As a result, some find diesel generators to be the comfortable choice. Yet, Generac created options, and engineers began to switch. “The difference we are starting to see is due to the new complexities caused by low-sulfur diesel fuel.

Food service and grocery store companies are highly energy-dependent to ensure the freshness and safety of their products. Temperatures in freezers and refrigeration units must meet certain levels or the food can no longer be offered to customers. Even brief outages could result in significant financial losses.

A family-owned company, Festival Foods, was founded in 1946. They operate more than 20 stores and employ more than 5,000 people throughout Wisconsin. The company is unique in that they have a mission to deliver more than groceries. From the website, “Festival Foods will be Wisconsin's leading and most innovative grocer. We will consistently deliver the best shopping experience, be the best place to work, and make a positive impact in the communities we serve.”
