Backup Power Solutions

 Both commercial backup generators and Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) systems are designed as backup systems when original power sources are interrupted, but there is a huge difference between the two. Having the right system in place will help your facility transition to emergency power supplies during outages or blackouts.

Standby Power Generators

Commercial backup generators are used as a temporary power source that can keep facilities operational during a power outage. Since there are many different types of generators on the market, finding the best one depends on the type of business you have, the size of your facility and the demands of your equipment.

Commercial backup generators are connected to the main power supply and are designed to handle your power demands. Fuel supply, ventilation, and area dimensions, and demand factors are all used when properly determining your generator requirements.

Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) Systems

UPS systems provide a backup power supply that keeps equipment running without interruptions during an outage. The main difference between a UPS and a commercial backup generator is that the UPS system relies on battery storage and therefore has a limited amount of power.

The purpose of the UPS is to run your system long enough for you to do a proper shut down or switch to the generator. Commercial backup generators and UPS systems work together to protect and safeguard data stored in computer systems and keep businesses running smoothly.

Automatic Transfer Switches

Automatic transfer switches are used in conjunction with commercial backup generators. These devices automatically switch to allow the generator to provide power to your electrical system to maintain your businesses vital equipment.

In most cases, the transfer switch will be connected to more circuits than the generator can accommodate all at once, so proper integration is needed so the system doesn’t get overloaded. Having professionals to install transfer switches, program controllers, and test the system is necessary for smooth operation and safety.

Emergency Power Solutions

In some facilities, identifying wiring issues and code violations before the installation of a commercial backup generator system is necessary. When faced with such a situation, our licensed electricians will advise customers on any and all options to bring the system back to code.

Complete emergency power solutions involve evaluating current system components, improving internal electrical installations, and testing emergency operation equipment. Our licensed, bonded and insured professionals are able to ensure that complex emergency power solutions are installed correctly, safely and efficiently.

Common power issues can include:

  • Power surges from heavy electrical equipment.
  • Voltage spikes from an inefficient electrical system.
  • Transient power and voltage can cause frequency variation from unstable power sources.
  • Blackouts caused by tripping circuit breakers or utility failure.

Efficient Energy Solutions

Homes, businesses, and industries account for three-quarters of energy consumption, and two-thirds of carbon emissions. But the electricity used to power systems that contain heavy electrical loads can be done by using power factor correction and surge suppression.

Energy-efficient building designs can significantly reduce the energy demands, and help your facility save money from costly utility bills. At Electrical Elite, our trained technicians can help evaluate your system, and identify areas that can contribute to lower energy use and better cost-savings.

24-Hour Repair and Maintenance

It’s easy to ignore your electricity needs until something goes wrong. While a dimming or flickering light may not seem like a big deal, any inconsistency with your electrical system can indicate a serious safety issue.
