Resiliency Speaker Series: The Machine of the Moment - Generator and Backup Power Strategies that Work
Recorded on July 19, 2013
Hurricane Sandy knocked out electrical and gas power to hundreds of thousands of multifamily buildings, leaving residents and building operators without pumps, hot water, refrigeration, an ability to charge critical equipment for days, even weeks on end. However, backup power affords building operators the ability to power up core equipment immediately after the power grid goes down, helping residents resume their normal lives with few disruptions. In this webinar, Brian Cronin of CSA Engineering Services LLC and Scott Schultz of Advanced Solar Products talk about the importance of generators and identify best practices for backup power strategies—from conventional gas-fired temporary generators to permanent auxiliary strategies.
