GENERAC: 7 Benefits of Investing in a Backup Power Generator


MEXICO CITY, Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The following statement was issued by Frank Moreno, Sr. Director Marketing Latin America, Generac:

If you run a company, you should consider the massive benefits from having a backup power system. Not only do you save money, in the long-term, you will keep yourself from worrying and wasting energy. If you are considering the possibility of purchasing a generator for your business, please keep in mind the following:

  1. Backup Generators Can Act in a Matter of Seconds. Blackouts and power outages can last for several days when the utility company is experiencing problems of some kind. However, with a backup generator, it will only be a few seconds before the generator starts feeding your company or business.
  2. Prevent Food Decomposition and Loss. Corporate canteens, catering businesses or restaurants could suffer major economic losses if the food that needs to be refrigerated is left without protection when the power goes out.
  3. When the Power Returns, the Transition will be Smooth. Since the equipment (typically) remains in operation for several minutes after the main source of energy has been restored, some problems are avoided, such as the voltage variations that occur when power comes back. Once the network is stable, and the engine has cooled down a bit, the emergency generator shuts down, and is then ready for any new incident.
  4. There will be no Interruptions in your Security System. With an emergency generator that goes live in a matter of seconds, you can rest assured that your company or business will remain protected, thus preventing burglary and looting in the event of a blackout or a natural disaster.
  5. Your Operations will Continue, Even During Long Outages. You can do computer work, presentations, meetings and teleconferences even during long power outages. With a backup generator, you don’t even have to get up from where you are, or to interrupt your activities.
  6. You and your employees will remain Connected to the World at all Times. Forget about being left in isolation, in the event of power failures and natural disasters your telecommunications will not be affected.
  7. You Never Know When Will you Need Backup Power. The electricity supply may be unexpectedly affected for many reasons: harsh climate, trees that fall on the distribution lines, natural disasters or even rodents that bite the wires.

APR Energy Helps to Restore Critically Needed Power in Puerto Rico

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — When natural disasters knock out critical power supplies, customers around the world count on APR Energy to deliver large-scale power fast. The latest is hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, where APR Energy has commissioned two mobile gas turbines and connected them to the local power grid just 15 days after its equipment arrived on site.

The fast-track solution features two new GE TM2500 Gen 8 mobile gas turbines, which will help to restore power in the San Juan area and stabilize the power grid, reducing the risk of outages.

“We are honored to be able to help the people of Puerto Rico at this extremely difficult time. Our company has provided emergency power after disasters such as the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan in 2012, and we know how critical it is to restore electricity as quickly as possible,” said APR Energy Chairman John Campion. “I am extremely proud of our team for getting this plant up and running in just 15 days, one of the fastest installations ever for the TM2500.”

On October 13 – the day after the contract was signed with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractor Weston Solutions – APR Energy’s turbines arrived at the port of San Juan. The following day, they were transported to the Palo Seco power plant for installation.

“APR Energy is committed to helping Puerto Rico for as long as necessary, and we stand ready to provide additional generating capacity and grid stability support as requested,” Campion said.

The Puerto Rico project uses the newest generation of GE’s turbine technology found in jet aircraft engines. The fuel-flexible turbines offer a higher power density and lower emissions than competing solutions using diesel reciprocating engines, as well as the ability to switch from diesel to natural gas if necessary.

As the world’s leading provider of mobile turbine power, APR Energy has used the technology to generate electricity on other Caribbean islands including Martinique and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. On St. Thomas, where the company has operated since 2012, its highly reliable TM2500 turbines continued to provide electricity to island residents while much of the power generation in other parts of the Caribbean was knocked out following Hurricane Irma in early September and Maria two weeks later.

More than 200 mobile and trailer-mounted TM2500s have been deployed globally and in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth, including the deserts of Africa and remote communities in Asia. Based on GE’s proven LM2500 product family with over 90 million operational hours of experience, the TM2500 can be transported via land, sea or air and can be commissioned in days. It can ramp up to full power within minutes to support grid security during periods of high demand, and the latest TM2500 unit can generate more than 35MW of power using gas and/or distillate liquid fuels for greater flexibility.

Generac: Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Electrical Storms. How To Continue With Your Life And Your Business?

