A word of advice before you sign any contract.
There are many companies out there that install home standby generators. Some are good at what they do. Most have been installing generators for 5 or 10 years and are still wet behind the ears when it comes to generators and repairs. There’s one company in the North Shore that even uses lawn sprinkler installers for their generator installations, and we clean up after their bad installations all the time.

Still others will not even call you back within a reasonable time. Most will advertise or offer you only one brand because they are dependent on that particular manufacturer’s co-op advertising money and incentives. Most will tell you all brands of generators are the same. If that were true, they would all have the same price and warranty. Don’t believe it for a second. You can get all the references in the world for them, and the lowest price to go along with it, but you still don’t know if they’re the right company for you.

NORTH SHORE POWER ELECTRIC has always offered their customers a choice of price, quality, and performance. We believe that customers deserve better than what they’re getting from our competition. Always ask questions before you decide, and remember that you get what you pay for in the end.
