NJ Generators

At Hanover Supply, we have generator brands that work for localized emergencies or remote power needs. In fact we have a large selection of generators and generator tools to keep your customers’ generators running smoothly throughout the year.

Four Main Types of Power Generators

The four main types of power generators are:

  • EMD Generators.
  • Diesel Generators.
  • Portable Generators.
  • Natural Gas Generators

and these generators are most used as follows:

  • Industrial generators vary in size and are used to back up traditional power sources to ensure that lights and machines continue working during a traditional power outage. This is especially critical in hospitals where power is often critical especially with life support situations. It is also important in manufacturing environments where safety and productivity ideally continue during power outages.
  • Mobile / RV generators are used to power lights and appliances in a mobile home or RV which ensures that you have power sources even in remote areas.
  • Residential generators typically provide back-up during power outages that result from extreme weather conditions or other unexpected event. Like industrial generators, residential generators vary in size and capability. Small residential generators can power a few lights and a small furnace whereas larger ones can power your entire home if you experience a power outage.

Four Reasons for Having A Generator

There are any number of reasons for having a backup generator. Three common locations are:

  • Hospitals – where loss of patient monitoring and/or life support can result in degradation or loss of life.
  • Data Centers – where a loss of data processing capability can result in severe loss of information especially in banking centers.
  • Offices and Hotels – where a loss of power can result in people being stuck in elevators among other inconveniences.
  • Processing Plants – where loss of traditional power mean loss of production, raw material, and / or finished products.
