We work with you to build the perfect system for your needs, and review the different ways to own, including industry-leading financing and leasing options.

Permit process

3. Electrical connection

The home standby generator fully integrates into your home's electrical system. When our team arrives, they will review the scope of work, including the generator placement, estimated construction time, and routing of wires and conduit. Next, our installers will disconnect your existing equipment, install your new automatic transfer switch, and connect your new generator to the system. Once the system is installed, home power is restored and connections checked. We use only top-quality name-brand components from GE, Siemens, Eaton, and more.

Your generator requires a fuel source to create electricity. An expert gaseous plumber will extend and connect your home's fuel system to the generator, ensuring your generator has enough energy to power your home.
