A Generator, Finally!
posted by admin on 08/08/05
After this last weekend, it became increasingly apparent the need for a diesel or gasoline generator in order for us to be able to provide top notch service. Our budget for these kinds of things remains small, but Fairhaven Light & Ether up in Bellingham worked with us to find a solution.
We now have a 4000VA generator. Our battery UPS systems utilize 3000VA, and critical equipment needs to keep all Internet services running are about 1500VA. The generator failover is manual start, but with our 4-6 hour battery capacity, and pagers going off within 10-20 minutes of a problem, there should be no issues in regards to unplugging from the 'grid' and keeping services up for hours, days or weeks if necessary.
