How much does a commercial backup generator cost?
The cost of standby generator rental in Canada varies significantly, but we know how important it is to balance cost against performance. One way we can reduce your cost is by right-sizing your generator, whether you need a compact 35 kW unit or a containerized 2 MW generator.
Do standby generators run on gas or oil?
Most standby generators run on diesel, but we’ve invested in a large fleet of natural gas and dual-fuel generators. In this way, we’re giving our customers even more choice – and an effective way to take advantage of good gas prices while lowering emissions.
Are backup generators worth it?
Understanding the value of a dependable backup or standby generator only takes a simple comparison. What would the cost of downtime – planned or unplanned – be for your project or your business? In almost every case, thinking ahead with a backup generator creates a significant saving.
How long can a backup generator run for?
There’s no operating limit for most backup generators – you’ll only be limited by fuel, and for diesel units, the need for occasional oil changes. At Aggreko, we’ve designed our standby generators to run and run for as long as you need, with longer service intervals and minimal maintenance.
