4 Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Backup Power System
Most Australian businesses rely on constant and consistent access to power. Whether it’s an office in the CBD that lives off computers or a bean farm with an automated packing line, power is the source that keeps things running. And this can be a risk for your business, because power outages are common, especially in rural areas of the country.
Depending on its duration, a power outage has the potential to cause serious damage to your business by interrupting your production operations. This can cause a loss of money and investment, and that’s where backup power systems come in.
What Is a Backup Power System?
A backup power system is an electrical system that is permanently installed at your business premises so that if the power goes out, your operations don’t have to stop.
At BON, we specialise in standby power systems which kick in to support your production and operations when and if required. There are different types of backup power systems on the market, for example, Diesel or Gas. A consultant can advise you on the best option for you and your business.
How Do standby Backup Systems Help Your Business?
1. No interruptions
Standby power systems are designed to work so that they only activate if there is a need for it. If your business is hit by a power outage, a standby power system will kick in and make sure there are no interruptions to what you’re doing. This includes computers and phones, lighting, automated production systems, irrigation, and anything else that requires electricity to function.
2. More security
Installing a standby power system is no different than taking out insurance to cover other aspects of your business. Having a backup generator means that in case of a power outage, you’re covered and you don’t run the risk of halting your production – and everything that comes with it.
Can you afford the risk of power failure to your production operation? Think of how much of your production relies on power, and how much money you will lose if everything stops due to a power outage. Installing a standby backup power system will not only give you peace of mind but will also save you money when a power outage occurs.
4. Peak capacity shavings
Proactively manage your power costs by switching off from the network during peak demand times that incur higher KW costs.
