Generac’s broad array of standby power systems, especially Generac Modular Power Systems (MPS), and our Accredited Tier Designers can ensure your center’s data is safe, whether your mission is global hybrid hosting, colocation, cloud hosting, dedicated hosting, managed hosting, or disaster recovery and business continuance services.

BACKUP POWER FOR EDUCATION

According to the National Science Foundation, U.S. universities spent more than $65 billion on research and development in 2011†. A power outage could result in millions of dollars and years of research lost to an academic institution. During Hurricane Sandy, New York University lost thousands of laboratory animals and years of research when the power failed‡. Protect your valuable research, labs, and equipment against powerful storms and power outages with a Generac standby power system.

Gas & Convenience

Generac standby generators keep you from losing refrigerated or frozen inventory. And help you get an edge on your competition by being open during a power outage.

$25,000: Revenue lost for a day of downtime for a gas station or convenience store

And Perhaps Lost Customers, Too

With nearly 150,000 convenience stores across the country, you face some stiff competition. If you’re not open during a power outage, your customers will find someone who is.

More Than Lost Fuel Sales

Convenience store customers turn to you not only for fuel, but for coffee (76% of hot beverage sales across the industry), beer (30% of all beer sales nationwide), and on-site prepared foods.

commercial-3

No Power Means No Pumps

About a third of your sales can be attributed to fuel. But without power, the pumps won’t work. And you’ll also lose refrigerated and prepared food sales.


Grocery

Protect valuable inventory against spoilage during an extended outage with a Generac standby power system.

2 HOURS: ALL THE TIME IT TAKES FOR PRODUCE, PREPARED FOODS, AND MEAT TO PERISH. BACKUP POWER FOR GROCERY STORES & SUPERMARKETS

Supermarkets are among the most energy-intensive commercial buildings. Refrigeration alone accounts for about half of a supermarket’s total energy consumption. And ever more supermarkets are adding in-store food service for customers. Not only do grocery stores stand to lose valuable inventory and prepared food during a power outage, but they could also lose customers wanting to buy food and other supplies. Keep your grocery store open for business during a power outage – and gain a competitive advantage – with a Generac standby power system.

Stay Open When Customers Need You Most

Consumers like to stock up on essentials before and during the major storms that can knock out utility power. Give them another reason for them to rely on you by being open for business during an outage.

Retain Your Competitive Edge

More supermarkets and grocery stores are offering food service as a way to compete in the marketplace. Not only do you lose your competitive edge during an outage, but you can lose valuable prepared food inventory.

grocery-3

An Outage Doesn’t Need to Be Long to Be a Disaster

All of the deli foods, fresh produce, and meat that make your store the go-to destination for shoppers won’t last long when the power goes out. That’s a lot of revenue to have to throw away.


Healthcare

Power failures are not an option in legally mandated life safety applications. Generac can help you design and implement a standby power solution that will keep patients happy and healthy.

healthcare

BACKUP POWER FOR HEALTHCARE

There are many ways to build reliability into a backup power system, from fuel choice to generator configuration. Generac not only has the breadth of product and fuel choices necessary to help you configure the right standby power system for your application, but also the expertise needed to help ensure your system complies with NFPA 99, NFPA 110, and other appropriate national and local regulations.

$1.8 BILLION: RESTAURANT INDUSTRY SALES ON A TYPICAL DAY
BACKUP POWER FOR RESTAURANTS

For the restaurant industry, losses due to power outages are often permanent. After all, if a person misses dinner at your restaurant today, they won’t eat two dinners tomorrow. And there’s the losses you could face in terms of spoiled food and wine. From transfer switches that can allow you to be “generator ready” in case of a power outage to permanently installed standby generators that start automatically when the power fails, Generac can help you protect your business against loss in a power outage.

No Such Thing as Two Lunches

While many businesses can compensate for a power outage by selling more when the power returns, your customers won’t eat two meals today to replace the one they missed yesterday.

health-2

From Fresh to Foul – Fast

Most restaurant patrons expect fresh ingredients. Without power for refrigeration, your ingredients won’t stay fresh for very long—only a couple of hours.

health-3

Fresh Beef is Refrigerated Beef

According to the USDA, fresh beef can be refrigerated at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or less for three to five days. During a power outage, a refrigerator can quickly exceed that temperature, resulting in expensive wasted meat.


Manufacturing & Warehouse

Downtime means lost revenues. And the longer the power outage, the more damaging to your bottom line. Protect your business with a Generac standby power system.

warehouse

BACKUP POWER FOR MANUFACTURING & WAREHOUSING

Choose the Generac standby power system that meets your specific needs, and avoid costly business interruptions due to power outages.


Municipal & Government

Police, fire, and 911 call centers can’t afford to be without power when an emergency strikes. Protect your emergency management infrastructure with Generac standby power.

municipal

BACKUP POWER FOR MUNICIPALITIES & GOVERNMENT

Citizens depend upon emergency services in the wake of a severe storm. Police, fire, and 911 call centers can’t afford to be without power, even if the rest of the community is. In a severe disaster, you’ll need power for municipal buildings to establish shelters and command centers. Protect your emergency management infrastructure with Generac standby power.


Office & Banking
