What is the purpose of the diesel generators in DeTour if they are not operating to provide power during outages?

The current condition of the DeTour facility does not allow Cloverland to operate it as it may have in the past. Significant upgrades are required to return the facility to historic functionality. However, even after the condition of the facility is improved, Cloverland may not be able to operate the facility during outage events as it must consider the safety of its line crews and the specific areas affected by the outage before operating the facility.
