An Event
These days hardly a week passes by without the launch of a music festival, the start of a major cultural event or the announcement of a wedding that is to be held outdoors. These events all have two things in common: they are all being held outside, and they will all need power, such as electricity, in order to succeed. After all, who wants to attend a music festival, in the middle of a field, when there’s no electricity to power the lights, the instruments, the amps, or even the burger bars? This is where a generator comes in very, very handy, as a generator can solve all these problems by creating electricity in a location where there might not be as much electricity as we’re used to, or in some cases, none at all. At big music festivals, several generators are hired from temporary power specialists in order to cope with the huge demand for power. Whereas, at a much smaller even like a country wedding, the needs will not be as great, and just one generator needs to be used to create electricity.

An Emergency
Try as we might to prevent them, emergencies happen every day, and there are occasions when an emergency situation leads to a loss of power to certain areas of a town, or even just certain people living on the same street. While these can be rare, and can be cause by very simple happenings, such as maintenance work, the loss of power can be very difficult for people to cope with. So while the power is being restored, a generator is usually brought in to create a temporary source of power for residents.
