Without power most if not all businesses would cease to be operational. It might seem a little bit like a paradox that the more reliant on electrical power we become the higher the cost of energy as a whole, and what happens when your energy supply cuts out? Hopefully you’ll have a contingency in place, for example standby generators. Generators have, for a long time, been a viable source of energy. They have lots of benefits, they are portable and so can be used “on location” to provide power, plus they are not on the grid, and so can operate away from the grid, useful if the the mains electric cuts out.

Obviously, the idea of backup power is a very sensible one, so why don’t all small businesses own a generator? Obviously there’s a cost involved, and owning a generator outright is fairly expensive. If you are planning on using a generator regularly, for instance if you consistently require power “on location,” this expense is justified, if not then perhaps it isn’t.

However, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, so to speak. There are a few other ways to get your hands on a generator, and it won’t break the bank either. For instance, you might consider used generators or you could even opt for generator hire, which is particularly useful when we’re talking about on off usage, such as “on location” projects.