MEXICO CITY, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Recently, hurricane Irma made landfall in Puerto Rico and the consequences were devastating. According to the island’s Emergency Management Agency, almost one million people ran out of electricity and there are more than 50,000 without water; 14 hospitals used generators due to loss of power, and some roads were obstructed by fallen trees and poles. The director of the agency warned that some areas could be without power for up to 6 months due to the deterioration of infrastructure.

It´s an earthquake, it’s an earthquake!

Recently Mexico City suffered one of the most damaging earthquakes since ‘85. An earthquake of 7.1 shook the cities of Puebla, Mexico City and Morelos, causing fallen buildings, destroyed homes, homeless people, offices and evacuated companies for inspection of buildings’ infrastructure to see whether or not they can continue their activities.

In response to this incident, there was damage to the infrastructure of 93 telecommunications service sites in CDMX, which resulted in the loss of voice services. In the State of Mexico, the damages reached the infrastructure of 44 places and 7 in Morelos.

“Facing natural disasters with the force of an earthquake or hurricane, a culture of prevention is necessary, which means that we have the right tools for our day-to-day continuity. For this reason, it is important to always be prepared and have backup energy systems that allow for coping with the worst natural phenomenon or a failure in the supply of the public network”, said Samara Salgado, Marketing Director for Latin America of Generac.

Back-up units or a power generation system to prevent a power outage from putting the operation at risk in a home, businesses, schools and even large enterprises with critical applications are key equipment, which from Generac’s point of view must be considered in any continuity theme.

According to Samara, “In this context, electric power backup systems are no longer just a system for critical loads; nowadays they’ve become the system of systems, the backbone and a strategic tool for companies, either because the business is considered mission critical or just because it pretends to achieve a competitive advantage, while for the public sector, servicing and guiding the citizenry is not optional. The idea is to consider it as strategic within the business continuity and emergency service plan.”

APR Energy Awarded LPG-Fired Project in U.S. Virgin Islands

Innovative plant features first TM2500+ turbine in commercial operation to run on LPG

JACKSONVILLE, Florida, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — APR Energy, a global leader in fast-track power solutions, announces today that it has signed a 12-month contract with U.S. Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) to provide 25MW of power generation using liquid petroleum gas (LPG). The project features a retrofitted GE TM2500+ mobile gas turbine, the first ever to be commercially operated on LPG – a significant milestone that will provide customers access to a cheaper and cleaner-burning alternative to other conventional petroleum-based fuels.

The project is the latest in a string of business wins for APR Energy since being privatized at the beginning of the year, bringing the total of new awards, extensions and expansions in 2016 to more than 1GW. The project also is the company’s sixth award in the past year using mobile gas turbines.

“This first-of-its-kind project will enable the USVI to leverage its significant investment in LPG infrastructure by greatly reducing the cost and environmental impact of power generation,” said APR Energy Executive Chairman John Campion. “Experts are forecasting a 15-percent increase in the price of diesel fuel during the next two years, while LPG prices are expected to remain stable. Using LPG should provide WAPA with significant savings compared with diesel-powered reciprocating engines, which are common in the Caribbean.”

“The switch to the lower-cost and cleaner-burning LPG as the primary source of fuel in generating electricity in the Virgin Islands has been the single biggest capital project WAPA has undertaken in recent history,” said WAPA Executive Director and CEO Julio Rhymer, Sr. “We are excited about potentially providing lower rates for our customers and are pleased that with today’s contract signing APR Energy will be part of our energy solution in the Virgin Islands. For years now, WAPA has had a positive relationship with APR Energy, and we are pleased to work with them in becoming the world’s first electric utility to place an LPG-fired TM2500+ into commercial operation.”

Campion expects this project to serve as a model for other utilities looking to benefit quickly from LPG as an alternative, cheaper fuel source. “Interest in LPG is growing in many markets around the world, especially in the Caribbean and parts of Africa and Asia, where availability of the fuel has expanded significantly in the last few years,” Campion said. “The TM2500+ turbine is one of the few fast-track technologies capable of running on LPG, and it offers customers the added flexibility to switch quickly and seamlessly between fuels based on price and availability.”

