A portable diesel generator provides an ideal solution to a variety of situations. Portable generators range from smaller tow-able 15kw generators to forty-ffoot ISO contained 2000kw generators. Most commonly these portable diesel generators are used in places that do not have access to the power grid or as an emergency unit when the grid fails.

Generator 101

Electricity and power is a common day necessity. For some people who live off grid, they use solar panels that gather electricity in a unit which then can be used for later. For those that don’t have the luxury or affordability of solar panels, they rely on portable generators. Generators serve as an emergency power outlet or maybe as the main power source when other resources are not available. 

One thing to keep in mind is that generators can be very dangerous when handling. You can get electrocuted if you do not know what you’re doing. You can also accidentally spark up an electrical line.

Always read the instructions upon your purchase of a generator.

Emergency Backup Power

Renting an emergency generator during a natural disaster or other power outage can be a challenging, if not an overwhelming undertaking. When a widespread power outage occurs, rental generators become scarce very quickly.

If you look at the statistical data on the number of businesses that lost power during any of the recent hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc., they numbered in the tens of thousands. Businesses that had an emergency power plan, experienced a dramatically reduced impact to their operations, revenue and profit. 

Preparation is the key to insure your business can secure the rental power, when and where you need it.

Emergency Generator Testing

Standby generators represent a sizable capital investment. If the standby generator fails when called into action it is almost always accompanied by potentially dangerous conditions and/or risk of significant financial loss. Yearly load bank testing is an important element of any preventative maintenance program to ensure your standby generator is capable of carrying building loads when required to.

If the generator operates as an emergency standby generator for fire/life safety, it is regulated by NFPA 70, 99, 110 (Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems), and The Joint Commission standards, which has specific load banking requirements depending on the type of facility.



Cheap Energy & The Future of Nuclear Power

    (Provided by Steven Nameroff - Tuesday, December 13, 2016)

The Economist, in 2007, reported that “America’s nuclear industry is about to embark on its biggest expansion in more than a generation. This will influence energy policy in the rest of the world”. It predicted that safety, management and regulatory types improvements would lead up to an “atomic renaissance” for  a nuclear energy industry crippled for years by the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl accidents.

Many countries were growing rapidly and increasing their demand for electricity. The nuclear industry had anticipated that this growth would force countries to revisit nuclear energy which had shown marked improvement.

Contrary to this anticipation, the amount of nuclear power generated electricity has seen a decline. Plants have been retired for nuclear power in the United States and other countries with the actual capability of assisting the power grid because of economic reasons. Smaller countries have scaled back their nuclear power efforts also.
