Mission critical operations cannot be without power for one second. That’s why it’s imperative for facility managers to ensure they have adequate systems on-site to handle any and all power interruptions. Over the last 10 years, power technologies have changed significantly. This webinar will explore these changes; how, why, and when each type of power system is most applicable; how facility managers can plan to overcome extended blackouts; and more.
