Businesses are under increasing pressure to ensure that they have a steady and reliable supply of energy. This is due to the fact that systems and processes have steadily grown less tolerant of power disturbances. What once might have been considered to be little more than a minor inconvenience today will likely result in major disruptions and losses.

The problem for business owners is that in spite of their best efforts, power disturbances will occur. While some may be the result of issues within the facility itself, most are due to external events which are beyond the control of the business. Faults in the utility’s distribution system, voltage spikes, voltage sags, brownouts, and blackouts can all cause interference or interruption in service.

If you are looking for ways to improve the reliability of your electrical power system, there are 2 key solutions available. For facilities with loads that cannot tolerate even a momentary loss of power or that require a clean, stable source of power, installation of a UPS system is vital. A backup generator is another piece of equipment which can improve the reliability of your facility’s electrical supply. If you are uncertain as to which backup power solution would be best for your application, the experts at SPS Eng. are on hand to offer advice.
