Commercial generators are ideal for backing up your business. They will automatically respond to a power outage and restore your power within seconds, regardless of whether you are open or not. No need to refuel these generators, they run on natural of LP gas.
How it works?
Before the power goes out
Your automatic transfer switch (ATS) monitors the electricity coming from the utility. It's working 24/7 to protect your home or business.
The power goes out
When the power fails or drops below a certain level, the ATS signals the generator to start. In seconds, the ATS transfers your power from the utility to the generator.
Your generator powers your home or business
Your generator then supplies your home or business with electricity until the utility power is restored.
