How It Works

R.B. Thomas Electric is an authorized distributor of the commercial and residential standby generators manufactured by Generac Power Systems, Inc.

Our factory-certified personnel will assist you in selecting the appropriate generator for your home and provide complete installation, startup and natural gas certification and hookup, as well as on-site training and scheduled maintenance. Generac generators offer quiet operation and are available with air- or liquid-cooled engines.

A residential generator can typically be installed in one day… and provide security for a lifetime.

Annual and semi-annual maintenance of your standby generator will give you the peace of mind knowing that any time you are faced with a power outage your generator is ready step-in and supply necessary power to your home. The consequence of a power outage can exceed 10-times the cost of regular maintenance.

R.B Thomas Electric has developed maintenance practices that meet or exceed manufacturer recommendations. Our comprehensive inspections focus on early detection of problems, as well as oil and filter changes. Standard operating procedures guide our technicians, each of whom are encouraged to take whatever time necessary to thoroughly evaluate the generator and its surrounding sub-systems. Our Maintenance agreements are a way to ensure your generator will be operating properly when you need it most.
