About us

No company cares more about delivering affordable and reliable backup power solutions than AP Electric & Generators LLC. As a company, we know that getting the generator to your door is not the only step. Beyond the price of a generator, we have to have the tools in place to get the correct options in front of you. Our Generator Sizing Calculator is the most in depth, accurate and detailed generator sizing tool you will find. In order to provide you with the best service and technical support we have pushed ourselves to have highly trained and knowledgeable representatives. This is what allows us to offer life time technical support for our customers. All of AP Electric's customer support representatives are manufacturer trained and certified. In order to maintain that certification they attend factory sponsored training annually. This is the only way for you to determine your optimal back-up power solution.


We believe we stand out from every other generator dealer in the industry. Not only do we have the best technical support, best pricing and quickest delivery times we also have the largest in-stock parts inventory in the industry. When you need a part for your generator in five, ten or twenty years, we will be here to supply it for you. 

Our customers will always be able to count on AP Electric & Generators for their backup power solutions. Unlike some of our competitors, we only focus on backup and emergency power solutions. We don't sell log splitters, lawn mowers, chain saws, snow blowers or any other item unrelated to back-up power solutions. We are the backup and emergency power experts.

AP Electric & Generators was founded in 1999 in the suburbs of Chicago and has earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). We started as electricians focused on selling, installing and servicing home standby generators and backup power solutions in the Chicago area. In 2005 we became the pioneers of internet sales in our industry. Since that time, we have grown to be one of the largest on-line distributors of backup power generators in the country. We have successfully served over 100,000 customers since the internet sales opened in 2005.

In 2013 we moved our company's headquarters to Wisconsin. Our move was facilitated by two (2) primary business drivers: first, we needed a larger facility to support our growth and secondly we wanted to be in closer proximity to the major manufacturers of generators. We are now located within 90 minutes of four (4) of the leading manufacturers of home standby, portable and commercial generators (Generac, Kohler, Briggs & Stratton and Westinghouse). This is extremely important during 'weather events' that can sometimes create product shortages within the industry. Due to our strong relationships with the major generator manufacturers we have one of the highest product allocations during peak demand situations. Simply stated, we don't have to worry about delivering on our promises of quick delivery and you don't have to worry about supply shortages either. AP Electric will have what you need, when you need it.
