Hospitals are elevating their backup power testing practices, and getting paid for it

During testing we discovered that one of our generator circuit breakers operated intermittently and wouldn’t always close. This meant that when both of our backup generators were required to supply hospital demand, the hospital’s supply redundancy could have been compromised if the breaker didn’t close. Once the fault was identified, the ‘sticky’ breaker was replaced.

Ken Herman, Engineering Services Manager, Swan District Health

As we’re running our generators on load [in VPP participation], we can defer our weekly test for another week, because we've proven that we've met the required standard to test them on load.
