Massive generator installed at Wayne County Hall of Justice to protect against power outages

What happens when the power goes out on local government? Well, not a lot – unless there is a back-up generator in play.

Wayne County has dealt with those kinds of power outages, and the last major one – resulted in days of lost productivity at their primary workcenter in Lyons.


The Times of Wayne County reports that last week a $280,000 diesel generator was hoisted into place at the County Hall of Justice. It has a 600 gallon tank on the bottom of it to supply fuel. It can run the complex for upwards of three days.

Colacino Electric was the winning bidder. The installation process is expected to be completed by October.

The County’s social services building is the last to be powered for those unexpected outages. That part of the process is set to happen next year.
