Bi-Fuel Generators for Businesses

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 27, 2020
South Shore Generators - Wareham, Boston, MA

Bi-Fuel generators combine the power of diesel fuel with the longevity of natural gas. They meet the NEC and NFPA code requirements for on-site fuel storage while providing the reliability of natural gas flow during a crisis or extreme weather event. Should natural gas not be available, bi-fuel generators can run on diesel fuel alone. By offering fully integrated solutions that are the only EPA-compliant bi-fuel generators available straight from the factory, Generac is able to provide dependable solutions with flexible fueling options to meet the needs of various backup power applications.

Inventive Bi-Fuel: The Ideal Combination of Diesel Power and the Longer Running Times of Natural Gas

Severe Weather. Human Error. Power Grid Vulnerability. Any one of these could leave thousands, even millions without power for days, sometimes weeks. You wisely installed a backup power system. If that system is based solely on diesel fuel, your power only stays on while the fuel lasts. With roads blocked and fuel being allocated solely to the most critical locations, your business could soon be plunged into the dark, waiting for power to be restored.

The solution is a Generac BI-FUEL™ generator. These inventive generators start on diesel fuel and add natural gas as load is applied, until the unit runs primarily on natural gas--offering dual fuel reliability. Statistics prove that natural gas lines are rarely affected during major disasters, so our BI-FUEL™ generators offer a continuous and reliable source of fuel, when you need it most.

BI-FUEL™ engines have been used in industrial applications for decades. However, the majority of those applications are third party, after-market conversions performed in the field. Generac offers fully integrated solutions that are the only EPA-compliant generators straight from the factory.

Reasons Businesses Should Have a Standby Generator

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 20, 2020
South Shore Generator - Wareham, MA

Maintain Customer Contact – While other businesses in your area may be unable to open because they do not have generators, you’ll be able to maintain contact with customers throughout the storm. Depending on your business, being able to have contact with your customers during a power outage is an invaluable service.

Lighting and Security – The inclusion of a transfer switch on a standby generator means that as soon as your business looses power, the switch senses that loss and is prompted. Once the generator kicks in, your business can continue to run lighting and security systems, which help to keep your business safe from looters.

Electronic Data – Computers are vulnerable to power outages. In the event of a major storm, data stored on hard drives that you, your employees and your business rely on could be lost.

Income – Losing power could force your business to stay closed, meaning you could lose thousands of dollars for every day you’re not open. A generator is a reliable source of backup power that enables your business to stay open, and allows your customers to stay connected.

Connection – Ensure your business is connected and can still operate during a power outage, including sending emails, faxes, making calls and using the internet. Being able to keep the power on enables your employees to have no downtime.

Always There – Standby generators are permanently installed at your building so they’re always ready for a power failure. Fueled by propane or natural gas, a standby generator is also connected to the building’s power grid by an electrician.

Know What Has Power – Another benefit to a standby generator is that you can choose which pieces of equipment or sections of the building will receive power. The building can be separated into electrical zones ensuring you receive power where you need it most.

Safer Than a Portable Generator – For a cleaner, more efficient option a standby generator is a safer alternative to a portable, gasoline-powered unit.

Sensor Based Activation – When the main power supply cuts out, the monitoring system on a standby generator engages the activation switch. Once the power is restored, the generator will shut down.

Choose the Size that Suits Your Business – Depending on your size, every business has unique power supply needs and demands. Take into account the amount of equipment, computers and buildings that you’ll need to power in the event of an outage and make sure your standby generator is sufficient.

Power is reliable, most of the time. However, "most of the time" isn’t "all of the time". A commercial generator makes good sense for your business. Before you invest in any kind of standby generator for your business, consider these features and talk with South Shore Generator about your options. Expect the unexpected, prepare for the unknown, and be ready for it always, with a generator.

A Commercial Generator Keeps Your Business Open

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 24, 2020
South Shore Generator in Wareham, MA

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. Take a look.

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. Difference Between Towable and Commercial

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

Portable Battery-Operated Generators for a Cleaner Option – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 26, 2016

Portable power has been the domain of gas generators for decades, but battery-powered generators are starting to pop up, offering a cleaner option for DIYers, campers, and tailgaters.

A gas generator can keep chugging along as long as you have fuel, which makes it a better solution if you are without power for an extended period of time. But battery-powered generators have a whole host of cool tricks up their sleeves: indoor use, silent operation, easy 120V AC charging, clean power, and zero emissions.

Kohler has been in the generator business for over 80 years, and has just introduced its first battery-powered, indoor/outdoor generator solution, the enCube generator. The enCube delivers 1400 watts of continuous power and 1200 watt hours, that's enough to power your corded tools or keep your batteries charged. It has built-in GFCI, which prevents overloading and overheating the generator or your tools. There are onboard USB ports to charge smartphones, 12V DC ports for medium-sized gadgets, and multiple 120V AC outlets for larger electronics and appliances.

You can charge this unit from any standard 120V AC wall outlet or any solar panel, which makes it useful for travelers and all day tailgaters. Multiple units can be run parallel for even more runtime.

When it comes to emergency preparedness, it's still tough to recommend anything other than gas-powered backups, but for the casual user who needs portable power for camping or tailgating, these new battery-powered generators just might be worth it.

For more information on portable generators, contact South Shore Generator.
