    I just had a couple questions about backup power generators at cell sites:

    At cell towers with multiple wireless carriers, how is backup power handled? Does each carrier typically supply their own backup power generator or do they share one for the whole tower?

    I was reading about American Tower's "Shared Generator Program" where they will coordinate generator sharing between multiple carriers on a tower and I was wondering if this is a new idea or more of a standard service? Does anyone know how much (or how little) success American Tower has had with this program?

    Thanks

    **Correction**

    The program is actually called "Shared Backup Power Solutions"

    Thanks
