    Love my Generac. Works just as advertised. Quick shipping from AP Electric and no issues on the install. Recommend buying the concrete pad saves a lot of hassle.

    After losing power due to Hurricane Mathew, I decided I was not going to live through that again. 3 days in a hotel with a family of 5 not fun. I ordered my generator on Monday and was delivered on Wednesday. Not installed yet, but AP Electric did there job in getting it to me

    I live in North Carolina. I ordered my Generac 7042 22kW Guardian Generator from AP Electric & Generators on Friday Afternoon on 9/23/16 (Friday). It was delivered in the afternoon 9/26/16 (Monday). Electrician finished installation on 9/28/16. Then here comes Hurricane Mathew. Generator kicks on October 7. It is now October 11 and the generator has been running constantly since the 7. Absolutely no issues. I really don't care when power is restored as I have as if there was no power outage. Very big thumbs up.
