  • “How to Optimize Generator Installations” feature in Condo Business Magazine

    Grant Farrow , a national service sales manager with Total Power, recently authored a two page article in the November issue of Condo Business entitled “How to Optimize Generator Installations”.

    Grant highlights four major factors that will affect generator or service costs in all condominiums. They include: 1)  the make, model and kilowatt rating of the generator  2) the location of the generator 3) the load bank connection points and 4) room access and cleanliness.

    By considering these four factors, Grant suggests it’s possible for developers and property managers to minimize the annual service costs associated with generator maintenance in condominium buildings.

    To read the full article please visit  Condo Business and click through to pages 54 and 55.
