These power supply units come in a wide range in order to suit the particular needs for continuous power. They also serve well to prevent electrical in-stability, such as voltage dips and surges, harmonics, or voltage spikes. These disruptions can cause serious harm to sensitive electrical equipment, particularly during the critical processing or production stages of an operation. To reduce the risk of power supply distortion, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems are often incorporated in electrical networks. UPS systems provide reliable, high-quality power flow for sensitive electrical load equipment and are commonly found in industrial processing applications, medical facilities, emergency equipment, telecommunications, and computerized data systems. A UPS system can be a helpful tool for ensuring proper power supply performance.
The installation of an automatic standby generator will provide backup power 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The system is totally automatic. An Automatic Transfer Switch immediately senses when utility power has been interrupted, transferring responsibilities to the generator.  When the utility power is restored, the transfer switch automatically transfers back to utility power, shutting down and instantly resetting itself for the next power interruption with no action required by the property owner.

UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply  
These options are meant to explain some of the costs in providing the minimum amount of electrical power needed during an outage (also known as "essential loads"). The power estimation for your property is based on essential loads such as; essential lighting and equipment, computers, furnace, refrigerator, etc. Heavier power items such as air conditioners may drain the system and shut it down. I'll help size the unit for your purposes and offer options to fit your budget.

Various Electrical Back Up Power Systems and Concerns:
Size, as per list of essential circuits. Location, appearance and access on your property. Noise, getting the facts on various noise levels. Budget, begin with considering frequency of use. Fuel Choice, Generators run on: natural gas, propane, diesel and gasoline. Exhaust, proper venting away of exhaust fumes. Going Green, Solar make good sense. This system must be calculated by a professional.

Sump Pump, Well Pump, Special Needs with an easy fix.
A car battery, a battery minder and a 12 volt inverter could give you an easy fix for that nuisance outage. A standard car battery can be a 120 volt power supply for a few hours, giving you a managed power resource which can be expanded as needed.  The battery minder keeps the battery charged and healthy, the inverter converts the battery power to standard power, the electrician provides the manageable system with two easy steps (or fully automatic if needed).  Costs for this system can range from $650.00 to $1,650.00 depending on the special needs.

Avoid danger of back-feeding – Use a transfer switch.
If the generator is not properly wired into the home there is a danger of back-feeding electricity. This is very dangerous and could result in serious injury or death to anyone coming into contact with electric lines while working to restore power in an emergency. To provide this type of installation as safely as possible, a transfer switch must be installed that will break the connection to the electric company’s service when the generator is in use and, similarly, disconnect the generator connection normal power has been restored. This switch is normally located between your home’s main service panel and the power sources. Single phase electric service requires a two pole, double throw switch. Three phase service requires a three pole, double throw switch. Installation must be performed by a licensed electrician and must conform to the National Electric Code. Another good economical solution to a power outage is a portable generator. These are available with sound dampening jackets for quiet operation. Because they give off carbon monoxide, these generators can only be safely used outdoors away from open windows and can never be used in a garage or basement.

A typical portable generator will run about seven hours on a tank of fuel so if you are expecting a long outage, you should have an adequate supply on hand. An advantage to portable generators is they are very flexible. You can run power anywhere you can run an extension cord. But what you can't do is provide emergency power to a built-in refrigerator or an exhaust fan because there is no accessible power cord. Although a portable generator can produces 3000 watts of power, which is enough to light 30 100 watt light bulbs, this still may not be enough power in a lengthy outage. If you want to operate a microwave, a toaster, and a hair dryer all at the same time, that is about all a portable generator can handle.

Non-Automatic Power Generator System -   Portable Unit
Stow-away portable generators can be brought out when needed. They can be plugged into your property with a cord/outlet and switch set up. This is a portable system on wheels and will require a person who is familiar with a start up procedure (approx. 4 steps).

Automatic Power Generator System -   Permanent Unit
This permanent system will automatically start up and run in the event of a power outage. This system will also require a permanent fuel supply installation such as natural gas. This system is a permanent installation and will require an exercise routine once a month to insure an automatic start up.  Exhaust and fuel installations must comply with local codes.
