The Environmental Impact of Portable Generators Australia

Environmental Impact of Portable Generators

When thinking about using a portable generator, there are environmental factors to consider. This is the case no matter the application. Whether for large-scale use in mining or construction, or outdoor events and camping trips, it’s a good idea to understand the environmental impact you’re having. Not all portable generators are made equal. You might end up with a machine not manufactured to the high standards you’d expect. Diesel Generation Australia is here to help. Based in Tasmania, our experts rent and sell only the highest quality generators. Here are a few factors you might want to consider before hiring or buying elsewhere.

Energy Efficiency

Some portable generators are not designed with energy efficiency in mind and can waste too much fuel. This usually results in higher emissions and increased fuel costs. Speak to us about choosing the right generator for your application. That way, you know you’re using the most energy-efficient portable generator possible. This is how you can make sure you’re not using too much unnecessary power.

Air Pollution

There are a lot of generators that emit a higher number of pollutants into the immediate atmosphere than necessary. Those such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides contribute to the negative effects of air pollution and can become a public health issue. Carbon monoxide is of particular concern for those in close proximity as it is a colourless and odourless gas that can be deadly if it accumulates in an enclosed space. It is, therefore, a good idea to find an option that suits your needs. If your requirements dictate the need to use the generator in an enclosed space, talk to us about what best suits your project.

Fuel Consumption

As mentioned previously, not all generators are made to the same standards. Unfortunately, there are products on the market which will consume greater amounts of fuel than is necessary. We can help you choose a fuel-powered generator that consumes as little as possible but still suits your requirements. Additionally, there are those who would prefer alternatives to diesel and petrol. We sell and hire a range of solar backup generator options to suit such needs.
