Temporary Power Poles or Rental Generator is a decision that comes up often when starting a new construction project. Determining which method of temporary power would be cost effective is not always obvious, and managers occasionally struggle making that decision.
Some managers are more comfortable and experienced with temporary power poles and other times they weighed toward rental generators without considering all the costs associated with each option.
The diesel power generator
itself is fairly inexpensive,
The assumption that is made is that the operational price increase will stay consistent with the increase in unit rental rate. However, it will multiply exponentially due to the amount a larger rental generator will consume in diesel fuel and quantity of petroleum products and filters required for maintenance. Also, as you move up in size your electric power distribution cords and labor to install also increase
When thinking about temporary power or electric power distribution often time we find managers making a round hole, square peg assessment.
While temporary power from the utility is an affordable choice when it comes to sourcing power it
• Amount of Rental Power Required
• Distance to the project from the source
• Type of source
• Duration or length of time the power is needed
• Voltage requirements: Single, Three Phase or Both.
There are a lot of costs to consider in making the decision for temporary power service. The best way to decide it to call a professional company that offers both services and have them quote your project on the Rental Power factors above and have them explain the services in total for the duration of the project.
