In order to identify the size industrial generator that your facility needs, you should first start by identifying what systems and equipment in your facility need to be fully operational in the case of an outage or failure. Consider your ideal situation and the systems that are required to be run off of emergency power from NFPA standards.
Once you have identified the systems and operations that need to be supported, calculate the amount of Kw needed to support them. From there, match the industrial generator size and capacity with your required power. It may go without saying but the size and scope of systems and equipment you want powered by your backup generator will affect the size and cost.
