Regardless of whether it’s a preschool, middle school, high school, or university, losing power in educational institutions and facilities not only result in lost time for lessons and educational disruptions, but could also jeopardize the safety of the students and faculty as well.
Loss of power without a backup commercial generator doesn’t simply equate to the lights going out. Power loss could also result in loss of sufficient heating or air conditioning, creating unsafe temperatures and environments for both students and faculty, sump pumps for university-provided housing could fail, causing flooding and pose threats to students inhabiting the building, and wide-spread panic could result in serious or even grave injuries.
Additionally, campus medical facilities and medical universities that not only have in-patient, outpatient, urgent care centers, and research labs could be negatively impacted. Lab and medical equipment could go down due to power loss, such as ventilation hoods that filter chemical fumes, medical equipment for patients that are being treated by students in their residency, or other critical life-saving tools.
In the past, there have been countless power outages that have affected university students, such as in Illinois & Texas, which not only left students without power, but also added stress due to these outages occurring during final exam week.
Depending on the outcome of an event such as power loss, your facility may lose credibility and face diminishing enrollment or even legal damages going forward, as parents may lobby against the lack of safety and precautionary measures against your facility or institution.
One way to ensure your school, university, or other educational institution can ensure the safety of your students and faculty, as well as keep those lessons going is to install a powerful and reliable generator for when the primary source of power fails.
Benefits of Buying a Used backup generator
Buying a used commercial emergency generator is a smart choice for any organization on a budget. With a carefully selected machine from Woodstock Power, you can get a reliable backup power solution while saving the depreciation associated with buying new. Not only does this keep your initial costs low, it also gives you a unit that, if properly maintained, can be resold in the future without a significant loss.
While the savings are critical, many businesses don’t realize that buying used saves time as well as money. Lead times for new generators – particularly specialized industrial units – can be weeks or longer. At Woodstock Power, most orders are processed in three days or less, and shipped out from one of our many domestic holding centers.
Woodstock Power has taken great care to offer an extensive selection of used industrial emergency power systems at a range of different-rated capacities and price points. We frequently carry machines by leading manufacturers such as Caterpillar®, Cummins, Kohler, John Deere and more. Because we are an independent used dealer, we have no quotas or corporate obligations to meet, and are free to recommend the best unit for your needs.
All our used emergency and standby power systems for colleges and universities are extensively tested prior to sale and confirmed to be in full working condition. Many of our units have low hours, and some are even still covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty.
