"South Park" fans will have to wait until next week for a new episode. A power outage at South Park Studios Tuesday night prevented the crew from finishing tonight's planned episode. The South Park crew is known to be on a ridiculously tight schedule. "It sucks to miss an air date," said co-creator Trey Parker in the release. "But after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen." Just think all of this could be avoided with a backup generator.

The USA Today Headline 3 days ago read, "Power outage delayed Game 3 in Detroit". According to the article, a nearby substation went offline. Pitcher John Lackey was none too happy with the outage as he stood with his arm wrapped in a towel. The article reminded us of the Super Bowl power outage that happened last February. A backup generator would have been helpful in both instances. Be sure to ask us how to keep the lights on during your favorite sporting event!

No power means lost revenue! 

Posted by i7MEDIA Support Friday, August 16, 2013 12:03:00 PM Categories: Outages

When businesses lose power it means lost revenue! According to Dr. Massoud Amin, director of the Technological Leadership Institute at the University of Minnesota, updating the electrical grid would save an estimated $40 billion per year. That number alone is staggering! However, consider this, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers America’s infrastructure received a D+ rating in 2013. This has been unchanged since 2009. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows an increasing number of power outages over the last decade. The EIA reports that there were 349 outages affecting 50,000 or more customers annually from 2004 – 2009. Since our infrastructure is not being upgraded it is important as a business owner that you focus on protecting yourself with a backup generator. How much of that $40 billion can you afford to lose? Call us today at (816) 854-9992 for more details.
