Northwest Electric System works diligently to ensure that our clients receive the electric services they desire at an affordable price. We work closely with our clients from start to finish to ensure that each job is completed in an efficient manner. Those clients that are interested in obtaining the installation of a generator are urged to sign a contract so that they can receive Northwest Electric System’s free annual Basic Generator Service (BGS).
When installing a generator, it is important to analyze the prospective space where the generator will be located. There are numerous ways to bring electricity and gas lines to the generator, but Northwest Electric System utilizes this option as it is the most economical for the client. If the costumer doesn’t like the location of the generator, we will try to accommodate the client’s preferences for generator placement.
Northwest Electric System works with our clients’ budgets so that they can obtain the electrical work needed. When a generator is installed, it must be done in accordance with local city provisions. Each city has its own rules and guidelines regarding the installation and location of generators. NES always adheres to the existing local provisions when installing generators which involves maintaining a certain distance from the property line.
The Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is installed closest to the main panel as mandated by the National Electric Code (NEC). In the case of gas lines (NG), they are contained with a safety valve that is located at a safe and comfortable distance from the generator.
Northwest Electric Systems, Inc. specializes in residential standby generators. There is a detailed price list for generators. The listed prices include: generators, ATS, shipping, materials (electric and gas), substrate of the generator and labor. Installation of electricity and gas lines should not exceed 20ft and must be located in an open work area such as unfinished basement. Above ground installation is also included.
If the basement is finished, and client wants to increase the distance of the installation of the generator, there will be a price change to reflect this.
Prices do not include the permit. All requirements and documentation needed to install the generator shall be settled by the NES at an additional charge.
It is our job to help our clients with the transfer of power lines to the ATS. In some cases this can be difficult to decide. In situations such as this, customers should inform NES which electrical lines they would like transferred to the ATS.
The stated prices include one year of free service. NES will provide one free service which has to occur within one calendar year from the date of the signature on the generator installation contract. If additional services are needed, the customer must pay for such additional services as stated by the price list for the BGS/GGS.
