Contractor Section

Welcome Contractors,

Our goal is always to provide superior service, the fastest delivery possible, and the most competitive prices. In order to better serve our valued contractors, we have created a program exclusively for you. Please fill out our application to unlock the benefits of our Preferred Contractor Program and we will contact you to review the details behind the program.

AP Electric has become a trusted name in the generator community. We would like to pass along the opportunity to our electrical contractors to become Service Partners. Applying to the program is simple with no obligation. We will pass your information on to residential customers looking for installers and generator service. You will be able to designate the brand and type of generators you are comfortable working with as well as have access to promotions exclusively for network partners.

Program Details:

  • Discounts - AP Electric offers purchase volume discounts to General and Electrical Contractors. We will always guarantee the best prices at the time of your order. We always offer a 2% discount on orders paid by wire transfer or check. On top of all of that, we ship to the contiguous states for free. For more information, see our shipping policy. Please call us at 847-516-8882 from Monday – Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central, for competitive and accurate pricing.
  • Large Inventory Selection - AP Electric has over 1500 air cooled and liquid cooled generators in-stock that we can ship within 1 to 2 days of your order being placed (note a 5 day hold on checks).
