Across Georgia all types of industries rely on continuous and backup power supplies to respond to the unexpected. Whether you’re cleaning up after a powerful storm or are experiencing extended blackout conditions, it pays to have access to a complete inventory of emergency generators for rent. Since 2009 Yancey Power has operated a plan to provide improved rental and distribution of power generation and temperature control equipment during a time of natural disaster in Georgia and the southeastern U.S.

Although any type of natural disaster can be applied to the plan, YPS is called on frequently by customers in Georgia to be their power generation and temperature control resource during hurricane season. Tornados, floods and ice storms also affect businesses and municipalities across Georgia on a frequent basis. 24/7, 365-days-a-week, our experienced team is on call to deliver the emergency generator solutions required to keep your operation fully powered and regulatory compliant.

During a natural disaster, Yancey Power customers rely heavily on getting the needed equipment sourced and delivered in an expedient manner. No matter the type of industry or size and scope of your company, we keep a diverse range of emergency generator rentals in stock to quickly and efficiently meet your needs. Yancey Power's Natural Disaster First Responder Plan allows our Reps to provide our customers with rental confirmation details in a matter of minutes instead of hours.

YPS's First Responder Team of Rental Specialists and support staff will be dispatched to a centralized command center location to field telephone calls and inquiries, to complete rental transactions from start to finish, and to dispatch equipment immediately. This process will happen as the disaster is in process. For example, as the final path of a hurricane is announced and predicted to make landfall, the team will be dispatched - even if it is 2 a.m. The goal of Yancey Power is to get the needed resources - power generation units and temperature control equipment - into the hands of businesses and governmental response teams in the affected areas as quickly as possible.
