Commercial & Industrial Standby

The increasing effects of climate change and a rapidly aging US electrical grid are combining to threaten a once stable and reliable power supply. Faced with crippling disruptions to business in the event of a power outage or shutoff, companies across the US are turning to standby power generation for a solution. While diesel gensets have historically been the go-to response, tightening emissions standards and sustained low natural gas prices have made natural gas generators the best answer to the challenges faced today. Mesa stands at the forefront of the industry in providing flexible, efficient and dependable power solutions to all companies in the Commercial & Industrial Standby market.


Is your business or facility prepared in the event of a power failure or natural disaster that results in the loss of electricity? We can install a Mesa standby generator for your commercial building and ensure that the lights stay on during any type of power interruption.

Standby power is a must-have for businesses of all sizes today. Our commercial standby generators can be installed to power any facility that cannot afford to shut down its operations, including the following:
  • Gas Stations
  • Restaurants

Consider what's at risk if your commercial operations to lose power. Depending on the industry, consequences can be severe and will often be a lot more than just loss of revenue. Standby power can be beneficial in the following ways:

Demand response is an intentional change in the power consumption of an electric utility customer to better match the demand for power with the supply. Demand response programs reduce load on the electric grid by load shifting from peak hours, load shedding, and other energy efficiency techniques. Power providers see demand response programs as a valuable service, and their possible impact will only expand with the modernization of the electric grid. In order to counterbalance the effects of demand response programs, facilities and businesses are often turning to on-site power generation. Because of the cost savings and environmental benefits of natural gas generators like ours, the utility companies will reward generator users for participating in load shedding programs. They will pay commercial consumers that use a lot of electricity every month or when they participate in a demand response event. If you have a Mesa standby generator, you can be paid by your utility company to run your generator. Here are some of the benefits you may receive if you participate in demand response with your commercial standby generator: 

  • Get paid to run your on-site generator

  • Be recognized for your effort to conserve energy and be sustainable

  • Help reduce utility demand charges

  • Help increase the reliability of the electric grid

  • Receive advance notice of irregular conditions on the electric grid
