Prepare for the Worst

Just because there isn’t an imminent threat doesn’t mean you shouldn’t always be prepared for extreme events that can crop up quickly. Backup power is a key consideration, as outages can be unpredictable and costly. Having a backup strategy can keep occupants safe and business operations from being slowed.

The most obvious solution is a comprehensive system of generators that can keep the power on if the grid experiences disruptions. It’s not the only solution, however, as green options are available such as solar generators or cogeneration. It’s also crucial to prioritize the importance of specific facilities within your portfolio. A plan for loss of power scenarios should always include information about which buildings should receive generator power to remain habitable.
