Should I Have a Backup Generator?

Whether you’re considering a commercial generator in western Wisconsin or a residential generator in Fargo North Dakota, our Minnesota generator experts proudly extend our services to our neighboring states. We are your licensed professionals no matter what your backup power needs are.

Many people overlook the importance of a backup generator until it’s too late. The best time to prepare for a power outage is today. That’s because standby power generators are about more than comfort alone. For example, home backup generators power essentials like oxygen tanks, well pumps, and security systems. Meanwhile, commercial generators help your business avoid temporary shutdowns, lost revenue, product damage, and other costly situations.

Here’s how our standby power generators work during these sudden outages:



Without warning, extreme weather or equipment failures can trigger power outages.



Through advanced sensors, your backup generator will detect interrupted power.



Powered by fuels such as liquid propane or natural gas, your generator will activate automatically.



Within seconds, an automatic transfer switch will restore power to your home or business.
