For the past ten years, Generac Industrial Power has hosted the Engineering Power Symposium with its distributors and has recognized specific projects that exemplify the nexus of innovative design, client satisfaction, and total value.
All 30 Generac Industrial distributors identified flagship projects installed and commissioned in the last year for this top honor.
In Washington DC, KG&E worked with Ennis Electric, an industry leading electrical contractor in the Washington, DC region and Smithgroup JJR, an integrated design firm that creates exceptional design solutions, to design the backup power system for the Museum of the Bible. The 430,000-square-foot Museum of the Bible is an innovative, global, educational institution that aims to provide an unparalleled experience by creating one of the world’s most technological advanced museums.
KG&E’s Technical Sales Representative, Gary Fink and Generac’s Power Solutions Manager, John Sharpe provided innovative options that Smithgroup incorporated into the design of eight (8) natural gas generators with integrated paralleling installed in the side of the downtown Washington museum building.
In addition to the Museum of the Bible being selected as 1 of the 3 finalists for the Project of the Year Award, another finalist was KG&E's multiple unit application at the Eastern Mennonite University near Harrisonburg in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley. The school was looking for a backup generator system that could best take advantage of demand response financial incentives and a 3 X 500kW solution was accepted to feed the entire campus via a transformer at the generator site to boost 480 to 25kV.
KG&E would like to thank our great partners supporting the Generac product and the entire KG&E team for their hard work and dedication.
