Generator transfer switch and power management modules by Generac work together as a system to manage the power load from appliances, allowing you to prioritize so they don’t come on all together at the same time and cause your generator to overload when you need it the most. Pictured is a 200 amp automatic transfer switch with smart management modules installed in Oxford, PA.
The Generac Synergy generator with G-flex variable speed technology saves money on fuel by automatically adjusting engine speed to electrical demand. This means it also runs much quieter that most standby generators.
We recently installed two RAB LED Bullet flood lights on this sign for Oxford Veterinary Hospital. Each light only draws 12 watts but is equivalent to 75 watt halogen and has a lifespan of 100,000 hours.
Oxford Veterinary Hospital is the only AAHA accredited small animal practice in the Oxford area. Check them out at oxfordveterinaryhospital.com.
A recent article in Chester County’s County Lines Magazine covered the topic of surviving winter power outages with the help of a generator. We were interviewed for the article, which explains generator options, things to look for in a generator, as well as installation and maintenance.
During a February snowstorm last winter, over 39,000 homes—a fifth of Chester County—were without power. For many, that outage lasted several days. For some, it was one of several cold and dark times last winter. Others, however, only experienced a temporary flicker, and the lights, heat, refrigerators, appliances … continued unabated.
The Generac Guardian series of 11kw standby generators have a new Evolution controller that makes the units easier to operate and run more efficiently.
The Evolution controller offers several warnings and alarms, including overload, battery charger, and fuse warnings, which help identify potential issues before they become a problem. The Evolution controller also now allows the exerciser to run bi-weekly and even monthly, saving on fuel costs.
This 11 kW emergency backup generator with 12 circuit auto transfer panel and evolution controller was installed in Oxford.
Today’s homes are full of electronics, things ranging from TVs and computers, to heating and cooling equipment, and more. All of these have sensitive electronics that are susceptible to spikes and power surges. Surge protectors are an important part of a homes electrical system.

We were recently interviewed for a story on WHYY about the frequent power outages in our area:
Why does it seem like the outages are concentrated in Chester County? Goglia said it could be due to the more rural, undeveloped areas in southern Chester County, many bordering on Delaware and Maryland. The abundance of trees increases the chances that one might fall down and knock out power lines.”
June is the beginning of the Atlantic hurricane season, and it’s a good time to get prepared for power outages. Give us a call and we can help you with a generator that’s right for you.
For a little more than the price of a portable generator you can have a trouble-free standby generator. No need to roll out run cords or mess with gasoline. This Generac automatic standby generator (pictured above) is ready for a power outage.
