Professional Backup Generator Installation

Thomas Edison Electric offers professional backup generator installation to keep you up and running in any kind of weather.

Be ready for power outages and extreme weather with a backup generator. Increasingly severe weather patterns and growing demand for electricity mean more frequent and severe power outages. Thomas Edison can help you stay warm, safe, and powered on with full-service backup generator solutions.

Standby Generator Benefits

There are two main types of backup generators: standby and portable. If your power goes out, you’ll have to break out the portable generator, gas it up, connect it, and start it manually. But a standby generator connects to your home or business and automatically turns on in a power outage.

Comfort and Safety

It’s never a good time for a power outage. Whether in a lightning storm or a blizzard, a standby backup generator can keep your HVAC unit, appliances, and electronics going strong for the ultimate in convenience and safety in even the worst conditions.


A standby generator is the clear choice if you value convenience. If your power goes out, you don’t have to connect or turn anything on – the generator knows what to do. And unlike a portable generator, it’s got the output necessary to power everything in your home.


Standby generators run on gas. They can go days or weeks on a whole-house propane tank or as long as needed on natural gas. A standby backup generator can vastly increase your peace of mind if you live in an area prone to outages or extreme weather.
