Choosing the right generator for your winter event

How Templant Can Help 

An adequate power supply is essential to the smooth running of a winter event. Luckily, Templant are here to help.

As the generator hire company London customers trust, we know what goes into putting on a great winter event.

What do you need to focus on?

Winter is fast approaching, and with it comes a lot of events. If you are going to be organising a seasonal event this year, there are a number of things that you need to consider: 

  • Lighting: this will really help you to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, particularly as it gets dark earlier. It’s also important in terms of safety, as lighting will help to point people in the right direction and reduce the risk of accidents that can occur in darkness. 
  • Heating: this goes without saying. If you are going to be hosting any kind of event outdoors in the winter, you will need to provide adequate heating if you want attendees to stick around and have a good time. 
  • Food: if you are going to prepare food safely, you will need to ensure that you have cool storage to keep ingredients fresh before you start cooking – and for that you will need cooking equipment such as hobs or fryers. 

What do all of the above things have in common? The need for power! If your winter event is going to go off without a hitch, you are going to need a power supply that you can count on. That’s where our generators for hire come in. Here at Templant, we have a wide range of generators for our customers to take their pick from. 

What generator should you choose?

If you are going to be putting on a winter event, it’s really important that you know how much power you are going to be using. After all, you don’t want to end up hiring a generator that cannot cope with powering all of the equipment that you have on site. So how do you go about calculating your power usage? The first step is to add up the wattage of all of the equipment that you will be using during the event. While you might not be planning to use all of these at once, it’s better to be generous with your calculations. Once you have your total wattage, you will then need to convert it to kilowatts and divide by 0.8. This will give you your optimum generator size in kVA. Once you have this number, you can choose a generator from our range. 

Another thing that you should consider is the placement and size of the generator(s) that you hire. Depending on the size and layout of the event, you will decide whether to choose several smaller generators dotted around the site or one larger, centrally located generator. If you aren’t sure which option is best for you and your event, we are here to provide advice. We have provided generators to customers organising a wide range of events, from small to large.
