When it comes to choosing the right generator for your needs, it's important to understand the power requirements of the appliances you want to power. To get a rough approximation, add up the watts of everything you want to power during an outage. However, some appliances, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and sump pumps, consume more power when they turn on. To avoid being left in the dark during a power outage, it's important to consider these watts of magnification when making your calculations.
When selecting a generator, you can choose between a traditional portable generator and an inverter generator. Traditional generators create AC power, while inverter generators create AC power, convert it to DC, and then change it back to AC. This process produces cleaner energy, which is necessary for sensitive electronic components. Propane generators are particularly suitable for residential backup power applications.
Data centers also need a reliable power supply, as a power outage could jeopardize important government and business data. The Ego Power+ Nexus PST3042 power plant configuration comes with two large 56 volt 7.5 Ah (ampere-hour) Ego batteries that are compatible with other Ego tools and has additional ports for two more batteries. To determine the size of the generator you need, consider the appliances you need to power and add your wattage. You may need to unplug the microwave if you are going to operate a space heater, which generally has a much higher operating power.
You don't need an expensive whole-house backup generator or a heavy-duty portable generator to power them.
