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.

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.”

Nor Joaquin, Patricia or Katrina can stop the continuity of a business or government service, according to Generac

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The devastating presence of Joaquín in the Bahamas reminds us that nothing and no one is exempt from suffering a drubbing of nature and that we also cannot avoid it; from the common citizen whose housing can be destroyed by a natural phenomenon to the hotel chains with large tourist complexes, nor much less our governments, which even with a strategy of intelligence and security, can only prevent further damage and take actions to mitigate the impact. Against the force of nature, who can stand up to it?

The urgent need for immediate power supply, either due to the deficiency of existing supplies, a failure in a power station, a natural disaster or any unforeseen catastrophe, can be satisfied by means of portable power generators.

According to Generac, leading designer and manufacturer of backup systems in continuous energy operation, mobile products and power tools, here are some of its main benefits:

  • Mobile generators are built to last and excel in extreme conditions, which make them invaluable for emergency response situations, construction sites, road equipment, field bases and other applications that require a reliable mobile power supply.
  • It is about efficient solutions for a rapid capability application, since its modular design has been conceived for a fast mobilization and ramp up.
  • There are residential, commercial and industrial product lines, allowing for an affordable solution for all types of businesses or residences. For businesses that do not want to make the investment, a portable solution designed for temporal use can also be offered.
  • For the Government sector, specifically, it is very important to maintain the continuity of operations. By having a backup generator for emergency use, services such as police and fire stations can guarantee uninterrupted service to the population.
