ENERGY EFFICIENCY - EMERGENCY GENERATORS
The addition of an emergency generator has always been a way to ensure available back-up power, especially for critical facilities. But emergency generators can also be utilized as a capacity management asset. Rather than only turning them on when the power goes out, emergency generators can be fired up when the grid experiences stress due to high electricity demand.
Utilizing your generator in this regard will allow you to qualify for demand response programs and receive payments for your generation. Additionally, you will be reducing the amount of energy that you draw from the grid during these high demand periods, which will reduce your PLC number and capacity costs, but will also offset transmission and distribution charges from the utility.
