We will analyse your specific power needs, make suggestions and give a detailed estimate on the work and size of generator you require for your home. We can then install standby generators sized to your specific homes power needs or to your budget. We also install panels and manual transfer switches enabling you to utilize a smaller portable generator at a lower cost and yet give you the peace of mind for any emergency power outtage that may occur.

At Dunn's Electric we install Generac Standby Generators in many rural homes in the Owen Sound Area. Standby generators offer a great solution during extended power outages. Unlike portable generators, they're installed permanently and can provide uninterrupted backup. Standby generators are powered by an external fuel supply, such as natural gas, liquid propane, or diesel and can be set up to supply power for the entire home or just the necessary circuits. We install an automatic transfer switch which disconnects your home from your power utility after detecting an interruption in power service. At the same time, the switch starts up the generator transferring its power to the home's electrical sub panel we install. When power resumes, the switch shuts down the generator and reconnects your house to the grid. This seamless automatic operation makes standby generators the ideal solution for all those needing uninterrupted use of electric-power.
With any installation costs can be a mitigating factor. Using a portable generator can give you significant savings over the more permanent solution of a standby generator. Although your giving up the worry free aspect of a standby generator, a portable generator may be all you require to run the necessary items on the odd occasion that your power goes out. We can install a subpanel and manual transfer switch which will enable you quickly and safely switch to your smaller portable generator if an electrical outtage occurs.
