PREPARE FOR EXTREME WEATHER NOW
TOP 4 FACTORS FOR CHOOSING A BACKUP POWER SOLUTION
Extreme weather such as wildfires, hurricanes, tornados, and winter storms are becoming more and more common across the United States. These events cause billions of dollars of damage each year. In addition to the physical devastation, businesses incur millions of dollars in lost revenue from outages. Your business cannot afford to wait until a weather event is imminent to create an electricity contingency plan.
Preparing your business for power loss during extreme weather is crucial. An onsite, highly resilient microgrid can ensure your business has an uninterrupted supply of power. But not all backup power generation is created equal. When evaluating microgrids, consider the following.
CONSIDER ELECTRICAL RESILIENCY-AS-A-SERVICE
Today, full-facility backup is achievable and affordable. Ensure your backup solution provides utility-grade, long duration power that can keep your entire site powered.
EVALUATE YOUR FUEL OPTIONS
Outages can last days or weeks. Consider the fuel supply chain as a part of your disaster planning. Diesel needs to be refueled via truck,a battery’s storage capacity is typically up to four hours and solar may not be readily available with cloud cover. In contrast, natural gas is readily available through underground infrastructure.
OPT FOR A WORRY-FREE SERVICE
Operating and maintaining a reliable electrical resiliency solution can be costly and time-consuming. Consider leaving the backup power operations to a trusted resiliency partner who will maintain your microgrid infrastructure so it ready when needed.
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR POWER RESILIENCY
An onsite electrical resiliency-as-a-service solution mitigates the risk of an outage and allows you to proactively make the decision to operate off the grid in island mode.
