Emergency Power Preparedness for Winter

As we watch the snow fall, and we've watched it fall a few times already this month, we urge all Boston area business owners to remember that our winters can be long and harsh seasons; and winter has not even officially begun.

Winter begins next week and it can last for 5 months! It is always wise for area business owners to periodically review their disaster preparation plans to be sure they are prepared for the worst. Now is the time to strategically plan your back up power generation contingency plans for the upcoming winter.

When winter storms strike, businesses need a pre-planned and rapid response source of emergency power generation. South Shore Generator serves that business need. Our generators are trusted to serve businesses with commercial refrigeration, data centers, office space heating and cooling, construction lighting, and a host of other commercial services. Contact us.

For more details about rental power, spot cooling, and spot heating contingency planning and delivery services throughout the greater Boston area, contact South Shore Generators.

Power Outage Leaves LaGuardia without Power Last Winter

Remember last January? A spectacular light show caused by an electrical emergency in Queens created panic at LaGuardia Airport.

Airline passengers were left in the dark inside the transit hub’s terminals. Runways were also temporarily shuttered following the Con Edison voltage monitor malfunction which illuminated the New York skyline with an eerie blue-green hue.

The 13 minute power outage delayed some 15 flights from taking off for up to an hour and rerouted nine planes to other airports.

It makes you wonder how an airport the size of LaGuardia, in a city the size of New York, could be shut down from a power outage? Shouldn’t there be an uninterrupted source of power on backup to keep the airport running right away?

“A power outage of this nature could happen at any airport,” LaGuardia General Manager Lysa Scully said.

But thousands of people were taken off guard.

Nearby, Rikers Island prison had no sustained power outage because of its backup system.

LaGuardia has backup power, but it’s basically emergency backup power and not really a backup system that would allow the LaGuardia Airport to operate safely.

The runways were closed for 13 minutes as a precaution to make sure everything was safe.

LaGuardia went through a rebuilding, but no backup power system was installed. So what’s the plan going forward to prevent what happened last week from happening again?

“Having LaGuardia backup generators that allowed LaGuardia to function is something that we’re going to further explore,” the governor said.

Portable Generators for Construction Sites

Commercial portable generators provide affordable power solutions to commercial and residential construction sites. Backup power solutions minimize a builder’s cost by keeping projects running on schedule. When looking for the right temporary power solution for your job site it is important to fully understand all factors.

Here are some key tips to make that happen:

Work closely with your Generator retailer: They will help you determine the right portable generator unit for your job site or application. When you become familiar with your dealer and process, it will be a smooth and efficient process for each and every different job site.

Secure required permits and schedule inspections to prevent work stoppage. Make sure your dealer is knowledgeable about your local building codes and regulations. The process for obtaining permits and scheduling inspections will be expedited when you build rapport with local inspectors and learn the particulars of using temporary power solutions in your area.

Only allow experienced and certified technicians set-up and remove portable generator. Although the task is often taken for granted, it's critical to have certified personnel who are well versed in determining appropriate pole locations, assessing ground status, underground utility definition, and one who can configure your often times complex electrical distribution system. This ensures the safety and efficiency of your power network.
