  • 2011 afg Q

    Hello
    we are a small vol dept in northern califoria. With community donations and lots of local support we were able to build a new fire station. metal building with just the basics. interior still not completly finished. we have no tax base. but lots of community support
    we are in need of a back up generator, like 30KW propane fueled (19k$). we lose power very frequently in winter storms. Building is catagorized as an essential services building by the county emergency managment team.
    Is a back up generater an item that may be funded by AFG?>

    Yes it is, but AFG will not fund any station modifications (including generators) for any stations built after 2003.

      Try your local forestry division. They give alot of generators out on grants and some here in TN. wil just give them to you. Hope this helps
      If God be for us, who can be against us. Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the light.

        If you're in Ca very easy to pickup genset from DOD surplus. Options are state forester (if they work the program) or thru state surplus office.

        Gensets most often available will be diesel - 1ph are 3kw, 5kw, 10kw. 3ph in 15kw, 30kw, 60kw, 100kw, 200kw and a few larger.

        Some gas gensets still available.

        The MEP series milspec gensets are continuous duty sets. Unlike anything at the bigbox stores or even what is typically quoted as "heavy duty".

        In Ca - Barstow and Sierra are the surplus main depots but many smaller locations in CA and all over the West.

          When picking up a used diesel generator, you have to be careful about emissions in CA. CARB is very strict about this and it may not be worth getting a "good deal" on a used gen.
          Some businesses are having to put cat converters on brand new natural gas powered generators. Some CARB info here: http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/documents/atcmfaq.pdf
