How does it work?

An automatic standby generator keeps your business open and powered up. It starts automatically within seconds of a power outage, whether it happens during normal business hours or in the middle of the night. 

These generators run on propane, natural gas, or diesel fuel, whatever's available or most convenient at your site. They are installed outside of your business and take up about as much space as a large air conditioner. 

Your business, powered up and safe, 24/7.

Computers and Cash Registers

Don’t worry about the cash drawer not opening. You’re safeguarded. So are your electronic records, inventory and employee information.



You need them even in the daytime. Whether you’re in the midst of a storm or its aftermath, your lights will be a bright spot for your customers.


Coolers, Refrigerators and Freezers

Convenience stores, gas stations, and restaurants rely on fresh, delicious food to keep their customers happy and coming back for more. Your backup generator will ensure that your food inventory stays cool and safe.

Gas Pumps

No power, no fuel. So if the competition gets knocked out, and you’re the only one pumping gas: "ka-ching, ka-ching." All you need is a backup generator system. Your customers will be happy, and you'll keep that revenue stream flowing. 


Whether it’s an arctic blast or a heat wave, your HVAC system is necessary to keep your customers and staff comfortable and your building protected. And we keep your HVAC up and running.


Security Systems

Cameras, motion detectors, fire alarm systems. They all need electricity to function. With an automatic generator system, you can sleep easy knowing that your business is protected 24/7 with backup power. 

Weekly Self-Test

Each week, your Generac automatic standby generator from Better Power will start itself up automatically and run for about 15 minutes. This weekly self-test ensures that your generator is ready to act in the event of a power outage.


Remote Monitoring (optional)

With remote monitoring, you will be able to monitor the status of your generator from any computer, iPhone, Android device, or tablet. The service can be configured to send out automatic text or Email alerts when it's time for maintenance or if there's anything preventing the unit from functioning perfectly. 

So, how much is this investment going to cost?

A backup generator system can pay for itself in one or two outages.

Every year, more than two million U.S. businesses experience a power outage lasting eight hours or more.

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that on average, power outages cost $80 billion per year, and that 98 percent of those losses come from the
business sector.

If your sales are anything like the businesses shown here, your generator system could pay for itself in just a couple of power outages.
