Generator Help Online
Welcomes You

My name is Paul Harris,

I have been involved with all aspects of commercial emergency generators such as engineering, design, maintenance, and service for over 40 years.

This site will help to keep your backup generator in compliance with code, and help you ensure that you have a correct installation.

I also include information about power grid failure, emergency procedures, and basic operational sequences that most people just do not know.

Take some time to explore the site. Feel free to ask questions.

Reason for Backup Generators

Many important facilities that are critical to our world need the power to stay on.

Hospitals, assisted living centers, nursing homes, water/wastewater plants, fire stations, police stations, and manufacturing plants just to name a few.

Generators provide power to emergency lighting systems and fans that provide ventilation and smoke removal to facilties, for that reason an emergency generator’s critical purpose is to save lives.

Understanding Backup Power

I have worked with emergency generators for over forty-years.

In addition, I have visited the factories where many systems are manufactured.

I have solved issues with regard to engineering, mechanical, and electrical difficultiees including installation and building code problems.

Give me a challenge.

My field technicians and I love to find solutions to troublesome issues.

I may even write an article about it.
