With blackouts and power outages occurring more frequently, Generac Generators provide power and peace of mind to homeowners requiring uninterrupted electricity for heating, cooling, refrigeration, and medical needs. As the country’s electrical grid continues to age, the risk of extended power outages and the need for backup generators goes up as well. Unfortunately, the age of the power grid isn’t the only factor causing outages which saw lengths of up to three weeks in certain areas of the country last year.
Other issues causing power outages include:
* Budgetary constraints at the utilities which have led to infrequent tree trimming, even when the trees pose an imminent risk to power lines
* Budgets also play a role where power lines cross overgrown farmlands. In this case, the utilities are often forbidden from trimming the trees and the owners of the land simply can’t afford to pay for it themselves
* Electrical demand is rising to a point where supply often can’t keep up with demand. These situations aren’t limited to severe winter weather as demands for cooling during hot summer months can lead to over taxed grids resulting in blackouts and brownouts.
Extended power outages can prove to be costly in terms of lost food in refrigerators or freezers as well as in lost work that cannot be performed without electricity. Long power outages are also dangerous in times of extreme cold, heat, and situations where people rely on medical equipment such as oxygenators for their well-being. Once considered a luxury, generators are becoming a necessity, especially in areas where outages and blackouts are common.
Generac Generators provide solutions to these problems with a full line of generators that switch on within seconds of a power outage. Once an outage is detected, Generac Generators disconnect the utility power feed, switch on, and start delivering power within seconds.
Generac Generators come in a variety of sizes and power output capacities to meet the exact needs of any user. For lower power generation needs, Generac offers portable generators for both home and recreational uses. For situations where losing power isn’t an option, Generac offers “whole house” generators which are rated up to 20kW. These generators can cover the power needs of an entire home or small business and are considered to be among the most powerful generators on the market today.
