Preparing a Standby Generator for Winter Conditions

Diesel GeneratorPreparing for winter should be a key part of any operation to avoid interruptions in business and incurring costs from damage done during severe winter weather. Outlined here is a plan to protect a facility or worksite's backup power generator from winter outages caused by heavy snow, freezing temps or ice storms, for example.  Planning before the winter season is ideal but early in the season is still advantageous.  This month's article explains the primary areas of concern for pre-planning, such as such as inspecting and maintenance.  It also goes into detail on what to do during extreme weather operation and what to check post winter so you can be even more prepared in the future.
