Does it seem that the power grid is becoming increasingly unreliable? That power outages either due to bad weather, a crazy squirrel, or an accident seem to happen at the worst possible times? Well, there is a solution to relying solely on our electrical grid. More and more individuals and businesses are purchasing generators as a backup power supply.

Extended power outages can be costly.

Extended power outages can be costly. Staying in a hotel; throwing away food from the fridge and freezer; a sump pump that stops working causing your basement to flood; and in a Saskatchewan winter, the potential for frozen or burst water pipes can add up to a significant amount of money.

Cummins standby generators run on natural gas or propane and automatically start when the power supply is interrupted to your home or business.

Benefits of owning a generator include:

  • Increased safety
  • Convenience
  • Great backup power supply
  • Prevents appliances from shorting out from power outages
  • Prevents food spoilage
  • Increases home and property value
