Eskom load shedding creates havoc for most business’s and great inconvenience for home owners.
As a business you simply cannot afford to be unproductive without power for hours at a time resulting in lost production and revenue.
Experts have predicted that load shedding will be a part of our lives for the next few years, maybe as many as 10 years, and we either just have to learn to live with it or do something about it ourselves by installing some sort of back up power generation system.
The Techno Group has received numerous requests from clients desperate for us to solve their power problems and we have responded by investing in a specialised division dedicated to providing quality standby power solutions to fit your budget and needs. From a simple manually operated generator installation to fully automated stand by power plants.
Points to consider before investing in a standby power generation system.
Assess the load, will you be powering your entire home or office or just lighting and certain vital appliances, reduce your load by converting to energy saving lighting/appliances where possible.
Generators produce carbon monoxide fumes and noise, do you have a suitable location on your premises to cater for this, if not an inverter system may be your only option.
Are you happy to manually switch between standby and mains supply during power cuts, or do you require automatic changeover?
What type of load will you be powering, this will determine the quality of power supply required, some appliances, especially electronic devices, require good quality 230Vac, 50Hz pure sine wave. An inferior standby supply system could result in certain appliances not working or possibly even damage them.
