Why Choose a Natural Gas Generator for Your Business

Why Choose a Natural Gas Generator for Your Business

Power is paramount. Without it, your lights, equipment, and machinery shut down, and your business sits idle until the power is restored. Whether you operate a grocery store, restaurant, barbershop, auto repair shop, or other business, the one universal requirement across all industries is reliable electricity. With power grid failures becoming increasingly common and blackouts and brownouts a distinct possibility, investing in a natural gas generator is like purchasing an insurance policy for the consistent and reliable operation of the equipment that keeps your business up and running.

Benefits of a Natural Gas Generator

One of the primary benefits of natural gas generators is that they can be connected directly to the gas line. This means there is no need to invest in fuel storage tanks and facilities or maintain them. Further, because natural gas is readily available and relatively stable in price, it is a cost-effective fuel source that you can depend on in many situations.

Natural gas is incredibly efficient and will provide significant efficiency within your standby generator systems. It is also one of the cleanest burning fuels, which means that using your generator won’t significantly increase your carbon footprint. Finally, natural gas generators are common in the United States. This means that there is a ready supply of replacement components available, which means that any problems that emerge can be quickly repaired and your system restored to operation.

Ultimately, these benefits equate to reliability; specifically, you can rely on these benefits to keep your business open so that you can continue serving the needs of your clients and delivering the goods and services they require.

Installing a Natural Gas Generator

Sizing your generator is the first step our certified generator technicians will help you complete. We will help you perform a thorough load calculation to determine the power needs of your critical systems. This is crucial because it won’t deliver the electricity you require if your system is undersized. Conversely, if it is too large, you won’t enjoy cost-efficient operation. In both undersized and oversized situations, you could end up damaging your system and significantly shortening the expected lifespan of the generator.

Once the generator is selected, we will thoroughly prepare the installation site and complete a comprehensive list of procedures to ensure proper installation. This includes ensuring all gas and electrical connections are properly tightened and secured, ensuring the generator’s foundation is sufficient for the unit’s weight and confirming that the generator has sufficient ventilation. From start to finish, we will ensure that the installation complies with all applicable building and regulatory codes related to your industry.
