PG&E's Widespread Outage Proves Bay Area Businesses Need UPS Backup

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

If you’re reading this from Northern California, you’re one of the lucky ones!

Recent behavior by our local electric utility, Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) shows that you simply can’t trust them to provide the service they get paid for.

PG&E has had problems for many years now. It recently started a Chapter 11 bankruptcy process after being found largely responsible for the devastating 2018 Camp Fire.

The Camp Fire has been described as the deadliest and most destructive fire in Golden State history. An investigation determined maintenance practices on PG&E equipment were partly at fault for igniting the blaze, in which more than 80 people were killed and over 150,000 acres burned.

That leads us to the situation Californians are facing today.

All San Jose Dental Practices Should Use Battery Backup

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

Many dental practices throughout the Bay Area have looked for creative new ways to cut costs and improve margins on every patient encounter.

One of the most effective ways to approach the problem is by outsourcing certain personnel and processes. In particular, most small and mid-sized dental practices don’t have an anesthesiologist on the payroll. Instead, they contract one for a few days a month.

This makes a great deal of sense, since patients usually have some leeway in when they schedule their major dental surgeries. Practices can save a lot of money on both expertise and equipment.

However, there is a catch: Those few days when the anesthesiologist is on site become critical.

A UPS Backup System is More Affordable Than a Power Outage

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

A UPS backup system is getting less expensive – and your time is getting more valuable.

Traditionally, UPS has been limited to a narrow swath of businesses. These include hospitals and doctor’s offices, providers of critical data and digital services, and infrastructure firms.

Yes, even the companies responsible for carrying electric from Point A to Point B throughout California use a UPS backup system to protect equipment from sudden voltage changes.

However, UPS systems are becoming more affordable for a broad spectrum of companies. With prices falling, now is a terrific time to consider the cost-benefit analysis of a UPS.
