Megawattage offers a Diesel Fuel Reservation

Megawattage offers a Diesel Fuel Reservation Service.

We have prepared to fuel our generators during emergencies. Do you have a fuel source when the gas stations run dry?

In the days and weeks following the devastating Hurricane Irma, the demand for fuel dramatically increased while power lines were down and being repaired. This is always the case after a major storm. Diesel was in short supply. Fuel trucks from all over South Florida arrived at the port, hoping to fill their tanks, and the wait time was extensive. In the meantime, refueling stations and sites running on generator power were reliant on the backed-up schedules of these fueling trucks. Cars lined up at the gas station pouring out into the street throughout the areas where primary power was affected, and standby generators shut down for lack of fuel. Homes and businesses shut down for lack of power despite possessing backup generators. This hurricane season, Megawattage will be offering Fuel Reservations, so our clients will not have to worry about diesel shortages for their generators.

Many generators that power up businesses and residences will burn 10-30 gallons of diesel per hour under load. Big generators, closer to or larger than 1 Megawatt, can burn 50 gallons or more per hour. If you require a backup generator for 24/7 operation, the rates of diesel consumption will swiftly add up. When the demand for diesel is imperative, it is good to have an alternative fuel supplier during emergencies.

Furthermore, an untended fuel tank can become polluted by water, algae, and bacteria.

If your fuel tank is not receiving regular maintenance inspections and fuel treatment, or if rust damage has allowed for water leakage into it, then the fuel might require polishing or replacement. This is a preventable crisis, and Megawattage can help by performing tank inspection and fuel polishing services today; however, once again, this potential problem is one more reason why an alternative fuel source is valuable for anyone who is concerned with maintaining backup power.

Disaster preparedness and relief is our top priority. We know that our generators require fuel to operate properly. So Megawattage is involved in both the diesel business and the generator business as we distribute and maintain them. We have fuel trucks on the road and at the ready for our clients who need it when either their standby units or our installed rental units are running. Under normal circumstances, a phone call accomplishes same-day or next-day fuel delivery. Now, even when diesel is unavailable everywhere else, you will be able to rely on Megawattage to keep your generator and your equipment operational.

At Megawattage, we offer Megawattage offers a Diesel Fuel Reservation of 100 gallons, 200 Gallons, or more. With us, you do not need to worry about lines at the station or lines at the port. With us, if your fuel company runs out of fuel and cannot deliver according to schedule because of a disaster or fuel shortage, then that no longer needs to be a concern. Rely on Megawattage to ensure that, no matter the emergency, you will have backup power.
