10kW Generator

They installed a new generator for us. They showed up when they said they were going to, and they did a good job for us. We found them very easy to work with, and their price was fair and less than other companies.

Complete turnkey installation: Generator, Permit, and Gas Line

We have used the services of Alternating Currents Corporation a couple of weeks ago for putting in a gas-powered generator, which required electrical wiring for switching it to the line that was connecting. They also applied for the permits with the gas company. It took some time to get through the contacts for the work from the village and the gas company. It was a very complicated work as we wanted to make sure it did not affect our neighbors. The gas company had to come and verify if our meter and the gas line would handle the extra load. They obtained the generator as recommended by "Generac Power Systems". They installed the gas line which was taken off right after the meter. They installed the generator in a corner between our house and the garage. The electrical line was brought in through the corner space into the generator and the main boxes. There were four crew members with different talents who made all these connections. The work was accomplished as fast as one could expect. They were very clean and efficient. They installed the generator the day they said they would install. We thought their price to be good considering the cost of the generator and the amount of work it required to get it installed. We could reach them at any time. They were excellent. They showed up when we arranged for them to show up. If we have any electrical work to be done in future we would call them. We had received an estimate from another service provider which was $400 lesser than them, but they were not going to get the permit work done.

17kW Generator

Purchased a Generac Guardian Series 17kW standby generator from Alternating Currents and had them install it. Installation included: Delivery and set up generator behind house, set on pad, pea gravel and leveled; Installed outdoor rated transfer switch electrical box; All the conduit and lines for electrical hookups and groundings; Gas line from meter to generator; Battery for generator. The whole experience was actually wonderful. From the start I knew it was the right company to deal with. They were always on time and actually early for the installation. Only once during the whole process they were late, and that was for the estimate. Marty called before his scheduled time to be here letting me know he was going to be about 20 minutes late. He ended up being only 15 minutes late, but I call that customer service just by calling. The installers knew what they were doing and were very professional and nice to work with. I felt extremely comfortable with them in my home. I never felt like I had to "look over their shoulders" at any time, I just let them do their thing. When they cut out the area for the generator, they disposed of the grass and dirt they dug up so I didn't have to deal with that. They had the entire unit installed and in operation mode in less then 2 days. I only was without power for less than an hour to boot!!

20kW Generator

We bought a home generator with turnkey service from Alternating Currents. He installed it and contracted the plumber needed to complete the installation. The installation was one day delayed because of rain. Three workmen used an entire day for the installation. They were polite and professional. They were careful that my dog did not escape as they came in and out of the house. They wore footies and cleaned up after themselves as they were leaving. The installation was as smooth as could possibly be. Marty made sure that he explained the system (Do's, Don'ts, this will happen) to me and came back to explain the system to my husband. Great service. Great Company.

17kW Generator

The electrician came the next day after I called and gave me an estimate. It was installed promptly after receipt of the unit. He showed me how to use it and gave me a notebook of instructions. The work was done neatly as promised.

7kW Generator

We installed a 7kW Generac generator and switch panel. Also needed to upgrade natural gas service to handle the generator. Great experience. Prompt response to my initial inquiry. They provided an estimate and stuck to their price. The village was in the process of changing the codes that applied to a generator and Alternating Currents worked with them to expedite the process. They attended the final inspection and everything was approved without any issues. Customer service kept me advised of each step in the installation. NIGAS upgraded my service by adding a larger meter. They are very busy so there was some delay in the project due to their slow response.
