Standby Generac Generators Lake Tahoe, Ca

Lake Tahoe CaLife’s possible without electricity, but it’s not a whole lot of fun. The sudden failure of the power grid can turn your refrigerator into the domain of squishy purple mutants; your business into a nuclear winter; and your days into an endless wait for a utility that only cares about you at the end of a billing cycle. Especially in the Lake Tahoe area, where the electric infrastructure is increasingly aged and under-maintained, power failures are becoming more common, protracted and more than merely annoying.

A Generac standby generator is a cost-effective, convenient alternative to a gasoline generator. It runs on propane or natural gas, starts automatically when the lights go out, performs a weekly exercise cycle to keep itself ready for action and is permanently wired into your home or business, replacing your conventional electricity supply when your conventional electricity supply jumps in to Lake Tahoe. While it’s usually structured to address specific electric circuits in your home or business, for a slight increase in installation costs it can be fitted with a transfer switch to handle your entire house or business.

    We have our primary home in Incline Village, NV. Our second home where we are now is at the shore area of NJ. Having been without power now for a week due to Sandy, we don’t want to go through this again and are looking at a natural gas whole house generator, automatic switchover. Certainly, not everything is on at once but usually furnace (forced hot air) refrigerator, microwave or dishwasher, TV and computer – lighting mostly LED so low power on that. House is about 2,000 square feet and has natural gas.
    Can you tell me what steps would be needed and possibility of having this done before this winter fully sets in? How do we find out what size we need for certain and do we need a pad for outside placement and is a permit required? There is space next to the gas meter outside the garage to put a unit and the breaker box is about 30 feet, total run, inside (total run going through wall, up to ceiling – across and down to breaker box). I can make arrangements for our handyman or a friend to let someone in. Also, last but important, if I guessed 5000 watt entirely can you ballpark an installed pricing (I won’t hold you to it until after someone actually sees the job and quotes it). Please reply by e-mail as phones mostly out or time difference makes it difficult.
    Thank you,
    Darryl Dworkin
