Life doesn’t freeze when the power’s out.

  • An emergency backup generator will provide you with power when you need it the most.


Extreme weather events. Urban density. An outdated, overworked municipal power grid. 

What do they have in common? Without a backup generator, they’re going to force your residents out of their homes.

When your building experiences a long-term power outage, where will your residents go? If a resident requires medical assistance, or is immobile, how will they leave the building if elevators and lights don’t function?

Rikos provides the answer so you don’t have to ask the questions. Generate resilience in your building with a professionally installed and maintained backup generator.


It’s abundant, affordable and environmentally responsible. Natural gas is the natural choice for your building’s backup generator.

Coal and oil? These old-fashioned fuels make for very modern problems. The high concentration of sulfur, nitrogen and carbon dioxide emissions have seen these fuel sources fall out of favour.

Diesel generators, require constant refuelling, which can be a difficult chore in a busy city. And if diesel tanks don’t meet Technical Standards Safety Authority regulations, a company may refuse to refuel your building’s generator.

Because natural gas is readily available in virtually every community, Rikos installs natural gas-powered generators. The controlled delivery of natural gas from a municipal supply eliminates concerns around fuel spillage, storage requirements and odours emanating from the generator.

Let’s make this a long-term relationship.

  • Ensure your backup generator is performing at its best by enlisting Rikos to conduct annual maintenance and testing.


  • Weekly inspections of consumables, battery capability, control panel, etc.
  • Monthly simulated stress testing and inspections of transfer switch operation.
  • Quarterly or semi-annual load bank testing to ensure proper functional power generation.
  • All necessary inspections according to regulations set out by Canadian Standard Authority (CSA) Standard C282-15.
