The agriculture industry relies on generators heavily. Generators provide the power needed for different situations to keep farms running smoothly. Without generators, there are times that farms would be down, sometimes for days. Managed Generator Services has the experience and the technical knowhow to ensure all our clients are “Always On.”
We at Managed Generator Services are very serious about creating a partnership and plan to make sure that the generators at each facility perform at top condition when they are needed. Last year was a deadly year with weather related incidents and MGS is proud to say that the generators we maintained across 5 states had a 98% uptime when power went out and the other 2% we had up within 4 hours.
Power for barns and poultry houses
Barns and poultry houses are two places on a farm that requires constant electricity input. Dairy farms need electricity in barns to power machinery and lights at all times. Poultry houses need electricity to power fans and lights. Both of these areas are required so that animals are not lost during power outages. Stakes are high, and generators provide the power needed if other sources fail.
Without generators, many animals could be lost, or machinery may need to be restarted or repaired. In addition to this, revenue may be lost as well. This is especially true with dairy farms. Dairy farms always need equipment running to milk cows and keep the milk at the correct temperature to prevent even more ripples involved with losing power.
Power in rural areas
Some parts of the farm may need electricity but may not be able to access the primary power source of the farm. These include crop fields and livestock fields. Crop fields may need electricity to power sprinkler systems and other machinery. Livestock fields need electricity to keep water warm or pump water to the area for livestock to drink. Both of these are crucial aspects of the agriculture industry that may not be possible without generators.
Importance of generators
Managed Generator Services understands that without generators, modern agriculture faces many challenges in the case of a power shortage or outage. If farms cannot operate due to not having a power source, food shortages become a real possibility. Besides, generators also provide electricity to areas that are not able to access the primary power source. Farms with generators that provide enough power to keep operations going are protected and are able to continue producing the food that we need without fail.
