  • Prior to contracting with Electro-Motion, we did our own maintenance, which was very little due to lack of qualified staff and budget concerns. We have four diesel units at our various high schools and none were in great operating condition. Electro-Motion came in and provided us with professional services and brought our generators up to full operational capability. We are also considered emergency shelters due to unforseen natural disasters; and we need our generators to support this type of operation.

    Don't Exercise Your Unit on Friday

    August 18, 2015

    The work week can be stressful. Departmental meetings, fast-approaching deadlines, and endless phone calls interrupting you all day. We all have to deal with it, so who wants to add a noisy emergency generator chugging away in the background on top of all that? Procedures require you to exercise that equipment, but why not push it off until Friday afternoon to avoid inconveniencing your fellow employees or neighbors for 15 minutes during the week? Well, there's one REALLY good reason.

    If it turns out that there's a problem with your generator on a Friday afternoon, you're looking at OVERTIME costs to diagnose and repair the unit, not to mention the costs involved in renting a portable generator for the weekend (or longer) if your building needs it. That's a lot more stress to risk versus a few minutes of background noise during the week.

    Be smart and exercise your emergency generator on Mondays through Thursdays so that you have an additional work day to address any complications.
