    Will the Generator Come on Automatically in a Power Outage?

    Our most frequently chosen option is the 24kw Generac Guardian generator. These units typically range in cost from $13,000 to $16,000 + GST. This price encompasses the generator itself, an automatic transfer switch, a sub-panel with breakers, permits, and the electrical labour required to complete the installation.

    Do I Need to Organize My Own Gas Contractor for the Generator Hook Up?

    We can connect with and coordinate a gas contractor who will handle the installation of the supply lines for your generator. Typically, the cost for this installation falls within the range of $1500 to $3000 + GST.

    How Often Will My Generator Need to be Serviced?

    It is highly recommended that you have your generator serviced once a year. For your convenience, our team can provide this service at an annual cost of $350 + GST. This comprehensive service includes a thorough system review, oil and filter replacement, and a generator test to ensure it is functioning optimally.
