All of us rely on electricity in our daily lives. However, the extent of our dependence is rarely noticed until the power actually goes out.  Power outages are an all too common occurrence these days as we've recently seen natural disasters cripple entire regions of the country and leave them powerless.  The Seattle area just witnessed windstorms that destroyed power lines leaving thousands of people and businesses without power.  For business owners, it's imperative to have power running at all times to keep operations flowing smoothly and maintain revenue streams. A cost to benefit analysis would reveal just how much money could be lost without a backup power supply. In most instances you'll find generators pay for themselves after a few occurrences of power loss.  The following articles describe how certain industries prepare for power loss using standby power generators.
