We have the experience:

Our technicians service more than 2,500 contracted units a year. Our history and dedication to customer service has taught us the special considerations needed for the most common applications.

  • Standby power must be 100% reliable. Poor battery maintenance and inspection practices cause most backup power failures.
  • Cogeneration/Combined Heat and Power (CHP) packages have very high initial cost. These units require maximum uptime to achieve positive financial return and environmental benefits.
  • Industrial packages are typically found in chippers, grinders and shredders. Timing engine maintenance with hydraulic and/or mechanical maintenance can yield significant savings. Equipment failure can cause a critical loss of revenue or missing a deadline.
  • Fire pumps protect human life and safety. Failure can quickly turn to tragedy in this highly regulated application. Exact maintenance records must be kept for compliance.
  • Landfill gas power generation requires careful documentation and continual valve adjustments. This application typically has contractual production requirements to power utilities, so service timelines are very tight.

We have earned the trust:

Peterson product support representatives are experienced and provide thorough coverage to our customers. The Peterson way of doing business leads to high levels of employee and customer retention. Our staff have experience throughout California, Oregon and Washington.

Many of our customers came to us because of dissatisfaction with the service they received elsewhere. We keep our word and do not hold back from giving honest evaluations of equipment condition. Few organizations can respond with our speed or quality.

John Muir Health made a substantial investment in the form of Cat cogeneration/CHP units from us. These were installed at a hospital and serviced by supplier with very aggressive rates. Unfortunately their CHP units began to break down due to improper service after only two years. The JMH staff reached out to Peterson; we were able to repair all their units, and then we installed remote monitoring to reduce future downtime.

Fuel Polishing

Protect your investment, save money, and prevent downtime with fuel polishing from Peterson Power Systems, Inc.!

If you own or maintain a diesel-powered generator with a 500+ gallon capacity, then you’re aware of the dangers of contamination: water and other impurities in your fuel gradually degrade it, leading to clogs, shutdowns, and lost productivity. In the past, contaminated fuel had to be replaced, at considerable cost and inconvenience. Today, fuel polishing from Peterson Power Systems is an inexpensive process that reconditions contaminated fuel back to ASTM standards using filters and conditioner.


  • Reconditioning fuel is less expensive than having it delivered
  • We come to your site and work at a time that’s convenient to you
  • It’s minimally invasive—there’s no need to cut or alter your tank
  • Fuel polishing is green: we discard only the impurities we remove, instead of hundreds of gallons of contaminated diesel
