Backup Power


From the summer’s damaging winds to winter’s brutal ice storms, there are many ways for the electrical utility grid to go down. This luxurious electricity now has turned into a necessity. Without having a backup power source, food in the refrigerator and freezer spoils, the internet is down, and many of the basic mechanical systems that help protect your home stop working, presenting a dangerous situation during outages.

Whether you are looking to have a whole home automatic backup system or are looking for an outlet to supply power to an essential load from a portable generator, we have the solution for you.

Why Choose An Electric Vehicle?

Electric vehicles are becoming a more viable option for the standard everyday commuter. Most potential EV customers are intimidated by the fact of spending hours letting the vehicle charge to full capacity though the average car is on the move only 6 hours per week and remains stationary for the remaining 162 hours in every week. Simply plugging your vehicle in every day when you get home provides you the range for everyday commuting.
