Worst-case scenarios have been happening to cities with increasing regularity. A city sewage treatment plant experiences a power outage, n-flow and out-flow pumps shut down, and untreated waste is released to surface waters.

Municipalities must obtain and maintain dependable primary and backup power to avoid local disasters. And as towns and cities grow, existing prime or backup generators may prove to be inadequate.
