What’s a Commercial Generator? - Wareham, Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 20, 2019
South Shore Generator - KOLHER Industrial Generator

A standby commercial generator keeps your power on and your business open during an outage. It’s installed outside your business (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re open or closed. All within seconds of a power outage.

Plus commercial generators run on propane or natural gas, so there’s no refueling.

Power It All

KOHLER generators can power your entire business.

Industrial Fridge/Freezer

If you’re a restaurant or convenience store, your food is everything. If it doesn’t stay cool, you don’t either. Our philosophy: fresh is always best.

Security Systems

Your security system protects your business. We protect your security system. That’s what we like to call good-old fashioned peace of mind.

Computers

Revenue records, inventory numbers, employee information — all your important files live here. We safeguard them from erratic power and keep you connected to the world.

Gas Pump

Guess what? When the power goes out everywhere else, you’ll be the only convenience store pumping gas. Your customers are going to like that. A lot.

Heat/AC

Whether it’s the dead of winter or dog days of summer, your HVAC is what keeps your employees and customers comfy and your building protected. And a happy customer is a loyal customer.

Lights

Let there be light. That’s our philosophy any way. Come hurricane, hail or ice storm, your business will still be sunny inside.

Towable

  • Designed for powering remote locations, sporting events and concerts
  • Manual power transfer once generator is on site (building requires pre-wired generator connection panel)
  • Can power critical hard-wired systems like A/C, heat, computers, security systems, refrigerators and freezers with generator connection panel
  • Runs on diesel fuel

Commercial

  • Ideal for backing up your business
  • Automatically restores power in seconds - whether you're open or closed
  • Powers your business, including critical hard-wired systems like A/C, heat, computers, security systems, refrigerators, freezers, and more
  • No refueling - runs on your small business's natural or LP gas

Who needs one?

Today backup power is important for every small business owner.

These are just a few of the benefits:

  • Protects your revenue stream and your inventory during an outage
  • Keeps the lights, AC and heat on
  • Powers your communications, computers and security system
  • Keeps your customers coming back and encourages new customers to count on you

Power Outage Leaves Airport in the Dark

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 07, 2019
South Shore Generators - Back Up Power for Data Centers

A spectacular light show caused by an electrical emergency in Queens created moments of panic for some at LaGuardia Airport Thursday night.

Airline passengers were left in the dark inside the transit hub’s terminals, but why? 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 left many wondering how an airport the size of LaGuardia, in a city the size of New York, shut down from a mere 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 over the holiday.

Nearby, Rikers Island prison reported no sustained power outage thanks to 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,” Cuomo said.

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

“It’s very concerning,” she admitted regarding the temporary terminal outages. “We don’t want people in the dark.”

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.

Generac Commercial Generators Keep Your Business Running

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 23, 2018

No power. No customers. No revenue.

Every year, more than two million U.S. businesses experience a power outage lasting eight hours or more. Because this statistic is so powerful, it pays to understand how much a power outage will cost your business.

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that on average, power outages cost $80 billion per year, and that 98 percent of those losses come from the business sector.

Financially speaking, power outages can cause substantial losses for the company affected. For example, according to the US Department of Energy, when a power failure disrupts IT systems…

  • 33% of companies lose $20,000–$500,000
  • 20% lose $500,000 to $2 million
  • 15% lose more than $2 million

Are you at risk?

Lost revenue is only part of the story. Consider direct costs, intangible losses and how essential your products and services are during a power outage.

  • Security systems become disabled, increasing the risk of theft
  • Refrigerated goods spoil
  • Employees are idled
  • Interrupting manufacturing processes can cause long-term damage to equipment and product
  • Computer systems go down and vital data is lost

Keep the lights on and the doors open

Many businesses have a lot to offer customers during power outages. In addition to making revenue loss less likely, keeping the doors open can provide important customer benefits.

Convenience store / Gas station — Power lights, cash register, security system, refrigeration and fuel pumps to serve emergency workers, motorists evacuating the area and local clean-up efforts.

High-volume restaurant — Power lights, cash register, refrigeration, a full kitchen and remain open during an outage, serving people who need to eat out during the power failure.

Office environment — Power lights, computers, telephone and elevators. Keep sales coming in and customer service available.

Pharmacy — Power lights, refrigeration, computers/data systems, security system, cash register, and telephone to ensure customers can get medication and medical supplies during an emergency.

Generac. A sound business decision

As the world’s number one manufacturer of home standby systems, Generac identified and responded to the need for affordable, higher kW units for small to mid-size businesses and larger residences. Generac’s innovative engineering has eliminated the noise, cost, and environmental issues that once made standby power impractical for these applications. Powered by liquid-cooled engines, these units offer the opportunity to add features and options to address individual applications, such as advanced controls for instant monitoring, without the cost of more expensive configured systems.

Tough. Reliable. Purpose-Built.

Generators are often required to run for hours, days or even weeks at a time. Continuous use can cause a lot of strain on engines not specifically engineered to withstand extended run times. We have developed robust engine solutions to ensure our generators provide the reliability necessary to power through even the most demanding situations.
