The Backup Power Small Businesses Need

In the U.S., “what-if” power outage scenarios are becoming “when-if” scenarios. Between 2000 and 2013, there were an average of 200 reported power grid outages per year, which does not include the plethora of weather-related outages or accidental outages, which can be caused by animals or human error during a construction project.
We understand that small businesses drive our economy today. And, frankly, we don’t consider any business to be “small” because so much is at stake—your brand’s reputation, your staff’s livelihoods, not to mention your significant investments in equipment, electronics, facilities, and inventory.
No matter what your need, Generac's business is protecting yours—from the damage of power outages. You can rely upon Generac standby generators to protect your bottom line and give you an edge over the competition, with the best power for small business. (source)
