Commercial Generators

No power. No customers. No revenue.

Lost power means lost revenues. In some cases, though, it could mean irreparable damage to your brand’s reputation. No matter your business need, commercial generators are protecting yours—from the damage of power outages. From legally required backup power systems to those that simply help you get an edge on your competitors, you can rely on commercial standby generators to protect your bottom line.

Every year, more than two million U.S. businesses experience a power outage lasting eight hours or more. Because this statistic is so powerful, it pays to understand how much a power outage will cost your business. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that on average, power outages cost $80 billion per year and that 98 percent of those losses come from the business sector.

of companies lose

20%

lose between $500,000
and $2 million

15%

lose more than

Consider direct costs, intangible losses and how essential your products and services are during a power outage.

• Refrigerated goods spoil

• Interrupting manufacturing processes can cause long-term damage to equipment and product

• Computer systems go down and vital data is lost


Keep the lights on and the doors open.

Many businesses have a lot to offer customers during power outages. In addition to making revenue loss less likely, keeping the doors open can provide important customer benefits.
