Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and peace of mind Knowing that the generator automatically provided electricity for the whole house is very comforting. The installers were very professional and completed everything in one day. Having the annual maintenance agreement ensures that the unit will be taken care of every year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 22KW Generator We had a 22KW / 200 Amp Generac generator installed. All inspections have been completed and it was turned on by Logan Electric and activated today. WiFi connections were activated. We are glad to have it active and ready for use when needed. The unit is attractive, quiet well designed. Logan Electric in Winston-Salem, NC did a great job with the installation - beginning to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Had our 22kw generator installed several weeks before a tropical storm came to town and knocked out power for 11 hours. Certainly was nice to still live life as normal and not have to worry about food spoilage in our refrigerator and freezer.
