Emergency backup electrical generators can save lives during an emergency. Interruptions of electrical power, even of short duration, create situations that could imperil public health and safety. Blackouts also wreak havoc for businesses and create significant inconveniences for individuals. Emergency generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power supply system.

From hurricanes, floods, mud slides, to wild fires and tornadoes, frequent weather-related disasters call attention to the vulnerability of the nation's electrical grid and the importance of continuous electrical power. Weather events, both large and small, cut off power to hundreds of thousands of people and businesses for days exposing the importance of emergency backup power as part of local, state and federal emergency preparedness, response and recovery.

This webinar is designed to provide a basic understanding of the issues surrounding the use of emergency backup power systems, technology and fuel choices, operating conditions and incentives to provide critical electrical power.
