Purchasing a generator is a wise investment for hotels, hospitals, shopping malls, big factories and even homes as a backup power in case of failure. Uninterrupted power is vital for the industrial plants.
Are there various types of generators?
There are different kinds of generators depending on the needs of the owner. Mostly, the portable type is used where access to the main power is difficult. This type is the recreational and residential generator (intended for home use). The inverter type uses gasoline to run and is very quiet.
