Backup Power Solutions

 Both industrial backup generators and Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) arrangements 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 in the most efficient and safest manner.

Standby Power

Industrial 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.

Industrial 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 an industrial 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. Industrial backup generators and UPS systems work together to protect and safeguard data stored in computer systems and keep operations running smoothly.

Automatic Transfer

Automatic transfer switches are used in conjunction with industrial backup generators. These devices automatically switch to allow the generator to provide power to your electrical system to maintain your operations 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 an industrial backup generator system is necessary. When faced with such a situation, our licensed electricians will advise customers on 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 form unstable.
  • Frequency variation from unstable power sources.
  • Blackouts caused by tripping circuit breakers or utility failure.

The major benefits to sharing the total load among multiple industrial backup generator sets connected in parallel include:

  • Maximizing system reliability and availability.
  • Improved coverage during routine maintenance.
  • Helping with equipment longevity.
  • Provides backup power redundancy.
  • Creating easier maintenance schedules.
  • Enhancing system expansion capabilities

Backup Generator

While single, large industrial backup generators have enough power to serve some facilities, your building may be growing and need more flexibility and scalability for backup power. By integrating multiple generators in parallel, and installing the appropriate switchgear, you can develop a system of industrial backup generators to meet the demands of your facility.

Many facilities have electrical loads that can be grouped according to their priority. Critical loads such as life-safety systems, data systems and communications can have priority over non-critical loads such as ventilation or general lighting. Having flexibility on where power should be diverted can help your facility run smoothly, maximize resources, and keep costs down during times of emergency.

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.

At Electrical Elite, we understand the inconvenience, danger, and lost productivity that can result from an electrical emergency. That’s why we offer 24-hour emergency electrical services performed by our experienced technicians.

​We carry the latest, most up-to-date electrical equipment and tools so that our technicians can handle any electrical job. We pride ourselves on being ready and quick to respond to any emergency electrical situation that may arise.

Examples of emergency service situations include:

  • Internal floods and leaks around electrical equipment.
  • Arcing and smoking originating from electrical panel boxes or equipment.
  • Flickering, buzzing or dimmed lights.
  • Odd smells from electrical devices, such as outlets and switches.
  • Tripping breakers or electric shocks.


From concept to completion, our team at Electrical Elite offers a full spectrum of electrical design management. By maintaining premium customer service, before and after project installation, we’ve developed a reputation as the premier full-service electrical company in Barrie, the GTA, and surrounding areas.
