Protect your business with a commercial generator.

Just because you’re out of power doesn’t mean the expenses from facilities and employees stop. 48 hours without power can be the difference between success and failure for a business. Fortunately for you, you can prepare for these situations with the help of a commercial generator. Equipping your business with a generator can prevent the loss of revenue from associated with power outages, possibly paying for themselves in a single instance by keeping customers happy, revenue flowing, and everyone safe.

More than a simple convenience…

The benefits of commercial generators go beyond electrical comforts, ensuring not only the safety of employees and customers, but the safety of security systems and computer data as well. Generators can also help you provide aid to a community in need, bolstering your reputation. In addition, generators minimise disruptions in day-to-day activity, preserving productivity and keeping doors open to your loyal customer base. Does your business have the advantage of a commercial generator?

There are many times a commercial generator could really pay off, such as:

Natural disasters such as floods and fires.

Blackouts resulting from high electricity demands.

Power outages resulting from animals, auto accidents, and the nation’s aging electrical system.

Load shedding, and any extra power outages as a result of the strain put on the system by load shedding.

What type of commercial generator is best suited for your business?


While they are called portable, these generators are still large, generally the size of a trailer, with the entire trailer used to house the mechanisms of the generator.

They cost less than permanent models, but have a short run time, requiring up to several refuels per day during long-term outages. Portable models are useful for small to mid-sized businesses, or those in remote locations. Using portable models is not recommended for businesses with sensitive electronic equipment. Typical usage includes construction yards before power is available on site, remote locations and first responders.


A permanently installed backup system is capable of operating automatically upon signs of power loss. Permanent commercial generators are typically wired directly into your building’s electrical system through a generator transfer switch. Once the switch senses an outage, it isolates the wiring and items in need of power, and then transfers power needs to the generator. Once power is restored, the transfer switch then transfers back to the power source from your utility lines, turning off the generator. 

Permanent generators offer convenient, fuss-free emergency power for any sized business, and are capable of offering longer run times and higher power levels than portable models. They can also run on various fuels, allowing you to choose the most readily available source in your area. Compared to residential generators, these large machines can offer three phase power and are considerably quieter.

These are typically used where any interruption in power could be costly or dangerous, such as protecting data or keeping security systems online
