5 Reasons You May Need a Generator

Electricity powers almost everything in the modern world including computers, lights, and the HVAC system in your facility. When the power goes out, every minute without power is lost money. Lee Contracting can minimize your downtime with our rental generator fleet or with the installation of a permanent transfer switch. Sometimes you will know when you will need generator power, and other times you will be surprised with a power outage. Below are five scenarios in which you may need generator power.

  1. WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT

Every now and then the power between the municipal source and your facility may be affected. Maybe a line blew down in a storm or an old tree branch fell on the line. These types of scenarios are unforeseeable and uncontrollable. Having a backup generator will help to minimize your facility’s downtime.

  1. WHEN YOU NEED MORE POWER

Sometimes, during certain times of year, you may require more power than usual. When this happens, a standby generator can help to boost your power supply and provide the extra electricity needed for your processes or events.

  1. WHEN THE GRID NEEDS MORE POWER

If your facility is in an area that has rolling black or brownouts, a backup generator could help you to survive these downtimes without sacrificing production during these temporary power outages.

REPAIRING YOUR SUBSTATION

  1. WHILE REPAIRING YOUR SUBSTATION

Your company’s internal substation and electrical equipment needs maintenance and upgrades like any other piece of equipment. If you can’t afford to shut down during repair times a temporary power solution is the perfect answer. When your substation is down for repairs, a rental generator can keep your business up and running.

  1. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

The above reasons are just some of the most common reasons as to why you might need a rental generator. The last thing your business needs is to find itself in the dark, losing money without a plan. Make sure you know where and how to get an emergency rental generator before an emergency occurs.

Being Prepared for Unexpected Power Outages

March’s windstorm reminded everyone that power outages can happen when you least expect it. Chances are your home or business were part of the more than 800,000 people who were affected by the windstorm. Power outages often mean lost production time which results in lost revenue for your business. With Lee Contracting just a phone call away you don’t have to worry about unexpected downtime again.

 

Lee Contracting can help you prevent unexpected downtime through the installation of a manual power switch. This switch is a permanent generator hook-up which allows for reduced generator set-up time and a cost savings for your company. We handle every aspect of the installation process, from the electrical hook ups to the installation of a concrete slab on which the generator sits.

 

We also have generators ready for you to rent. With up to 2075kW of generator capacity available, we have the ability to power all of your systems. We also have two generators which can run in tandem, creating a 1000kW generator.
