    San Francisco Power Outage

    April 27, 2017

    San Francisco Power Outage 4-21-2017

    On Friday morning, April 21st, a massive power outage caused by a fire at PG&E's Larkin Street Substation struck San Francisco's Financial District, leaving nearly 90,000 residents (roughly 1 in 10) without power, closing down the Montgomery BART station hub, and bringing traffic to a standstill due to impacted traffic signals. The San Francisco Fire Department responded to more than 100 calls for service, including 20 stuck elevators in multiple buildings with people trapped inside. While there were no injuries due to the outage, emergency backup power systems in hospitals kicked in, allowing them to stay in operation for their patients. Other businesses were not as lucky for the 7 hours that the outage lasted. Of the nearly 50 generators that Electro-Motion performs preventive maintenance on in San Francisco, we only received one emergency call (and it wasn't even service-related) - all other units we service operated as designed.

    In a world that relies so heavily on electricity, being prepared is the best defense against power outages; and proactive, preventive maintenance is the best way to ensure your backup power system is in good working condition in the event of an emergency.


    EGSA Certification: What Does It Mean?

    September 29, 2016

    It may not take a great amount of technical knowledge about mechanics to change the oil in your emergency generator, but should you be satisfied with that level of skill? Your emergency backup power system is important, whether it be for life-safety or keeping equipment and internal systems online that are vital to the operation of your business. Therefore, it is in your best interest to make sure the technicians servicing your equipment are skilled and knowledgeable. And you should have more than just their word that they know what they're doing.

    The Electrical Generator Systems Technician Certification Program provided by EGSA (Electrical Generating Systems Association - the world's leading authority in the development and monitoring of performance standards for the On-Site Power industry) is a rigorous test that identifies technicians with an extensive knowledge of electricity, mechanical, and electrical components as well as their proficiency in the installation, service, maintenance, and repair of on-site power generation systems. This industry-wide exam sets the standard in measuring the skills and knowledge of technicians across the globe: an EGSA certified technician is qualified to work on any make and model of generator you have and are up to speed on the latest technological advances in the industry. This helps advance the profession by identifying consistent standards through which proficiency can be determined. Generator Technician Certification demonstrates a commitment to that ideal.

    Electro-Motion endorses this commitment by having its team of technicians become EGSA certified, thus giving you highly-trained technicians, ready to serve you.
