In today’s highly competitive business environment, companies, regardless of their niche, need to focus on energy security above all else. With the risk of power outages and disruptions on the rise, forward-thinking business owners know first-hand the importance of investing in battery power systems to literally keep the lights on in their business.
The truth is, power outages can occur anytime, anyplace and for all sorts of reasons. Battery power backups and generators provide industries with the power they need to sustain their commercial operations. Here are some surprising industries that use backup batteries and generators.
Tourism and Hospitality Sector
Running a hotel, resort, casino, or amusement park takes a lot of power – that power needs to be uninterrupted to make sure the guests feel safe and secure. Having the power go out can spell disaster for any business in the tourism and hospitality sector.
Unexpected power outages can not only hinder all communication systems and security cameras in a hotel or resort but can also shut down a facility’s pool filtration system, food storage, and the building’s cooling/heating systems. Having a backup battery system for emergency situations ensures a continuous interrupted flow of electricity so that a business remains operational.
State and government services such as water treatment, garbage and recycling and power plants don’t get the day off just because the power goes out. A battery backup and generator ensures all equipment and machinery, filtration and pumping systems, and computers and communication systems, including servers, continue to function even after power from the main grid has been cut off during a blackout.
Sure, the nuclear, hydroelectric, coal, or diesel-fired power plants help keep the lights on, but ever wondered what keeps the power running in these crucial industrial facilities? Every power station, regardless of whether it’s the traditional coal-powered power plant or even the solar or wind plants, needs to have a backup plan for emergency situations, aka, battery-powered systems and generators.
In a worst-case scenario, even large power plants turn to the reliability and efficiency of battery power and generators to keep them from losing millions of dollars’ worth of equipment just because of a few short hours of a power outage in their facility.
It is crucial for any business, regardless of its niche (companies, retailers, livestock farming facilities, observatories, laboratories, dentist/doctor offices, marijuana farms, and so on) to develop a disaster management plan that also accounts for unexpected power failure, mainly because power outages pose a serious financial risk to both small and large businesses.
On-site power backup options include generators and battery systems, which can keep minor outages or widespread power grid failures from hindering everyday business processes and making your company seem unreliable to customers.
