Probability of power loss:
If your power supplier is highly reliable, and you expect it to stay that way, you don’t need back-up power.  If you are in a rural area or an area where power outages are frequent, backup power is a consideration.  Even if outages are infrequent but repairs take a long time, back-up power will keep you from sending your workforce home for the day when it happens.

Size of electrical load:
You need to know how much electricity your facility uses: what your peak load is, what a minimal load is, and what your average electrical load is.

Which systems are priority:
Are there some systems that could be shut down during an electrical outage and not drastically impact your operation?  You need to identify what systems are most important and which could be done without for a while.

Installation budget:
Naturally you will need to determine what you can budget for your back-up power installation.

Armed with this information you should contact us to discuss your needs, how we can meet those needs, and the costs involved.
