Commercial Generator – KMB’s Master Disaster Plan

Power failures resulting from unpredictable weather, man-made or natural disasters or site-specific events can disrupt business operations. And in some cases, it could mean irreparable damage to a brand’s reputation. The longer the power outage, the more damaging it can be. Thankfully, businesses can keep current customers happy (and maybe snag a few from closed competitors) with a reliable disaster plan from KMB Company.

No matter the need, we have the vast experience, resources and technical skills required to meet them. KMB Company offers telecom design and build solutions from commercial generator installation to full turnkey deployment so businesses can protect their bottom line in any disaster.

Keep Your Business Powered Up in the Next Blackout with A Commercial Generator

Commercial generators are an integral part of the preparedness planning process for businesses of every size. Everyone knows that downtime is the enemy of any business; this fallback tool enables organizations to continue operating some (or all) of their electronic equipment, keep lights on, protect data and minimize business interruptions.

Keep Your Business Powered Up in the Next Blackout with a Commercial GeneratorOutages due to weather related reasons such as storms and severe weather, cold and ice, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. have doubled since 2003. And since the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows an increasing number of power outages over the last decade, this just proves how important it is for business owners to stay protected with a backup commercial generator.

Most commercial generators become a seamless part of the business, so much so that employees or customers may not even notice the switch from electrical power to generator power. That’s just what a generator is supposed to do – keep your business operating smoothly and seamlessly, no matter what’s going on outside.

Does Solar Power Work In A Power Outage?

One common misconception is that solar power will continue to work in the event of a power outage. Unless a business has an on-site solar battery storage system in addition to their solar PV system, solar power will actually not work during a grid failure.

One of the reasons that solar shuts down during a blackout is for safety reasons. After a major storm, the electricity company sends out local crews to fix the grid; these utility technicians need to know which power lines are active and which are not. If a PV installation is still sending solar electricity into the grid, these panels can create invisible “islands” of dangerous electricity.

Therefore, the automatic shut-down safety mechanism prevents islanding and keeps utility crews safe.

Preparation is the Best Defense Against Power Outages

Different industries have different needs when it comes to backup power. For example, health care applications are required to abide by strict regulations regarding patient safety, data centers provide the emergency power to keep servers online and restaurants rely on a standby commercial generator to keep food safe and business doors open.

Unfortunately, in today’s world of high reliance on electricity and power, it’s not will a power outage happen, it’s when.
