Cost of Power Outage – Case Study Rocky Creek Veterinary Hospital

How much would eight hours of downtime cost your business?

We cannot answer this question as it is different for each business. However we know that losing power for even a few hours can mean thousands of dollars in lost revenue. You can determine that for yourself considering the some of the circumstances in image below.


Generac revolutionized the commercial generator market with the first standby generators, powerful enough to back your entire business without the cost of expensive configured systems. Here the story and case study for Rocky Creek Veterinary Hospital,

The Upstate of South Carolina is a beautiful area home to many businesses. It is also home to severe thunderstorms in the summer and ice storms in the winter. As the weather warms up, as memories of recent winter storms melt away, it’s tempting to forget the cold, hard dread that the lights might go out. Most of the Upstate felt the effects of no power due to ice and wind. But the potential for storm related power outages is a year-round sleeping trigger. While you cannot prevent power outages, you can prepare for them.

As a business owner I know just how important having power is to stay profitable and keep that competitive edge, so do the folks at Rocky Creek Vet here in the Upstate. After losing power for nearly 18 hours caused by a car that had crashed into a utility pole several blocks away, they quickly learned they needed backup power ASAP. Virtually every function of their business is dependent in some way on a power source. From the call takers to the employee access to web tools, from the kennel housing that needs lighting and Air Conditioning and the power to sustain surgical procedures, everything needs power.

In a competitive world, assuring their clients continued convenient service provides Rocky Creek Vet an advantage over many of their competitors who would be at the mercy of their local power grid. Any loss of power takes them out of communication with their clients and their employees. And power is needed to keep computer servers up and running.

As peace of mind Rocky Creek Veterinary Hospital installed an 80KW Generac Generator from Carolina Generators.  And Rocky Creek Vet plans to install generators at any future locations.
