Generator Preparation for Thunderstorms

Generator Preparation for Thunderstorms

Summertime means warm weather and moisture, leading to a higher chance of thunderstorms forming especially near bodies of water. Lightning is a common and dangerous factor in thunderstorms, striking at any time up to ten miles away from any associated rainfall. Accompanied by high winds, lightning strikes can lead to power outages, which can affect your level of operations at your business. Making sure your facility is prepared in the case of a weather emergency is critical to reducing data loss.

Do you have a generator?

A power generator will be able to keep your facility online while the grid experiences an outage. By contacting a generator retailer or technician, you will be able to determine the exact voltage you will need to keep the entire building powered. If you know that a storm is approaching and you do not have a generator for your facility, Weld Power can provide you with a rental unit for the duration of the storm. Our technicians are able to transport and hook up the generator, performing any necessary maintenance within four hours of your initial contact with our company.

Scheduling maintenance

Making sure each component of your generator is fully functional is critical to the unit running correctly. If you see talk of a storm appearing in the headlines and weather reports, you should schedule an inspection and maintenance visit within the next few days. By scheduling a visit as soon as possible, you can make sure a technician is at your facility, checking each part of your generator prior to the storm. A technician will perform an inspection of parts, fluids and functionality, providing you with a rundown of the work performed, repairs made and a maintenance schedule to keep your generator in top shape.
