What Happened

During a recent heat wave, a local electric utility was experiencing higher loads than usual at one of its substations. They called Prime Power Rentals to take some of the load off the grid to protect the substation.

Services Provided

Prime Power Rentals provided a 2200kw generator, transformer, cabling, and all logistics for the project. The unit ran several times over the last week with no issues and can now be stopped and started & monitored remotely with a cell phone. All equipment will remain on site until the end of the summer.
