Every year, more than two million U.S. businesses experience a power outage lasting eight hours or more. Because this statistic is so powerful, it pays to understand how much a power outage will cost your business.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that on average, power outages cost $80 billion per year and that 98% of those losses come from the business sector. Financially speaking, power outages can cause substantial losses for the company affected.
Is your business at risk?
Lost revenue is only part of the story. Consider direct costs, intangible losses and how essential your products and services are during a power outage.
- Security systems become disabled, increasing the risk of theft
- Refrigerated goods spoil
- Employees are idled
- Interrupting manufacturing processes can cause long-term damage to equipment and product
- Computer systems go down and vital data is lost
Steady Power Means Business
One of the smartest business investments you can make is a generator that keeps you open and ready to serve customers when the power goes out. Keep the lights on and the doors open. Many businesses have a lot to offer customers during power outages. In addition to making revenue loss less likely, keeping the doors open can provide important customer benefits.
