Emergency Back Up

Power Outages are extremely common and many commercial businesses are not prepared for the fallout from sustained power failure.  Most commercial facilities do not have the appropriate back up power needed to keep the facility running during a power outage. While some facilities have some sort of back up device, this device is not equipped to hand a complete and/or prolonged loss of power.

At Main Stream Electric, we focus on preparation. It’s the best defense against commercial business power outages. When you contact us, our expert commercial electricians will assess your commercial facility and determine what emergency generator power you might need in the event of a blackout. Power failures are often unpredictable so you should always be prepared for a spontaneous, random, and unexpected blackout. If you’re proactive about protecting your commercial business, you will decrease your company’s downtime and profit loss while protecting your critical electrical devices from extensive damage.


What is a data center?

A data center is a space specifically designed and equipped to meet the needs of high density computing equipment. Most data centers include server racks used for data storage and processing. These centers are often free-standing, mission critical computing centers that require dedicated uninterruptible power supplies and cooling systems. Data centers located in a larger building typically have their own power and cooling systems.

What causes a blackout or power outage?

Blackouts and power outages can be caused by a number of factors including unplanned disturbance, usually on the power lines and wires. Falling or leaning trees, severe weather, storms, cold and ice, hurricanes, and tornadoes can also cause power outages. Operational mismanagement, control errors, and power cuts also cause shutdowns.

I think the electrical equipment in my office is pretty secure. Aren’t the chances of a massive power outage extremely slim?

Today, our world relies heavily on electricity and power. We can’t ask ourselves, “Will a failure happen?” We can only as ourselves, “When will failures happen?” Lengthy power outages can cause major financial loss for business owners and their facilities. Many power outages are not predictable, so it’s important to be ready for one at any time. A stable supply of electricity will allow operations to continue even through a complete power failure.
