The Power Experts

K-12 and Higher Education

collegeA college campus is a dynamic setting that serves the needs of many diverse stakeholders. From administrative matters of program offerings and competition, fluctuating enrollment, and safety issues,  to operational concerns of lower budgets, higher energy costs, and aging equipment – colleges are consistently under pressure to do more with less while trying to create the optimal learning environment and attract students and high quality faculty.

And K-12 education networks have had to adapt to increasing demands for uptime while fighting for facing shrinking municipal budgets and dealing with other challenges, such as safety issues, higher energy costs, and aging equipment and infrastructure.

K-12 and Higher education IT departments rely on UPS systems to maintain high availability and protect their data centers from power outages. Colleges, universities and K-12 networks use UPS systems to protect their information systems against a host of power-related issues. IT managers can condition power to smooth out spikes; protect against lightning strikes; and either keep systems running or initiate an orderly shutdown during power sags, brownouts or outages. Maximum uptime, especially in the event of a power failure, is a top priority for higher education data centers. Students and administrators rely on consistent and ready power. And amidst the rising costs of education at many universities, educators and administrators are searching for innovative ways to cut costs. Your system needs to be efficient and effective. Power Solutions can meet the power demands of your K-12 network, college or university. We partner with manufacturers of quality equipment to put together the best package for your needs
