Natural Gas Backup Generators
Natural Gas Generator
Natural gas generators are generators that are powered by natural gas. These backup generators are increasing in popularity with homeowners, commercial and industrial users due the availability of natural gas in Canada. Although natural gas generators operate in a similar fashion to diesel generators, there are many benefits to selecting a natural gas backup generator. Many homeowners and businesses have an existing connection to a natural gas line, making it a popular available option.
How Does a Natural Gas Generator Work?
The generator consists of a natural gas engine that supplies power to the generator, while being connected to a gas pipeline. The pipeline supplies gas to the engine so it can power the generator and provide essential power to protect lives. Upon a power failure, the natural gas powered generator will start and provide emergency power within a 10 to 15 second time frame.
Benefits of a Natural Gas Generator
The biggest benefit to a natural gas backup generator is that it does not require a tank to store fuel. Instead, it’s connected directly to a pipeline that provides continuous gas to the generator. As most buildings have natural gas as their primary fuel, this makes for a convenient choice. Some select a natural gas powered generator over diesel as a tank and fuel are not required, other benefits include:
- Natural gas-powered generator burns cleaner vs. diesel
- Natural gas is not required to be stored, so it will not degrade over time
If natural gas pipelines are available at the location of your installation, natural gas backup generator may be an ideal solution.