The new project supplements APR Energy’s existing 25MW diesel-fuelled turbine plant installed in 2012 for WAPA, bringing its total generation at the site to 50MW.

Viking Cold Solutions’ Thermal Energy Storage system demonstrates over 30% energy savings in a 3rd party study and is recommended for adoption by utilities in California

An innovative thermal energy storage system using phase change material and intelligent controls provides significant cost savings, enhanced product monitoring, and protection for cold storage operators and supermarkets.

HOUSTON, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Viking Cold Solutions, a leader in thermal energy storage systems, today announced that a Southern California Utility, along with an independent 3rd party energy management firm, ASWB Engineering, completed a Field Demonstration Study of the Viking Cold Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system. The study verified a reduction in electricity consumption of 30% and 39% in two separate low temperature cold storage facilities in the San Diego area. Based on the results of this study, the Utility and ASWB recommended that California utilities adopt the technology into their Energy Efficiency incentive programs.

The purpose of the independent study was to determine the effectiveness of Viking Cold’s patented TES system in cold storage freezer applications and to qualify the system for California utility inventive programs as part of the California Energy Commission Emerging Technologies initiative.

“The benefits of the technology include reduced refrigeration equipment run time and increased product safety during power emergencies due to the thermal storage capabilities of the solution,” said John Baffa, Professional Engineer at ASWB Engineering.

“It is exciting to see our technology recognized by a leading utility energy efficiency program and I’m pleased that the study validates the results that Viking Cold customers already experience daily,” said James Bell, CEO of Viking Cold Solutions. “Our passive, non-mechanical system is a cost-effective way to reduce energy consumption across the cold chain, from walk-in freezers to large distribution warehouses, which can be used stand-alone, or to boost the return with solar PV.”

Two locations currently using Viking Cold’s TES system were studied by ASWB. The first test site, a walk-in freezer on Camp Pendleton in Southern California, showed a net facility energy savings of 30%.  The second test site is a commercial freezer warehouse at the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. By leveraging the Food Bank’s existing photovoltaic system to run the refrigeration during the day and using Viking Cold’s TES system at night, the facility showed a net energy savings of 39%.

“Electricity costs are one of the top two expenses in the cold storage industry and this study demonstrates the value of using an intelligent Thermal Energy Storage system to reduce energy consumption in freezers,” said Corey Rosenbusch, President and CEO of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA). “Based on these results, our membership should evaluate this technology for their own low temperature applications.”

Energy Storage Company Elecyr Appoints Michael Kelly As President Of Jamaica Manufacturing Subsidiary



An unreliable electric grid, high electric costs and limited net metering make the Caribbean and Latin America the fastest growing market for energy storage.  As with the early adoption of cell phones in emerging countries, solar batteries are a natural fit with immediate benefits.

Michael Kelly, c., President of Elecyr Carib Ltd. in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

CaribPR Wire, DOVER NEW HAMPSHIRE, April 11, 2016: Elecyr Corporation has announced the appointment of Michael Kelly as President of Elecyr Carib Ltd. in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  The new subsidiary will manufacture Elecyr’s patent-pending energy storage systems for sale in Latin America and Europe.  Elecyr’s CEO Bill Southworth explains that, “As one of the most important container ports in the Americas and with an educated workforce that ideally suits our manufacturing, Jamaica was the logical choice to expand our business.”  It’s also one of the fastest growing markets for energy storage in its own right.

As the cost of solar energy storage continues to decline, it’s predicted that within a decade solar will be less expensive than just the cost of maintaining the wires for the electric grid.  Net-metering, or using the electric grid to store electric power from rooftop solar, will soon reach its limit everywhere as has already happened in Hawaii, Nevada and a dozen other states.  Advanced battery storage will be an essential part of the next wave of independent solar homes interconnected by microgrids.

Michael Kelly describes the appeal of Elecyr’s plug-and-play battery modules as “a natural for the Caribbean, where a customer can see a return on investment of less than two years on a product that will last decades.”

Elecyr Corporation is a leader in this new market for residential energy storage, along with Tesla and Sonnenbatterie.  However, Elecyr’s adoption of nanotechnology in its batteries provides a unique solution for safe and extremely long-life residential storage that’s expandable from the smallest Tiny House to a large condo complex or an entire village.

