What is Commercial Disaster Planning & What Should It Include
Many business owners just gamble that when the power goes out, the electric company will be able to restore
it in a timely manner. Planning for a disaster includes having back-up systems ready for your
company to utilize should there be obstacles to your continued operations.
These obstacles are usually due to power outages, which often come after
disasters like floods, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and the like.
In order for your company to continue functioning, one of your best
options would be to have a back-up system on hand. Some of the back-up
systems you can choose from include options that use both renewable and
non-renewable energy sources.
- Non-renewable sources are those that use
fossil fuels, which include generators that run on these fuels and pollute
the environment as it works.
- Renewable sources, on the other hand, include
the sun, wind, and flowing water.
Your best choice would be to harness the power of the sun and to use
back-up batteries for your disaster back-up needs. This is because the sun
is a constant energy source that won’t run out anytime soon and is
perennially available everywhere at no added cost. The use of solar panels
and back-up batteries not only helps keep your company running during
power outages but also helps the environment since it is a clean,
unlimited, and readily-available source of energy.
