KG&E Sponsors Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge

Last month, KG&E was pleased to be a sponsor for the 2019 Maryland State Police (MSP) Polar Bear Plunge.

Every year at Sandy Point State Park, more than 10,000 Plungers brave the frozen Chesapeake Bay in support of the 7,782 Special Olympics Maryland athletes who train and compete free of charge throughout the state year-round.

This year's Plunge has raised more than $2 million in support for Special Olympics Maryland athletes across the state!

Natural Gas Fuel Reliability for Backup Power

Reliability of fuel supply tends to be of great concern for authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs). On-site fuel (most often diesel) is typically required for life-safety applications, and many mission-critical applications like 911 call centers specify it because it is perceived to be more reliable. Nonetheless, maintenance issues and delivery concerns of diesel fuel in an emergency, combined with the reliability and cost effectiveness of natural gas, must be considered in a standby power system. NFPA and NEC offer provisions for the use of natural gas in standby power applications that had previously been the clear domain of diesel-fueled systems. There are also many ways to work with the AHJ to clear the way for the use of gaseous fuel in a standby power system.

Historically, choosing between diesel-fueled and natural gas-fueled gensets has been relatively clear-cut. Power density, large-kW application cost advantages, and perceptions of reliability have made diesel the primary fuel of choice for large commercial and industrial standby applications.

However, natural gas-fueled gensets are becoming more powerful and more cost effective. Fuel storage, environmental, and diesel delivery issues are making system designers, electrical contractors, and electrical engineers as well as owners and operators seek alternatives to diesel-fueled gensets.

When selecting or specifying either gaseous- or diesel-fueled gensets, however, one must consider the reliability of the fuel infrastructure, regulatory issues, and how local authorities perceive and regulate these fuel choices.
