Power Outages Are Unpredictable

With spring storms in full swing, many people are extremely aware of the potential for power outages. While you are thinking about the dangers and costs to your business that are associated with power outages, it is important to note that there are other causes.

Outages can impact your business at any time.

A power outage can be caused by any number of things. Here are a few common causes:

Changes in weather


High Winds


Equipment Failure

Power Lines




Human Error

With the multitude of causes, ranging from the predictable to the completely random, hello, birds on the wire, it is important to make sure your business is prepared for power outages.

Do you have protection in place for when the power goes out?

The uninterruptible power supply system is typically used to protect hardware such as computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment, or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption, or data loss.
