An extended power outage can be far more than just an inconvenience—it could be life-threatening. Severe weather knocking out power for hours at a time or an unexpected and lengthy grid outage can potentially destroy food, take down critical communications infrastructure, and even prevent your business* from running at all. These days, it’s becoming more and more important to have a reliable source of backup power that you can turn to for at least basic functions when the power goes down.

Emergency Standby Generators
Standby generators are the next evolution in emergency power technology. If you have ever had to haul a heavy portable generator out, only to find out it won’t start because the gas has gone bad and the engine needs maintenance, then a standby generator may be the answer to your stress. Standby generators, as their name implies, are constantly “on standby,” ready to go at a moment’s notice. When the power goes out, your standby generator switches on and within moments starts providing your property with power you can use for everything from lights to appliances to even energy for cooking.
Here are just a few of the other perks of standby generators:
- No setup time: Once permanently installed, a standby generator stays in place. No worrying about additional storage or setup time when the power goes down.
- Seamless operation in severe weather: Standby generators are build to perform in even the worst conditions, meaning they’ll be able to turn on in some of the biggest and nastiest storms you might face.
- Low-maintenance: Unlike engine-powered portable generators, standby generators are an extremely low-maintenance emergency power solution. Depending on the model you choose, you might require no more than just one maintenance service per year.
These generators are typically powered by a natural gas or propane connection, meaning they perpetually fuel themselves without your intervention. No more worrying about bad gasoline, clogged fuel lines, and many of the other common issues that plague many smaller portable generator models.
Stop Living in Fear of Rolling Blackouts
In California and Texas alike, rolling blackouts are becoming an increasingly common part of life. When dry conditions meet high winds in drought-prone Southern California, energy companies shut off distribution equipment to reduce the possibility of an unexpected failure and massive wildfire. Similarly, when blasts of arctic air cause temperatures to plummet in Southeastern Texas, rolling blackouts may result in an effort to protect the grid. However, nobody really knows how long the next blackout will last. A few minutes? A few hours? Several hours over the course of several days? So long as the conditions persist, the blackouts will continue.
With an emergency standby generator from Sun Energy, you won’t have to stress or worry about how long your blackout will last. With a properly-sized generator, you can even restore some of your most energy-intensive appliances, including your water heater and even your HVAC system.
