Emergency Power for Local Municipalities

Local government facilities use backup power when utilities fail.

Local Municipalities

Local Municipalities
Each state divides its territories into in counties, cities, towns, borrows, and villages. Governmental jurisdiction dictates the structure. Each county, city, town, etc. provides services to residents and businesses. Local municipalities are the local governmental entities that provide some of the following services:
  • Water Supply - Treatment and distribution of drinking water
  • Waste Water Treatment - Processing of sewage and waste water
  • Power Generation and Natural Gas Supply - Local light and gas providers
  • Health Services - State or local health service providers
  • Public Transportation - Electric subways and elevated trains
  • Public Facilities - Court houses, schools, libraries, court houses and police stations
Today's society expects the water to run when we turn on the facet, and a room to be illuminated at the flip of a switch. Emergency services are provided at the touch of a button via a vast communication network. Those we depend on for services, now considered commonplace, require dependable power to execute their duties efficiently. Not every municipality that provideds service is in a life or death situation with a power interruption, but a lack of power can upset the normal daily routine at a minimum.

Here in Colorado, we provide generator service and maintenance to numerous local city municipalities thorughout the state. These municipalities use generators for water pumps, lift stations, wastewater treatment, and for backup power to commercial buildings.

Emergency Power
Natural disasters, aging electrical infrastructure, and accidents attributed to human error are all significant contributors to loss of power to municipalities, residents, and industry. Installing a backup power supply is the obvious answer.

There is more than one option when installing a backup power supply. Solar energy is an expensive solution that requires the use of batteries, converters, and inverters, in addition to any switching devices. Batteries require planned maintenance and power ends when the batteries discharge. However, diesel or natural gas generators offer a long-term solution to power loss. 

Diesel engine powered generators are developed for almost all applications and can be modified for extreme operating conditions. These units are manufactured in sound attenuated cabinets, complete with intake, cooling, exhaust, and control/monitoring systems. Large fuel tanks offer fuel for extended operating periods. For facilities that require indoor generators, skid mounted generators are designed as a complete system. They connect to facility fuel, intake, and exhaust systems.

Low hour generators can be the solution to emergency power generation requirement. Generator Source has a large selection of low hour used generators. Each generator is inspected and load tested prior to sale. There is no wait for a new generator set. We can customize the generator for extreme operating conditions. Give us a call for quick delivery of your needed generator. For temporary needs we offer a rental option.
