Emergency Power
Cornwall & Devon

Can you work without electrical power?

With increasing mechanisation and computer systems holding our fundamental information we rely on a continuous supply of power. Power supply issues are on the rise throughout the UK, with the South West being no exception, and power cuts are lasting for longer periods. Managing these prolonged power cuts effectively is often too much for standard emergency systems. Battery back-ups for computing are often too short lived to meet the demands placed by ever longer power outages and other processes e.g. food storage and chilling, may not survive power outages.

24/7 rapid response service across Cornwall and Devon

We can provide a secure and reliable solution with a back-up generator supply contract. Our 24/7 rapid response service throughout the region means that if you have a power outage we can usually supply a generator within the hour. We will install a generator plug in point at your premises so that in the case of a power outage we can get your standby power set up without delay. A permanently fixed standby generator is an option that we can supply, but our call out contracts save you capital investment, space, ongoing maintenance costs and depreciation of machinery.

We are the South West region’s number one for emergency power

Ellis Event Power Services have the generator equipment, skills and experience to provide temporary electricity to any venue of any size. We offer a fuel management service for extended running period, to maintain power throughout the power shortage. Our existing Emergency Power customers include offices, 24/7 control rooms, pumping stations, care homes, surgeries, petrol stations, schools, call centres and monitoring stations.

All our generators are trailer mounted

All our generators are trailer mounted and towed by 4x4 vehicles so they can be quickly distributed to the best location at your event site. Equipment is regularly serviced but in the very unlikely occurrence of a breakdown we can usually provide a replacement generator within the hour. Our service is reliable, quiet and unnoticed because all our equipment is event rated, up to date and of the highest quality.


In a commercial context power outages directly equate to lost profit and productivity. We can’t help you see into the future but we can ease those foreseeable power cuts and losses with emergency generators. Whatever the business of your business let us help you keep the lights on and the wheels turning more of the time.

Thanks – Great working with you, all was perfect – we look forward to working with you again.

Redruth Town Council

Please pass on our thanks to your guy who delivered the generator to the Nare Hotel yesterday and also who picked it up today. He was helpful, polite and knowledgeable and helped us in getting the Nare up and running on the mains again.
