Winter 2017/2018 was a rough one for New England, particularly in terms of power outages. Generators have become an increasingly prevalent and important part of companies' Emergency Response Plans and as a fuel company, its important to look at how you handle the sometimes unpredictable surges in demand that covering your generator customers can cause.
I wrote an article for the April issue of Oil & Energy Magazine that details some of the things we think about on this subject. We've been fueling up generators, utility companies, and helping with regional disaster response on everything from hurricanes to blizzards (and even those random tornadoes through Western Mass). We've learned a lot of stuff on the subject, and it seemed like a good idea to revisit the subject with fellow fuelers, as we round into the spring season.
