There are many reasons why a business needs a standby generator. The bottom line is, when power gets knocked in during a storm, you want to stay open. A Generac generator can help you. There are a number of reasons a business might consider backup power and things that are important to them. These include:
What is backup power worth to a business? Every hour without power is an hour without sales. Some types of businesses could recoup the cost of a generator in less than a day!
*Does not include the cost of lost inventory and equipment/property damage
Traditionally, business standby generators ran on diesel and were expensive. Generac pioneered the development of clean, affordable propane and gaseous commercial generators. With units readily available in single and three phase voltage, propane or propane vapor and gaseous or dry fuel, there’s no longer a reason for business to operate unprotected from the dangers and costs of a power outage.
Generac’s business standby generators run quietly, stand up to severe weather, and provide built-in functionality, making generator ownership easy. Generac offers single and three phase outputs, with voltages ranging from 120V to 480V. Our Protector™ Series generators are available from 22-150kW. These kilowatt nodes are higher than residential generators. Choose natural gas for continuous supply from your local Utility or propane (or propane vapor) for a clean and low maintenance fuel source. You can also field convert any units 48kW or lower from natural gas to propane. Models with special catalysts are available to meet the emission standards in California.
Whether a power failure is simply not an option, or you just want an advantage over your competitors during a power outage, Generac standby generators make sure you're open for business during a power outage.
Generac’s new 4.5L engine intensifies best in industry performance and reliability. The purpose-built engine is at the heart of a new generator designed from the ground up by Generac and is made in Wisconsin, USA. Generac is one of the few manufacturers producing a complete generator – engine, alternator and controller.
Purpose-built exclusively for generators, in Wisconsin, USA. Utilizing the first in class, dual-valve ultra-low pressure fuel delivery system and intelligent proprietary engine controls that manage over 100 performance functions to ensure peak efficiency in all temperature ranges and elevations. The engine consumes 25% less fuel than previous engines, is capable of operating at the lowest fuel pressure in the industry at 3.5” of water column while still providing excellent motor starting capability.
Delivers utility-grade power quality with less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD) for clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances. Generac, controlling its high-efficiency alternator design and production, insures industry-leading surge protection, performance, and longevity.
Generac designs and manufactures a complete line of automatic transfer switches (ATS) to meet the requirements of virtually any business standby power application.
Expanded features have created a controller for liquid-cooled models (22 -150 kW) with an improved user interface for easier monitoring and management of the generator functions. Now includes many features and alarms previously available only on larger models.
Cold Weather & Maintenance Kits
Consists of a battery warmer with an automatically controlled thermostat built into the battery wrap. Recommended for areas where the temperature drops below 32° F. For areas that see temperatures far below 32°F, we offer Extreme Cold Weather Kits. Maintenance kits are also available, and necessary for the longevity of your unit.
