Commercial Grade Generator Installations for Schools

As part of the electrical requirements and regulations set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the National Electric Code (NEC), all schools and educational facilities must necessarily invest in life safety systems, which includes emergency backup power. If you are the administrator or facilities manager for a school or educational institution, it is your responsibility to ensure compliance with the applicable electrical regulations and keep your premises up and running. 

However, backup generators come in a variety of types and sizes, each serving their own purpose. It is important to invest in the right type of equipment for backup power generation. At J&S Electrical Contractors, we provide professional consultation and installation of commercial grade generators that meet the needs of your school or institutional premises. Read on to learn how you can keep your premises safe and compliant with the help of our qualified and experienced commercial electricians. 

Benefits of Professionally Installed Backup Power for Educational Institutions 

Whether it is a school, university or college campus, most educational institutions have large premises with multiple buildings and amenities. From classrooms, laboratories, gyms, and libraries, to dorms, theaters, parks, and parking lots, each will have their own set of electrical requirements. Inclement weather, grid failure, or natural calamities could cause power outages that lead to failure of your:

  • Telecommunication systems and computer networks
  • Emergency lighting systems and security and fire alarms 
  • Ventilation systems, electronic access doors, and elevators
  • Refrigeration systems in the laboratories and cafeterias
  • Sprinkler systems and smoke detectors

However, without the right size, type, and configuration, your commercial-grade generators may not kick-in on time, or function as they should. This could: 

  • Cripple your institution’s ability to run regular class schedules 
  • Lead to the loss of thousands of dollars and man-hours of faculty and student time 
  • Pose safety and convenience issues to your students, faculty, and visitors, especially in the case of dark classrooms, corridors, alleys, or parking lots 
  • Cause discomfort due to lack of proper heating or cooling in the various buildings on the campus
  • Create hazardous situations in school laboratories that handle flammable materials or volatile chemicals.
