Back-Up Generators — Do I Need One?

Ontario recorded extreme weather conditions from massive snow storms in the winter; to heavy down-pour causing rapid floods–even on highways in the summer. In Mississauga, a severe storm knocked out power to thousands–about 80% of the city’s 700,000 residents were without power according to Enersource (July 8, 2013 by ctv news). As many as 300,000 Toronto Hydro customers lost power, PowerStream Inc. said 20,000 customers were knocked off the grid in Markham and Richmond Hill (July 8, 2013 by The Canadian Press). These phenomena most often result in a trail of destruction, while the power outages leave homes, businesses–entire communities insecure and in the dark.


SRP Electric has included products in its portfolio to make sure residents and businesses in and around Peterborough and the Kawarthas are well prepared for these ever extreme weather conditions. SRP Electric now offers sales and installations of Generac® designed and manufactured back-up generators. Our certified electricians install permanent standby generators that are wired to your electrical panel. So if power goes out, the generator automatically kicks in (without you noticing) and keeps the house warm (or cool), the refrigerator, stove and television running, the automatic garage-door opener churning, the lights on and the neighbours jealous.
