Your Business Needs Backup Power
No power = no sales. When it comes to running a business, loss of power for any amount of time can be catastrophic. The US Dept of Energy reports that power outages cost businesses $80 billion per year. Your business needs to be prepared for short-term power outages or natural disasters which may cause loss of precious information, materials, and revenue. Eau Gallie Electric has been trusted by business owners throughout Florida to ensure that loss of power is never an issue for their company. We provide complete backup power solutions, including designing, building and installing a commercial generator that best meets your needs.Tell us about your needs
Benefits of Commercial Generators
A commercial generator keeps the power on, with no interruption. That means you can continue to operate your business as if nothing happened. That’s important, especially for hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, public utilities, and government offices which must ensure continuous operations during a power outage.
No disruption in power means that your computers, servers, medical equipment, air conditioning, lights, and security systems have zero downtime. Critical aspects of your operation will continue functioning, and you won’t have to deal with the stress of relying on utility companies to make repairs.
What is a Commercial Generator?
A commercial standby generator is considered the gold standard of backup power sources. They start up automatically during a power outage to keep power flowing to your building and shut off when the utility power returns. They require no user input, most units run self-maintenance checks, and they are installed outside the building to minimize any potential risk.
Standby generators are very scalable depending on your needs. They can be installed at small and large businesses as well as construction sites. They can be used to power only essential equipment, or they can power the entire building. They are connected directly to the premises wiring during installation, so you don’t need an electrician on-hand every time you need some backup power. With a standby generator, you get reliable and efficient power that is totally hands off.
Types of Commercial Backup Systems
You need the appropriate level of backup power. A big building or large operation doesn’t always mean a big generator. Our team of master commercial electricians and engineers will evaluate your business needs and select the most appropriate backup power solutions. By ensuring your crucial business operations are protected, your business may continue to operate without interruption. When you choose Eau Gallie Electric, we guarantee to only provide your business with the equipment that is absolutely necessary for your business.
Generators typically take 10 seconds or less to restore power to your facility. But if that is too long, we are experts at specifying and installing UPS systems to pair with your generator. Batteries or flywheel stored energy systems can power the UPS. The UPS only needs enough runtime to allow the generator to come up to speed and carry the backup load. We see industrial processes that cannot endure even a fraction of a second of a power outage. This is no problem at all with a properly designed and installed system. Traditionally, people think of UPS systems containing expensive batteries, but flywheel systems (basically a heavy spinning weight on magnetic bearings) are becoming much more popular because of their small footprint and low maintenance costs. The UPS system becomes much less expensive when paired with a generator because it only needs a very short run time, just enough to allow the generator to come up to speed. The generator can then be powered by diesel, propane, or natural gas and run for a very long time.
Eau Gallie’s Backup Generator Solutions for Business
When choosing a commercial standby generator, you have to think about things like what you need to supply power to, what your fuel requirements are, and where you’ll place the generator. That’s before you even get to all of the local and federal regulations surrounding commercial standby generators. These aren’t simple questions but we have the answers.
Eau Gallie Electric will get to work on meeting your building’s backup power needs right away. We have decades of experience installing generators across all sectors, public and private.
Designed, Built and Installed to Your Specifications
It takes an experienced professional engineer to understand the power needs of your building and commercial operations. Baseline electrical usage, as well as data on times of peak power usage, are necessary when determining a building’s power needs. Additionally, the building’s wiring and circuit paths have to be understood to determine the correct power requirements for your business.
You need an electrical engineer who will design, build, and install a commercial backup generator to your building’s exact specifications.
