Powering The Construction Industry: The Vital Role of Portable Generators

Construction Companies And Contractors Count On Portable Industrial Power To Get The Job Done And Generator Source Is Happy To Connect Them!

The construction industry contributes significantly to the United States’ gross domestic product, with an estimated 6% to 8% share in any given fiscal year. Over the past couple of decades, the construction industry has witnessed remarkable advancements in equipment and tools, allowing for the completion of work in a safer, faster, and more efficient manner, but one factor remains a given: the need for industrial, portable power at the worksite.
The utilization of various automated tools such as concrete mixers, finish machines, air compressors, nail guns, and light towers, just to name a few; all need power! This is possible thanks to diesel generators which offer a reliable electric supply on the go. However, many hand tools also require power, and, often, utility power is not readily available at construction sites throughout the project duration. Of course, construction companies move from project to project, so trailer-mounted generators are key to staying powered no matter where a construction team is operating. 
To address this challenge, advancements in power generation have seen generators ranging from 20 kW to 500 kW with outputs from 120 to 480 volts and most modern portable units are now equipped with a voltage selector switch so they can power a variety of tools and be used in numerous applications.
These portable generators constitute a complete power generation system, including an engine, alternator, cooling system, fuel tank, control panel and output connections, sound-attenuated enclosures, and of course they are trailer mounted and ready to roll to the next project. If a new project or your business is in a state with stiffer generator regulations, you might always consider a Tier 4 unit. Yes, Generator Source has plenty of those too!
For larger projects such as high-rise towers and civil engineering endeavors, generators with a capacity rated from 500 kW to 2000 kW are readily available at Generator Source as well. These generators can be customized for extreme weather and operating conditions. In instances where contractors require a temporary power solution, a rental program is in place here at Generator Source to cater to such needs.
In conclusion, the role of industrial and commercial generators in powering the construction industry is indispensable. The availability of a wide range of portable generators tailored to diverse project requirements ensures that construction activities can proceed seamlessly, irrespective of the availability of utility power.
