Are your sites prepared? Don't let weather events and power outages catch you by surprise

When Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast of the United States in October 2012, 48 American Tower sites responded by providing more than 113 days of power to downed sites and delivering 100% performance. 

Our Backup Power Solution provides an affordable way to harden communications sites while reducing the maintenance and operational burdens for wireless carriers. The solution provides access to Generac diesel generators, which are designed for multiple tenant usage and can accommodate from 10 to 50 kW of power. Units operate up to 48 hours on a tank of fuel, and the solution includes automatic refueling, routine maintenance and scheduled service visits to ensure the generators are operational during the longest outages.
