Never mind, it's back on. Does anyone have a good source for natural gas backup generators?

Hi Joker,

Maybe it's too late but anyway. I think all the backups mainly used in Romania are using electricity too so it won't work. But let's think about the cause of the problem. We had some periodic electricity problems a little time ago and we made several complains to the distribution company and also got a reply from them. Actually they managed to renew one of their infrastructure components in order to support the increased number of users in a specific area. Problems like this were also reported in different areas of Dumbravita.
If the problem is not reported by many people in your neighborhood you may have a problem with your own installation. Due to the fact that the power range is not respected by the supplier two of the circuits installed by Electrica may cause the problem: the overvoltage protection and the differential protection circuits. These are 2 circuits impacted by overvoltage and improper voltage range and they may burn. You may call Electrica to replace or remove them completely and you may use your own circuits in your own box. As a standard they use these 2 circuits in their own sealed box.

Regards,
Cristian

Hey,

sorry for the late reply.

The problem was in all the street / part of Dumbravita, except for the SOCAR Gas station, they have multiple power sources.

The backup that I mean is basically a generator that is powered by natural gas, it's installed right after the main breaker box that brings power to your house, it monitors the electric current and if there is an outage of say longer than 20 seconds, turns on the generator which is powered by the gas supply that you already have coming to your house (for stove and the hot water / heating) - inside the house you never get any outage because the battery bank inside the backup unit can bridge the time from the outage of external power to when the generator starts.

I was simply wondering if anyone here is using something like this and they know where best to buy them.

Happy 2015 to everyone!
