Electrical Generator Installations

BC Hydro, for many reasons, cannot always supply uninterrupted power, whether because of storms, traffic accidents that cause a local blackout, vandalism or even deliberate sabotage. A standby generator offers uninterrupted backup for those times when the power goes out. Unlike portable generators, they are permanently installed in your backyard and connected to your home’s electrical panel.

Just as a furnace only turns on when heat is required, a standby generator detects a power outage immediately and waits a few seconds for the power to return. If it doesn’t, the automatic transfer switch disconnects the building from the utility lines and connects it to the generator engine– all within seconds of power loss. When power from the utility company is restored, the system reconnects the utility lines and shuts the generator down.

Home standby generators are increasingly popular, providing emergency power to HVAC systems, security systems, water heaters, refrigerators, stoves, and other household appliances.
