It’s not new news, but it is important. As outlined in the California Air Resources Board Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM), portable tier 0 diesel engines rated at 50 bhp or greater were to be completely removed from service as of January 1st 2017.

In the aftermath of the recent tragedy in Oakland, we’re anticipating, as are many others, that municipalities will step up their facilities inspection efforts. Of course, we support improved safety and adherence to environmental standards. We also want you, our valued customers to know we are here to help you be prepared.

When we talk with our customers about our new remote generator monitoring solution, RemoteGP™, they have a hard time believing how much time and money they stand to save. I suppose that is what happens when a new way of doing things comes along. As air travel became convenient, demand for train tickets dropped.

And now that you can monitor your generators from anywhere, the cost of running around to check on them, and the risk of not knowing what problems they may have, are relics of the past. Let’s take a quick look at just six of the ways that implementing RemoteGP will save time and money:
1) Free 1st Year Monitoring. For orders placed before December 31st 2016, your first 12 months of monitoring will be free of charge! That’s $300 in first year savings per generator. Contact us for details.
2) Instant Air Quality Reports.

When installed on all generators, AQMD reports can be printed for all managed generators from a central location. [Read more…]
