Power Your Business with Reliable Electricity
Unexpected power outages can have a big impact on your business.


At one point or another, we’ve all experienced a commercial power outage. In 2016, customers experienced an average of 1.3 interruptions and went without power for four hours during the year.1

For businesses, power outages are more than a mere inconvenience  they often come with a heavy price tag. A business dependent on cooling or refrigeration, such as a grocery store, could lose thousands of dollars in inventory after just one hour.

With the increasing likelihood of winter storms in our area over the next few months, our Energy Answers team is sharing two energy-smart ways to minimize the impact of power outages on your business.

The first is to invest in a back-up generator. A generator can supply enough electricity for businesses to keep appliances working and the water running during most commercial power outages. Generators can be cost-effective options for many small businesses.

A large commercial or industrial customer, on the other hand, may wish to consider a microgrid for back-up power generation. Microgrids offer energy security and independence. Modern microgrids can integrate batteries with multiple sources of power, including solar panels and wind turbines to help reduce an organization’s energy spend, while providing an environmentally-friendly energy technology solution.

Regardless of your back-up energy choice, it’s important to understand how your facility uses power. WGL Energy Services and WGL Energy Systems (WGL Energy) can help you make the right decision for your business.

For more information on making smart energy choices for your home or business, visit our website at wglenergy.com or call 1-844-4ASK-WGL.
