How to choose the right distribution centre generator

If you’re in the process of selecting a backup generator for your business, there are several important factors to keep in mind. These range from the control system type to the generator’s placement location. To ensure that you make the best decision for your distribution centre, requirements, and location, it’s recommended that you reach out to the Vital Power team for a quick discussion about your options.

Here are a few of the key considerations to keep in mind when choosing a generator for your distribution centre:


Determine where the generator will need to be located on your site. Take into account proximity to workspaces (for noise level) and power connectivity, as well as practicality for your warehouse.


Calculate the total wattage, run time, and function of everything that will require power from the generator. Vital Power can help with load bank testing and more to determine this.

Run time

Consider how long you’ll need to use the generator. While this may vary, having an estimate can be helpful. Our engineers can help determine this and make recommendations for the best options.

Physical size

We offer a range of generator and bulk fuel tank sizes to fit any space, but you’ll need to consider placement and access from the outset.

Got a question? We’re always happy to help.
