When we talk about preparing for natural disasters and the aftermath of weather emergencies, we are more often than not focused on securing and supplying our homes. However, if you’re a small business owner, you could and should think about transitioning some of those preparation tips from your home to your business. If an unexpected power outage hits your small business, you don’t want to find yourself losing valuable business operation hours or access to data. Even if there isn’t a power outage, there is always a way to make use of your HomePower ONE or SolarPower ONE to keep your business running smoothly.
With the help of Generark, your small business can be prepared for anything with a portable power station or solar panel power station. The HomePower ONE or SolarPower ONE can charge a variety of devices and appliances for up to seven days on a single charge and can be used while being recharged themselves. Here are five ways to use Generark’s emergency power generators to keep your business running as usual.
1. Keep your Business Secure
If you run a business that sells products or keeps high-value items or confidential information onsite, you can be particularly vulnerable to a power outage. A power outage can mean the loss of a security system and cameras, leaving you to rely on the door’s lock alone to keep all the valuables inside safe. If your business loses power overnight, you can feel comfortable leaving your business unattended with the help of a backup battery generator. The HomePower ONE can keep a security system up and running for hours at a time, keeping your business protected and allowing you to sleep through the night stress-free.
2. Stay Open During Business Hours
For businesses that sell products from a brick-and-mortar storefront, losing power can mean losing the ability to checkout customers. Instead of losing hours’ or days’ worth of potential sales, which can make a sizeable dent in profits, use a portable power station like the HomePower ONE to keep the register functioning during normal business hours. You can bring the HomePower ONE directly to the checkout area to plug in any necessary devices and avoid hiccups in your daily operations.
3. Establish an Internet Connection
The HomePower ONE is also compatible with routers and modems that work in tandem to create a reliable Internet connection for your business. This type of connection can come in handy for your businesses of all types and sizes, whether there is a power outage or just a lost Internet signal that can’t be fixed until a later date. Creating an Internet connection can help you keep all your devices online in an office, storefront, bakery, or any type of business you may run!
4. Take your Business Outdoors
The HomePower ONE is completely portable, allowing you to create a power source anywhere you are, even outside. Combined with the SolarPower ONE, you can power your devices while using the sun’s rays to create and store electricity in the power bank. Now you can treat yourself or your staff to an afternoon in the fresh air while still being productive, or if you run a product-centered business, you can set up for sale on the sidewalk or at an outdoor market without losing any of your normal business functions. Create an Internet connection, charge your devices, and even power checkout machines.
5. Safely Regulate Temperature
Whether you’re experiencing a power outage or just a temperature regulating system on the fritz, the HomePower ONE can safely lend a hand. Our portable power source can power a fan or radiant heater anywhere, allowing you to maximize your control of the temperature in your workspace. If the power is out on a particularly hot or cold day, you can use the HomePower ONE to create a heating or cooling source to get you through until the power is back on. Alternatively, if your AC or heating just doesn’t regulate the temperature in your store or office enough, you can plug in a fan or heater without creating trip hazards out of extension cords by placing the portable power station wherever you need it to be, with the fan or heater right next to it.
Being a business owner is hard enough without having to deal with the unknowns of power outages or unreliable connections. With a portable power station like the HomePower ONE, you can bring a power source wherever you need it most. Create Internet connections, regulate the office temperature, or keep the security system operating without fail thanks to the seven days of power that come with a fully-charged HomePower ONE. Working with the SolarPower ONE solar panel power station, you can keep your power bank fully charged while you power your own devices and never miss a beat or an opportunity for a sale!
