What are the Hurdles to Getting Your Emergency Power Supply?
When you start looking into getting an emergency power supply you will likely find that transformers are not available. Many utility companies’ stock various transformers, but commonly cannot get them up and running for you for fourteen weeks or more. So, you may need to supply your own transformer in order to get your emergency power.

That’s where VCM Solutions comes in. We can provide you with the requirement you need to get up and running right away, including resources, expertise, and network connections. We can provide you with step-up and step-down transformers for low and medium voltage applications.
With our help, you can be up and running months earlier than if you worked with just the utility company. You don’t have to purchase the equipment outright if your need will be short-term either. We can provide you with rental or even used equipment to meet your needs. Or, we can offer new-build transformers that conform to your local distribution company’s standards. Instead of waiting for them, have us build the equipment faster at the same price, or even for a cheaper price, depending on exactly what you need.
