Generac Industrial Power Releases Tour Dates for the 2016-17 Power Trip Experience

By Generac PR Staff June 7, 2016


Generac Industrial Power’s Power Trip Experience is about to embark on its 14th tour through North America. The interactive tour will give consulting specifying engineers, electrical contractors and facility managers an opportunity to view Generac’s expansive portfolio of power products firsthand.

Highlighted by Bi-Fuel™ generators, paralleling advancements, natural gas technologies and transfer switches, this 53-foot fully interactive trailer will travel now through March 2017, making educational stops at Generac Industrial Power Distributors throughout North America. Over the past 13 years, the trailer has traveled more than 1 million miles and welcomed more than 23,000 visitors.

Generac’s Modular Power Systems (MPS) will highlight this year’s Power Trip Experience tour. MPS is an integrated approach to generator paralleling that is cost competitive with large individual generators and traditional paralleling systems. It offers increased redundancy, flexibility and scalability advantages.

Additionally, the Power Trip Experience will share details of Generac’s contributions to natural gas technologies, including its industry-wide innovations and being the first to market with new solutions. For its contributions, Generac was honored, in back-to-back years, with the prestigious Frost & Sullivan 2014 & 2015 North American Natural Gas Generator Set Company of the Year.

The Power Trip Experience features innovative back-up power solutions and technologies, including:

  • Two fully functioning diesel generators featuring MPS paralleling technologies;
  • A full-size model of a Generac 600 kW Bi-Fuel generator, which is the industry’s only bi-fuel generator that comes EPA-compliant from the factory; and
  • A full line of transfer switches and generator controllers that meet varying needs, from light industrial applications to demanding critical installations.

“This tour accommodates all of our important customers who are involved with emergency and standby backup power generation, providing each audience a unique experience,” said Rick Apple, vice president of commercial & industrial sales, Generac Power Systems. “The hands-on exposure will give all attendees a clear demonstration on how our products can work for them and their clients.”

Live MPS demonstrations are provided in a 16-seat theater. Also important, visitors can participate in the Generac Professional Development Seminar Series (PDSS), accredited by the Milwaukee School of Engineering, to earn CEUs or PDHs.
