What Happened

An unexpected underground electrical equipment failure caused a power interruption to an apartment complex. The failed piece of equipment was not readily available & without the use of Prime Power’s generator, the affected customers would have been without power for 3 days.

Services Provided

Prime Power Rentals provided the temporary 500kW generator, associated cable, labor (including licensed electricians), 24-hour coverage & fuel. Our electricians were utilized to connect & disconnect the generator to the customer’s switchgear. The job was successfully completed without incident due to excellent communication between all included parties, skilled onsite employees & reliable equipment.
