BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURE FOR A SPECIAL EVENT IS EXPENSIVE, TEDIOUS, AND UNTIL NOW, BEEN NOT VERY ECO-FRIENDLY.
A recent article in “In-Tents” magazine claims that event organizers can save 10% off of their portable energy costs (mainly fuel consumption) by correctly sizing the equipment they use as well as better utilizing the available power from the equipment.
In fact, 10% is a conservative figure when you take into account the features that EverGreen has and how it helps events be greener and save money. EverGreen reduces freight mobilization and demobilization costs because of its smarter design. With the ability to load 24 EverGreen generators on a single truck, an entire festival power grid can arrive with one vehicle eliminating multiple trucks (or trips).
Savings also comes in the way of labor for set up and breakdown. Because the EverGreen has on-board cable storage, the material for the job isn’t handled separately. Today, troubleshooting a tripped GFCI or circuit breaker on an event space can take some time because the problem could be anywhere amongst hundreds of feet of cable. With EverGreen, all electrical troubleshooting is done at the machine. No more wasted time hunting behind booths or tents. Many generator manufacturers create machinery that leaves you guessing on which of the numerous switches, buttons or knobs will make the machine operate. EverGreen is simple to use because there is one switch to turn. On or off.
y correcting the gap between what the event generator can do and what the event load is, EverGreen is a better fit for special events who historically have smaller power needs than the industrial applications diesel powered generators were designed for. Natural gas and propane also have a lower cost per gallon than diesel.
Have you ever heard of tier 4 emission standards? The EPA has instituted very strict standards that go fully into effect in 2015. What has happened is diesel generator equipment manufacturers are scrambling to make diesel equipment to meet these standards. Some sizes of diesel powered generating equipment will be lost because the manufacturers do not have an engine to fit the need which reduces your options for power equipment on your site. As you can imagine, these new standards have caused diesel powered generator prices to jump 20%-50%. Rental companies will have no choice but to charge you more for power rental equipment. And of course it’s more complicated than ever to use.
