No Power? What Your Clients Need to Know About Emergency Generators

Basic Preventative Measures Can Save Big Bucks

What happens to your financial institution clients if the power goes out?  Can they service their clients?  What if the standby generator fails to kick-in right away?

According to a new informational presentation on backup generators by our reinsurance partners at Mutual Boiler Re, a typical data center loses $5,600 per minute on average if their power went out and the back-up system fails to start immediately.

While difficult to draw direct comparisons to a financial institution, a back-up generator is only as efficient as the plan around servicing it. This can be crucial to functioning IT systems, operating branches, and security considerations. The presentation shares information to help avoid problems when already facing an emergency event, such as a generator failing to start (as is the case 80% of the time when a battery isn’t charged).  This report can help identify common causes of failures encountered with emergency generators, including five easy maintenance steps to help ensure the generator works when needed.

Share the report with your clients and help them save time, money and aggravation before they have their next power failure.
