Why rent a generator?
There are 3 main reasons you might be wondering if you can rent a generator:
- You have no other power supply available.
- There is insufficient power supply from the commercial supplier to meet the required amount.
- An alternate source of electrical power or emergency power is required due to loss of mains power.
An unexpected loss of power can have a big impact on businesses. Such power losses can seriously affect different organisations:
- Hospitals – a loss of patient monitoring and/ or life support.
- Data Centres – a loss in data processing and some data.
- Offices and accommodation buildings – a loss in power, lighting and lifts.
- Manufacturing plants – loss of production, raw material and/or products
What type and size of generator do I need?
Rental generators are available in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. They come with many different attachments and devices, which makes them operate as an entire electrical supply system. Finding the right generator for rent starts with the basics of knowing what electrical capacity you require. Also, you will need to know where the generator will be located, what fuel it will need, and how long you will need it.
