The Value of Offering Design Flexibility
Now that Generac provides single-engine diesel generators up to 2 MW, we’re reminding our customers of the variety of ways they can achieve the backup power capacity they need. Maybe you require a single engine generator, and if so, Generac can certainly provide it. Application flexibility in achieving backup power is one of the biggest benefits Generac provides – it’s something few (if any) of their competitors can offer.
To help explain this concept, Generac has produced a new Power Solutions Flexibility video. In the video, you’ll see all the ways Generac can provide 2 MW of backup power. Yes, it can be a single-engine genset. But it can also be several units connected in parallel, with a variety of fuel types, enclosures, and control strategies. This flexibility adds reliability to a backup power solution, and offers options and benefits you won’t get from a single large genset. Watch the video.
