Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac Gives me peace of mind I’m very happy with the installation of my Generac . I never have to worry about power outages anymore. Living in the country could be scary and cold if losing power. Generac gives me peace of mind even during winter storms. In my eyes it’s priceless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking unit We have pumps that run in the spring. It seems like that is when our power goes out the most! We are no longer stuck at home worrying about a power outage now that we have the Generac Standby Generator. Very happy with the service from the Complete Generator Solutions team!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backup generator This unit was installed on October 2, 2018. About two weeks after installation, the generator started running. I thought that maybe it was running a self-test because my son's power was still on (he lives on my property and if my power is out, normally his is also). After the generator had run for close to an hour, I picked up the phone to contact Generac thinking something was wrong with the unit. Before I could dial the number, my phone rang. It was our next door neighbor asking if our power was out... I have only praise for this generator. I am very pleased with operation of this unit. Only used three gallons of fuel for the hour+ it was running. Highly recommend Generac backup generators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An important key to a less stressful life - POWER! We purchased a home that had 2 sump pumps, that could not keep up with the amount of rain we experienced this spring. Every time it rained we were required to be at home to be sure the pumps were operating! The area is wooded so we lost power on more than 1 occasion. Thanks to Lee Legler Construction & Electric we received excellent guidance and we were set up with a quality system. Lee was amazing and patient throughout the whole permit process. I will definitely refer him to everyone I know!
