Understanding Backup Power Generation System Options
The main purpose for backup power generation (that is, equipment that is normally off and in standby mode) is to improve power reliability.

Backup systems can be operated specifically to reduce utility power costs in particular cases, as reviewed later in this article, but this approach can reduce reliability.
