Confused about "continuous standby" rating

[ Edited ]

I'm evaluating the backup generator request for a municipal pumping station. It calls for a generator rated for "Continuous Standby service". Is that just another way of saying Continuous power, or is it a Continuous rating with a limit on # of hours per year, or something else entirely?


I am familiar with the Continuous, Prime, and Standby power ratings, but have not seen Continuous Standby.
