Benefits of Backup Generators for Warehouses
One of the biggest benefits of having a backup generator is that it ensures continuity of operations during a power outage. Warehouses typically have a large inventory of goods that require a stable temperature and humidity level to prevent damage. A backup generator can power HVAC systems and keep the environment stable, preventing any loss of inventory.
Having a backup generator installed may seem like an additional expense up front, but it can save businesses money in the long run. The cost of downtime during a power outage can be significant, and the loss of inventory can be catastrophic. A backup generator ensures that operations continue as usual, reducing the risk of lost revenue and damage to inventory.

Increased security and safety
A power outage can potentially create a safety hazard for employees working in the warehouse. A backup generator ensures that the lighting remains on, preventing accidents and injuries. Additionally, a power outage could disable security systems, leaving the warehouse vulnerable to theft and vandalism. A backup generator can power security systems, preventing any security breaches.
Key Factors to Consider When Choosing a Backup Generator for Your Warehouse
Your Business Power Requirements
The first factor to consider when choosing a backup generator is the power requirements of your warehouse. The size of the generator needed will depend on the size of the warehouse and the power consumption of the equipment. It is important to consult with a professional to ensure that the generator meets the power requirements of the warehouse. Vital Power can help with load testing and more to suggest the perfect sized generator.
The location of the generator is another important factor to consider. The generator should be located in an area that is easily accessible for maintenance and repairs. It should also be located in an area that is protected from the elements, such as rain and snow.
The noise level of the generator is another important factor to consider. Some generators can be loud, which can be disruptive to employees working in the warehouse. It is important to choose a generator that has a low noise level to ensure that it does not disrupt the daily operations of the warehouse. You might want to consider a silent diesel generator for any particularly sensitive areas located close to people working or other businesses.
