Power outages occur often in the Metro Vancouver and Richmond. On August 31st, metro Vancouver suffered a record power outage.
According to B.C. Hydro, figures indicate approximately 710,000 customers of its 1.4 million customers on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland lost power due to the windstorm, making it the single largest outage event in the history of the provincial crown corporation.
Power outages are not only inconvenient, but can cause thousands of dollars of damages from spoiled food and loss of business.
What’s a Home Electric Generator?
A standby home generator keeps your power on during an outage. It’s installed outside your house (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically — whether you’re home or away. All within seconds of a power outage.
Plus home generators run on propane or natural gas, so there’s no refueling. At Ashton, we can install KOHLER emergency generators for your home or business to keep your lights on and fridges running when all else fails. Powered by natural gas, these generators operate even when the power grid is offline.
Commercial Emergency Generators
High output commercial emergency generators are also available to commercial clients that require a reliable, constant high output of power to keep their business running. KOHLER high power commercial units ranging from 6kW to 150kW will meet any of your businesses’ electric needs.
