grid. This is most common in cold climates when everyone fires up their central air and space heaters or hot climates when everyone cranks up the AC. If your facilities will not afford to wait these out, a rental generator is exactly the kind of backup you need for these temporary problems.
- Backup For Special Events. If your company is hosting a special event, all the extra lights, equipment, appliances, or displays can put a lot of extra stress on your normal power supply. While this may be beautiful, fun, and ultimately profitable, it also puts you at a much higher risk of overloading your own power supply and nothing kills a party like a power outage. Luckily, most rental companies take care of all this and let organizers focus on the event.
- While Repairing Your Sub Station. If you are thinking about electricity, you are well aware that your company’s internal substation and electrical equipment needs maintenance and upgrades like anything else. Unfortunately, it is also the way your facilities get power. If you will not afford to shut down during the repair times, a temporary power solution is the perfect answer. A rental generator will keep your business rolling or even when your substation is down for repairs.
The listed reasons why you might need a rental generator are only the most common. There are still dozens of edge-cases and truly unexpected and unpredictable events that will, for some reason, cut the power to your business. Make sure you know where and how to get an emergency rental generator before an emergency occurs.
