Used Generators For Backing Up COVID Vaccine Freezers

The global pandemic has thrusted new energy problems to solve as the world rushes to vaccinate it’s people. Here at Generator Source, our used industrial generators are being used to provide backup power to COVID vaccine freezers. The backup power provided by our used industrial generators ensure the COVID vaccines remain at proper temperatures. The energy requirements in storing COVID vaccines is substantial. In the event of a power outage the freezers would not maintain adequate temperature levels to keep the vaccines viable for the general public. For these reasons, companies are investing in Generator Source’s used industrial generators to keep their vaccine inventory safe when the power grid fails. We’re proud to play an important role during this global pandemic as our used industrial generators help millions of people be safely and effectively vaccinated.
