Why Install a Generator? 

Don't let power outages leave you in the dark! Install a home generator in northwest Washington and enjoy peace of mind knowing that you'll always have access to reliable backup power when you need it most.

Automatic Power Transfer 

When power is interrupted, the generator automatically goes to work. A transfer switch signals the generator to come on and transfer power. Gone are the days of stringing extension cords, fumbling with gas cans, and pulling the drawstring on a portable generator. No more hitting buttons, switches, or levers. Easy!

Increased Home Value

Installing a home generator can significantly increase the value of your property, making it a smart investment in the long run. 


When freezers and refrigerators lose power, food can go to waste and must be replaced, costing hundreds of dollars. A backup generator can keep food, and medicine, safe.

Peace of Mind

Being able to keep the heat on during extreme weather conditions may prevent pipes from freezing, and protect vulnerable populations. And being able to charge cell phones allows you to stay in touch with your loved ones during emergencies. Now that’s Peace of Mind!

Durable & Easy to Operate

Most models come with mobile link wireless modules installed so they can be operated remotely. And, the generators are rugged and durable meant to withstand the elements. They are installed on a level pad in a 4 x 4 frame filled with gravel for a finished look.
