How Much Will It Cost?

There are a number of factors that go into the total price of a generator installation, but in the most simplistic terms, it is the price of the generator PLUS the price of installation.

The price of the generator is primarily determined by the total kilowatt capacity of the generator, or the SIZE of the unit.

Then, depending on the installation location (distance from the main power panel) and Gas line Distance the degree of installation needed (Concrete pad, gravel or simply placement on the ground), the cost can change.

Watch some of these installations to get a better understand of how it works. You can scroll backwards and forwards at your own pace by clicking on the arrows, and can pause a picture by resting your mouse on the photo. There are only 10 slides, but we tried to capture some of the most important installation options and issues.


  • There are a number of factors that determine the total price of your generator installation
  • Some deliveries are harder than others!
  • Certian upgrades like a concrete pad will cost slightly more
  • unlike a simple boxed gravel bed like this one...
  • ...or even simpler like this one
  • ...and this one
  • Also, distance to the main gas line and the electrical panel affect time and materials needed for the installation
  • Of course then there is the size of the Generator - As this 7KW Standby generator is less expensive...
  • Than this 14KW Standby Unit...
  • And finally the amount of wiring required in the electrical panel can make a difference.....Don't fret we have done many of these... just give us a call!

The above turn-key prices are for Standard installations which includes the following:

- Placing and leveling the generator

- GAS will be quoted seperately as it varies dramatically depending on town and type of gas.

- Electrical conduit run of 30 feet or less in length (between ATS/load center and generator)

- Existing Panel should have a free port for the required dual breaker

- The prices are without TAX, SHIPPING, LIFTGATE and PERMITS

 

Careful consideration is given to each and every installation to ensure a safe, permanent, and visually appealing job is done to surpass your expectations.

PERMITS COST VARY BY TOWN, but usually cost $20 per $1000 of total work..

We pride ourselves if providing the customer with an amazing job, coupled with the lowest cost. However, there are sometimes situations where someone else may beat our price. If this is the case, please let us know and we will do our best to meet or beat it, as the bulk of our business is referral and a happy customer is worth their weight in gold, so please don't be shy!!

A good rule of thumb for installations outside these turn-key packages is to double the price of the generator - Which should be your Maximum High Installation Price. Over the years we have noticed that a whole house system will cost between $3800-$5000 for the installation over 90% of the time.

As always, you will know the final "No Surprises" price when we do our site survey - and we will do our best to keep it as low as possible!
