7 Reasons You Need a California Standby Generator for Your Business
Have you considered what would happen if the power were to just suddenly fail at your business? Maybe you have a portable generator, which is great for emergency power needs. However, it likely will not be able to sustain your operations at the same level as a standby system would during a power failure. Standby systems are ideal for industrial and commercial facilities with large power requirements. With many sizes available, they are capable of supplying power for numerous devices and electronic equipment at once. At Valley Power Systems, we want to ensure our California customers are prepared for the unexpected, which is why we often recommend having a standby generator in place. In this blog, we’ll explore seven reasons why you should invest in one of these reliable power...
Why You Need to Buy the Right Truck the First Time
Thinking about investing in a diesel truck for your business? That’s exciting, but it’s also a decision you’ll need to consider from several different angles. You’ve probably already made a list of requirements and put together a budget. But we would also encourage you to talk to a trusted dealer, visit a few colleagues, and even check on details like financing, insurance, and maintenance.We advise all of this caution because it’s important to get the diesel truck you need on the first attempt. There are a lot of decisions in your business that can be changed or reconsidered later, but buying heavy equipment is a bit different. If you can make the right call the first time, it’s going to not only provide you with better value, but also make everything that comes later much easier.

Do You Need Spare Trucks or Equipment for Your Company?
If you are the owner or operator of a small business, the idea of having spare trucks and equipment might seem like a crazy notion. Once your operation grows a bit, however, the questions about extra capacity become more realistic and tangible. In fact, some of our customers would certainly claim that they need to have extra trucks or engines to work with. There could be several reasons, including:
A need to substitute equipment at depots or jobsites because of breakdowns
Seasonal or unpredictable spikes in demand for transportation or other services
High costs associated with missed deliveries or deadlines
So, you need to buy a new heavy-duty truck for your business. Maybe you need a long-haul rig that can move products from point A to point B. Or, you might require something with a lot of horsepower to pull or carry major loads for short distances. You might even need a truck that can do a little bit of both.How can you ensure you’re going to choose the right model… or get a good deal on a big truck in the first place? This can be a big question for business owners, and particularly those who aren’t used to making capital purchases. After all, every dealer and manufacturer is going to suggest their option as the best one. And with the dollar amounts involved – both in terms of upfront costs and ongoing operating expenses – it’s not a decision most...
How Your Business Can Start Thinking About a Net-Zero Power World
California’s net-zero energy policy – which aims to balance all carbon emissions within the state by 2045 – has produced mixed reactions from business leaders. Some applaud the attempt to move toward climate-friendly equipment policies. Others might worry what the changes will mean for their capital costs, not to mention the logistics of transportation and day-to-day operations. Many are undoubtedly taking a “wait-and-see” approach.Regardless of opinion, however, one thing is clear: some version of this rule (and others like it) are going to arrive in the near future. The question for those in industry, then, isn’t whether to accept the change but how fast to adapt.That’s certainly the approach we are taking at Valley Power. Although we have traditionally supplied and serviced diesel engines and generators, our real mission is to ensure...
