  • Generators are not a sideline to us.
    • We are an electrical contracting company that specializes in generator installation, service, repair and sales. Over 90% of our work is generator related.
    • Because our business focus is on generators (not HVAC, Plumbing or even basic electrical work), our sales and technical staff will do a comprehensive home or business generator assessment and provide you with a generator recommendation that takes into account the latest generator technology, advancements in electric load management, generator placement requirements and town building and zoning requirements.
