Electricity is a necessity for most homeowners. Without them, completing many daily household tasks is challenging. Today, almost all homes are connected to a vast network of transmission lines, power plants, and distribution centers. Together, these components make up an electric grid. Even so, some homes experience reliability issues when it comes to their electrical services. One of the biggest reasons why is because of where they are located. In these areas, having a standby power generator when your home is off-grid makes sense.
Corbin Electrical Services, Inc. provides residential and commercial clients throughout New Jersey with reliable backup power sources. Here, we discuss the locations where an off-grid generator may be most beneficial.
The state of New Jersey is among the leaders in many forms of agricultural production. In fact, the Garden State is home to more than 9,900 farms covering 750,000 acres of farmland. Farmland areas pose a challenge to residents who live there as many homes rely on older and less reliable rural distribution systems.
When these systems were initially designed and implemented, they were only intended to power electric lighting and a few appliances per household. As society has pivoted to more of a reliance on technology and Internet of Things devices, older distribution systems in farmland areas may not be able to keep up.
Residents of farmland areas who find themselves in this predicament may benefit from having a residential generator to make up for their distribution center’s limited capacity.
Crowded Urban Areas
The population in urban communities has never been higher. Many people flock to big cities because of the jobs and other opportunities available there. Urbanization has increased the demand and necessity for electricity on an already strained electrical supply. The result is more and more power outages and electrical interruptions.
To combat these risks, residents in crowded urban areas can rely on the safety net of a standby backup generator.
Desolate Rural Areas
Power outages can occur for a number of reasons, such as grid overload, schedule maintenance, and equipment failure. Out of all of the reasons why the power goes out, weather is the most common. Lighting strikes may overload electric lines, transformers, and electrical equipment, creating outages. Extreme heat can reduce the output of power plants, cause equipment to overheat, and make power lines sag as the metal in them expands.
Power outages in desolate rural areas are especially problematic. Residents in these areas may experience longer outage times than those located in a more populated location. In these instances, a generator is crucial to have standing by.
