Commercial Generator Sizing

Commercial Generator Sizing

Today's businesses have more power-consuming devices than ever before. And the need to maintain electrical power and life safety systems when a power outage occurs is equally important.

Whether you just want to provide electrical power to a few essential areas of your business, keep that much needed and critical computer server in operation, or you wish to energize your entire business, our generator sales team has the experience and knowhow to help you select the right size generator for your needs.

Our team of experts will come to your business and provide a free consultation and estimate. Because the cost of a standby generator system depends on many items, we provide emergency and standby electrical power generators based solely on what your needs truly are. Among the items to consider are the electrical power generator size, installation, permits, and fuel source.

Many people believe that smaller electrical power generators are the way to go for standby electric power because they are not running all the time. This is a myth that can have disastrous results. Emergency power generator under-sizing is one of the most common mistakes committed by buyers. Not only does under-sizing your emergency power generator run the risk of damaging your new generator, but under-sizing can also result in damage to some of the electrical systems and equipment connected to your emergency power generator. An undersized emergency backup generator can even limit overall productivity of the standby generator system. If nothing else, the key thing to remember here is that more is always better than less.

Our expert electrical design team will create a load calculation customized for your business, taking into consideration your current needs as well as factoring in future growth. We will come out to your business to do a detailed survey of your location and design the most economical and practical emergency standby system tailored exclusively to your business.

Going to a store or dealer and buying the cheapest electrical power generator available without any other consideration is clearly not the best approach. It is always better to delve deep into your emergency power generation requirements before making a choice. You can do this by having an electrical design professional from a fully licensed electrical contractor perform an inspection and calculate your power requirements for you.

The electrical estimators, design team, and licensed electricians at SME Inc of Seattle have the training, experience, and knowhow to select, install, and service the proper standby power generator for your business. At SME Inc of Seattle, we are at your service.
