Home Generator Demand Currently Surpassing Supply

From weddings and concerts to anniversary and birthday celebrations, sometimes special occasions call for a bit more preparation. If you’re planning an event that requires reliable power for lighting, sound systems, food vendors, etc., renting a generator is a great option.

 

Power probably isn’t the first thing on your mind when it comes to planning your event, but it is an extremely important component. The size of generator you’ll need to power your event will depend on how many items you have that need electricity, but whether your event is big or small, renting a generator for a short-term event or project is a quick cure-all.

Oftentimes, the best event venues are in remote locations that may not have a power supply from the primary grid, or all the additional appliances and equipment used during events demand more energy than usual, causing overloads. Backup generators prevent you from losing power or not having enough to create a successful event.

Determining which generator best matches your needs depends on the electrical capacity needed, how long you need the generator, the locations of the unit, and what fuel it uses. Portable generators are the most commonly rented generators, but there are multiple options available. Towable generators are perfect for large events as they’re able to power multiple items at once. Rentable generators usually range from towable to containerized generators, offering capabilities of up to 2,000 kW units. This allows you the flexibility you need to create a power solution perfect for your event or project.

When you need a little extra power for an event, job site, natural disaster, or power outage, a generator is the solution you need. If you do decide to rent a generator, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Make sure you select a name-brand generator and rent from a trusted company. There’s a wide variety of generator types and brands, so it’s crucial you work with a reliable company that can help you make the right decision. Check that the generator is correct for your load requirements and that’s it’s been serviced and tested. Generators need regular servicing to keep the filters, fluids, and connections in top working order.
