Very few people spend much time thinking about the energy infrastructure that powers their business. But, in the case of an interruption of power, what happens to your business? Cash registers and other critical machines halt operation. Even critical systems like refrigeration and security can be affected by power interruptions. What is the potential impact on your bottom line?

Both California and Texas provide recent examples of interrupted energy infrastructure, sometimes leaving clients without power for days. Estimated insurance costs to Texas alone in 2021 range from $10 – $20 billion for a four-day interruption. Can your business afford to go dark for that long?

A standby commercial generator is an on-site unit, sitting between the incoming power source and your business. If power is interrupted, the generator kicks in, restoring lost power in seconds instead of minutes, hours, or days in worse-case scenarios. Recent history shows us that the costs of power interruptions can be enormous. It could be that a single avoided power outage might pay for the cost of the generator itself.

Commercial standby generators come in a great variety of models and designs. Though some use power sources such as gasoline and diesel, by far the most reliable are those fueled by natural gas or propane. Most provide standard 220 Volt power when engaged, and there are even larger models that can provide three-phase power for those operations with extremely high power requirements.

Paul the Plumber has a long history of serving clients across Texas and would be happy to help you with any questions you have about the benefits of adding a backup generator to your business or installation of natural gas power to your new standby commercial generator.
