Why generate my own Energy?

Electricity can be generated from many sources.  Each type of power source has advantages and disadvantages.  Most people rely on “The Grid” and rarely think about how electricity is generated.  In some cases, having control of one or more your electricity sources can have a large benefit.  Custom local generating systems allow property owners to utilize generation benefits that met their needs.

Emergency Power

Stable Electric Generators produce power locally on demand when “The Grid” falters or fails.  These systems have minimum recovery and run-time requirements.

Back-up power

Electric Generators produce power locally on demand when “The Grid” falters or fails. These systems can provide back-up power for running limited appliances to entire properties.

Demand Management

Electric Generators produce power locally on demand control time of electricity delivery.  These systems can also help to manage “time of Use” billing and demand billing.

Generator Type Advantages and Disadvantages by Fuel Source:

Renewable- Solar

  • Major Benefit: Free fuel source
  • Upkeep: Low
  • Major disadvantage: Intermittent availability (daytime only)

Renewable – Wind

  • Major Benefit: Free fuel source
  • Upkeep: Often and high cost
  • Major disadvantage: Intermittent availability / High cost maintenance

Diesel Fuel

  • Major Benefit: Stable power production
  • Upkeep: Moderate in time and cost
  • Major disadvantage: Fuel storage bulky / Fuel cost variable

Natural Gas

  • Major Benefit: Stable power production
  • Upkeep: Low in time and cost
  • Major disadvantage: No fuel storage, must rely on “NG Grid” / Fuel cost variable

Propane

  • Major Benefit: Stable power production
  • Upkeep: Low in time and cost
  • Major disadvantage: Fuel storage difficult / Fuel cost variable

Our Custom Generator Solutions:

All large solutions are custom designed after a property needs assessment and use study are completed.

We work with experienced industry experts and engineers to design a custom system that meets your needs while managing the system cost.

Our most popular Back-up solution:

Manual small fuel generator transfer switch.

This system meets most household needs by providing basic electricity needs and peace of mind in the event of a power outage.   This can easily be installed as part of a solar array or a solar array/battery system.

Phase 1: Solar Array including Solar edge inverter and optimizer system

Phase 2: Backup power electrical subpanel with manual fuel generator hook-up

Phase 3: Fuel Generator

Emergency Generato

We list out the power using products you have in your home and how you use those products.  Then we help you determine what systems must go on a backup system.  Choices are often limited the type of heating fuel and water source present.