Con operaciones de ensamblaje en Jamaica, Elecyr alcanza mercado de almacenamiento de energía en Latinoamerica

Red eléctrica poco fiable, altos costos de electricidad y una medición neta limitada, hacen del Caribe y América Latina el mercado de mayor crecimiento para el almacenamiento de la energía solar. Al igual que con la rápida adopción de teléfonos celulares en los países emergentes, las baterías solares para los hogares son un ajuste natural con beneficios inmediatos.

CaribPR Wire, DOVER NEW HAMPSHIRE, Abril 11 del 2016 —Elecyr Corporation ha anunciado el nombramiento de Michael Kelly como presidente de Elecyr Carib Ltd, en Montego Bay, Jamaica. La nueva subsidiaria manufacturará el sistema de almacenamiento de energía con patente en trámite de Elecyr, para ventas en el Caribe, America Latina y Europa.  El presidente de Elecyr Bill Southworth explica: “Al ser uno de los   puertos más importantes en America y con una educada mano de obra, que idealmente se adapta a nuestro proceso de fabricación,  Jamaica fue la elección lógica para expandir nuestro negocio” Ademas de ser también uno de los mercados de más rápido crecimiento para el almacenamiento de energía.

En tanto el  costo de los paneles solares continúa bajando, se prevé que dentro de una década la energía solar será menos costosa que el costo de mantener los cables de la red eléctrica. El uso de la red eléctrica para almacenar la energía eléctrica a partir de energía solar en la azotea alcanzará su límite como ya ha sucedido en Hawai, Nevada y otros estados. Las avanzadas baterías para el almacenamiento de energía serán una parte esencial de la próxima ola de casas solares independientes, interconectadas por Microrredes.

Michael Kelly  describe el atractivo de las baterías de Elecyr listas para usar (plug-and-play) como “algo natural para el Caribe, donde un cliente puede ver un retorno de la inversión de menos de dos años en un producto que va a durar décadas .”

Elecyr Corporation es líder en este nuevo mercado del almacenamiento de energía residencial,  junto con Tesla y Sonnenbatterie.  Sin embargo, la adopción por parte de Elecyr de la nanotecnología en sus baterías  le permite ofrecer a los clientes una solución única, segura y muy duradera para el almacenamiento de energía residencial y que ademas es expansible y aplicable desde la casa más pequeña hasta un complejo de apartamentos de gran tamaño o la totalidad de un pueblo.

APR Energy has been serving UTE since 2012 through two power plants, located in La Plata and Punta del Tigre. The mobile gas turbine solution provides bridging power while a permanent generating facility is being constructed as well as much-needed reserve capacity as the region deals with diminished hydroelectric power output resulting from a prolonged drought.

“UTE has been an outstanding, long-term customer, and their decision to extend our projects five times is a reflection of the high quality of service we provide and the reliability of our technology,” said Chief Executive Officer Laurence Anderson. “The decision by UTE underscores the fact that our fast-track mobile solutions are an ideal source of interim power during construction of permanent infrastructure.”

APR Energy Renews 25MW Power Contract in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Two-year contract extension adds to record renewals

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – APR Energy plc (LSE: APR), a global leader in fast-track power solutions, today announces that it has signed a two-year extension for its 25MW contract in the U.S. Virgin Islands, to run through late Q4 of 2016. The extension adds to APR Energy’s record number of renewals for the year, driving a success rate of over 90%.

APR Energy assumed the contract with the U.S. Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) as part of its acquisition of GE’s power rental business in October 2013. The Group provides a turnkey bridging power solution to WAPA, supporting the utility’s strategic system improvements as it converts to liquefied propane gas (LPG), a lower cost fuel alternative. The GE TM2500 turbine provided by APR Energy gives WAPA additional fuel flexibility, including the ability to operate on the cheaper LPG fuel.

Tom Caldwell, APR Energy Managing Director, Americas, stated, “We are very excited that our bridging solution continues to play a key part of WAPA’s long-term plans as it makes its system-wide improvements. APR Energy appreciates the opportunity to continue our strong relationship with WAPA and are proud to support its efforts in providing lower cost solutions for the island’s ratepayers through our highly-efficient, mobile turbine technology.”
