The obvious answer is to increase your capacity by either purchasing additional diesel generators or renting them only during the peak period.  It is common for sales people not to keep records.  I would suggest you hire a clerical assistant to keep the sales and inventory records so your salesperson can sell full time.  If you cannot afford a full time assistant, hire a part time person.  A college student might be a good choice.
