Any suggestions for vendors to contact price cost of purchasing a generator for data center?

Secondly, anyone care to share who they use for outsourced generators during a power outage event?

Thanks

If you a relationship with other banks in the area, start by contacting them. Have your IT people talk to their IT people.

This has already been done. The purpose of the question here, was to potentially gather additional information and/or thoughts. Thanks

I'm no help for the first question other than contacting generator vendors in your area.

We have only one on-site Kohler generator for IT building protection; would first go to our vendor, TAW Power Systems, with maint. contract on our existing generator and I have one more local contact that supplies Onan generators; also contract with Agility Recovery for widespread outage/business continuity.

I may be late to this thread but we have a local Caterpilar dealership that builds permanent or provides generator rentals.
