Emergency Preparedness

Storm Preparedness

The extremely active storm and hurricane seasons aren’t just bringing more storms – they’re also bringing more intense, severe weather and rainfall to a number of states along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Storms are one of the leading causes of power outages in the U.S., which makes reliable power a priority for your organization.

How can businesses prepare for hurricanes?

No matter your line of business, storm season’s severe weather can be both unpredictable and devastating for any organization – especially if you’re not prepared. That’s why it’s best to create an emergency action plan well before the beginning of storm season to address potential threats and the impact they can have on your everyday operations.

One of the best ways you can insulate your organization from significant production delays, service interruption and costly downtime is to invest in backup power systems designed to help keep your business up and running before, during and after disaster strikes. And the time to do that is now.

How sustainable solutions can help you during hurricane season


On-site power

The first step in your hurricane emergency plan? Reliable backup power. Your protection against the true costs of downtime starts with investing in solar + storage or commercial backup generators (emergency or primary) to provide the on-site generation you need to help keep your operations up and running when the grid goes down.


Less interruption of power

What happens when your operations and services are so critical that you can’t spare a single moment of downtime? Pair your generator with the immediate power provided by uninterruptible power supply (UPS), helping you better ensure product quality and continuity of critical municipal services during and after the storm.


More connectivity

Don’t waste time worrying about resetting manufacturing lines or losing communication with your employees and customers. Advanced monitoring services relay critical information during storms, providing you with the added reassurance and connectivity you need to refocus your attention on more pressing matters.
