Backup Generator Upgrades

A Self-funding Solution that Powers EPA Compliance, Always-on Resilience, and Demand Response Excellence

Upgrade Now, Pay Never

Today’s backup generators do more than “keep the lights on,” they enable participation in revenue-producing demand-response programs responsible for reducing your overall energy costs. But there’s a catch—backup generators need to be cleaner than ever, and upgrading them to EPA standards can be complicated and expensive. Just not with Enel X. We’ll fully finance your upgrade, funding it through future demand-response revenue, while providing the analysis, vendor network, and future testing to ensure your upgraded generator performs at peak efficiency.
