Generators, Storm Damage & Repairs -Oh My!

It has been a long, long time since our last post, and we apologize for not keeping in touch. We do, however, want to thank all of our customers for keeping us so busy; we are extremely grateful to all of you!

In 1999 we installed dozens of residential and commercial back up generator systems, because everyone was so uncertain of what would happen when Y2K arrived (for our > 11 year old readers, nothing happened). But since then we haven’t installed that many generator systems, because the power from our local utilities has been fairly reliable. now, then, fast forward to the winter of 2010 and 2011 and then include spring and summer 2011. Our area of east Tn has seen some of the worst power outages on record and some of you are without power as I write this, and will be so for up to a week more.

I wanted to make sure that you all know that you never have to be without power at your home or office, because we can design, specify and install a backup power system that will either run your critical systems or your entire facility. A home generator system, for example, can pay for itself during the first outage alone, the payback, of course is personal comfort, heat or AC, security, and you won’t the entire contents of your refrigerators and freezers! We have several options available and we would love the opportunity to visit with you to get you online.

We also want to make sure that you know that we do emergency repair work and we are especially adept at repairing electrical services that are torn off of houses during storms (seriously, we have had a lot of practice at this service lately)!

Please do not hesitate to call us for a quote or to walk through your options.
