What are the Benefits of Natural Gas Generator Rental?
Are you considering a gas generator rental? One of the most common questions for renting a generator regards fuel source. Natural gas? Diesel? Propane? In this week’s post, we’ll be highlighting the benefits of a natural gas generator rental. Here is what you need to know.
Natural gas is one of the most dependable fuel sources available. It is incredibly easy to get, even during emergencies. As demand for diesel fuel increases, getting it becomes more challenging. However, with natural gas, you can connect your generator to the supply pipeline near your home or office. While you may need diesel or propane delivered, natural gas is always ready to use. No matter the emergency, you can count on it.
Clean and Eco-Friendly
Compared to coal, gasoline, diesel, and oil, natural gas burns the cleanest among all fossil fuels. Furthermore, natural gas generators minimize greenhouse gas emission of carbon dioxide. Emissions of nitrogen and sulfur are also lower with a gas fueled generator. And since it does not need to be stored, no need to fear harmful oil spills either.
With diesel fuel, you would need routine scheduled maintenance at least once a year because diesel fuel shelf life is less than 12 months. In addition, degradation, tank and filter maintenance, microbial contamination, and water acclamation all present challenges for having on-site diesel fuel.
A natural gas generator rental presents fewer health risks than other fuel types. Natural gas is non-toxic when inhaled in small amounts. Also, fewer gas emissions occur with gas generator rentals than with oil, propane, or diesel. Lastly, gas generators do not produce soot or ash.
Perhaps the most important factor for the consumer is cost. Natural gas costs roughly 1/10 the cost of diesel, depending on where you live. Moreover, diesel fuel costs are expected to escalate given increased demand. Natural gas provides cheaper extended run times and gas utility infrastructure is, in many areas, redundant and is reliable as an emergency fuel source.
