A power outage can last hours or even days which could lead to significant loss in revenue, and for some businesses a loss of perishable inventory, costing tens of thousands of dollars. What impact will a loss of power have on your business? Lost sales, lost productivity, lost wages, computer system failure, and the list goes on, but answer that question for your particular business and you'll see that having a commercial automatic standby generator is crucial for maintaining resiliency and operation during natural disasters or proactive utility power shutdowns.
Now compare that to a scenario where you have back up power, but your competition doesn't. You're not only able to continue business as usual, but increase your sales by picking up customers that would normally be shopping throughout the community, but now you're the only choice. As a business owner, you can now turn a negative into a positive. Businesses that experience power outages can often recoup the cost of the generator after just their first use when compared to the avoided losses.

After several lengthy power outages Central Sierra had to have a reliable source of power when the grid went down in order to sustain their goal of reducing poverty and financial insecurity among children and custodial parents. Modernize Power solved this problem by installing a 70kW natural gas automatic standby generator to power the entire building during an outage.
The Food Bank provides food assistance through multiple programs including the Emergency Food Assistance Network which consists of multiple agencies that make up the safety net for El Dorado County’s at-risk population. Modernize Power was called in to ensure their cold storage and operational duties could continue during prolonged power outages and installed a 150kW industrial liquid cooled automatic standby propane generator to power the entire building during an outage.
