Power outages are constant threat when running a business, big or small. In order to prevent downtime in your business’ operation, especially during peak demand, business owners and operators should invest in portable commercial generators.

In businesses with tight production deadlines, it is imperative to be able to remain up-and-running despite unplanned outages. Deadlines must be met without interruption or delay. The effects can be devastating when an unexpected and prolonged power failure occurs. Power outages cause costly production delays and damage to credibility. Portable generators provide effective and immediate solutions to these critical situations.

It makes financial sense, especially for small businesses, businesses trying to infiltrate a market, or businesses with critical operations to consider portable generators. Contact South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA for more information.

For companies, a power outage can be catastrophic to sales goals. They disrupt operations and can cause damage to equipment. Worse, they almost always result in decreased profits. All business operations rely on electric power. Fortunately, there are backup portable generators that can be used for safe and effective temporary power solutions.

During unexpected events or planned maintenance generator rentals will keep business running during an outage. Companies have the option to purchase backup generators for contingency usage.

Power interruptions are an inconvenience when business managers are caught off-guard. For all types of businesses, the best way to deal with an unexpected power outage is a backup generator. Closing during an outage is not an option for companies with a large customer base so it is imperative to have portable generators in place.

Generators Provide Power During Winter Storms

Power outages can be very stressful for businesses, especially during the winter. Strong winds and heavy snowfalls uproot poles and damage power lines. Oftentimes, power cannot be immediately restored because of the extent of the damage. In these scenarios, companies should have generators in place for backup emergency power.

Portable generators are strategically engineered to function optimally even over extended use. In the situations when power outages extend for longer periods, portable generators provide the needed back-up power for businesses to keep operations up and running.

Businesses can keep refrigeration, theft prevention systems, heat, and servers running with back-up commercial generators during winter storms. For winter power you can depend on, contact South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA.

Winter Weather Generator Care FAQ

Fall is here and soon winter storms will bring strong, damaging winds, heavy snowfall, significant icing and coastal flooding. We've put together a list of FAQs to help homeowners ensure their KOHLER generators are ready for severe winter weather and impending power outages.

Q: Do I need to clear the snow from the intake and exhaust vents?

A: YES - It is essential for generator cooling. Permanent damage is possible if the unit overheats.

Q: How do I manually "power off" the generator set?

A: Open the generator hood or access door and flip the circuit breaker to the "off" position (you'll find the breaker near the digital controller). This shuts off power to the house (the load). It's a good idea to run the generator with no load for 2-5 minutes. Then press the "off" button on the controller.

Q: How long can my generator run before I need to check the oil?

A: We recommend checking the oil level after every 8-24 hours of operation, depending on the size and model of the generator. Oil change and filter change frequency and other routine maintenance varies per model, especially during periods of extended power outage. Check the Operation Manual included with your generator for a complete list of required maintenance procedures and schedules.

Q: How do I check the engine oil?

A: (1) Power off the generator and let the engine sit for two minutes to settle the oil. Pull the dipstick from the back of the engine and wipe with a clean rag. Insert the dipstick back into the dipstick tube and pull it out. Note the crosshatching on the end of the dipstick, from "F" (Full) to "L" (Low), and see where the oil level falls. Add oil if the dipstick indicates that the oil level is low. (See What type of oil should I use in my generator?)

(2) Locate the yellow oil-access cap on the front of the engine (look for the oil can icon). Add a few ounces of oil, then recheck the oil level by inserting and removing the dipstick. Add oil until the level is near "F." Do not overfill the engine.

(3) When you're finished adding oil, make sure the dipstick and oil access cap are securely in place. Push the AUTO button to place the generator back in standby mode. If the utility power is still out, the generator will start within three seconds. After the generator starts, move the circuit breaker to the ON position so the generator is now supplying power to the house.
