Running your home or business with a generator
You are more than aware of the trials and tribulations of using generators to power your home or business on a day-to-day basis. The expense, the maintenance, and the inefficiency will all be familiar problems to you. These generators, on the other hand, have to be kept running continually even when supply demands are light or intermittent, in order to produce an uninterrupted flow of electricity.
More so, a generator only runs at a single speed, so no matter how few the devices it is powering, the amount of fuel used will approximately be the same, costing more over the longer term. This high cost of energy is crippling businesses due to their heavy reliance on diesel generators, and is estimated to add between 30 to 40% to the cost of goods and services.
