HOME BACKUP POWER

An automatic standby backup generator is a backup electrical system that operates whether you are home or away.

Within seconds of an outage, it automatically supplies power directly to your home’s electrical circuit breaker box.

After utility power returns, the generator shuts itself off and waits for the next outage. It operates on natural gas or liquid propane gas and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.

2020 Industry Excellence Award.

The awards ceremony, held during the Generac Annual Conference, presented this prestigious award to Canter Power Systems. This recognition was due to Canter’s tremendous and consistent growth, dedication to customer services and overall sales for 2020.

We were selected from over 3,000 other national dealers to receive this 2020 Generac Power Pro Premier Industry Excellence Award for being the top highest national ranking Generac dealer in the United States.

overnight accommodations.

Canter Power Systems will reimburse you up to $150 per night for your lodging expense until your power is restored.

The generator must be continuously maintained by us for the inconvenience guarantee to be in effect.

How's that for peace of mind?

2021 Hurricane Season Begins June 1st.

2020 was a historic and record-breaking year.

Last year over 28 million people were affected by power outages caused by tropical weather. The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active and the fifth costliest Atlantic hurricane season on record. In addition, it was the fifth consecutive above-average season from 2016 onward. The season featured a total of 31 tropical cyclones, all but one of which became a named storm.

On December 9, 2020, the Tropical Storm Risk issued an extended-range forecast for the 2021 season, predicting activity that is above normal. In this report, the organization predicts 16 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. The main factor behind their prediction is the expected development of a weak La Niña by the third quarter of 2021.

Our generator specialist will walk you through a very simple process of letting us see the same items they would be looking at if they were performing an in-home estimate. At the conclusion of your virtual estimate, we will email you all the information you will need to make an informed decision about a generator system for your home.

An in-home estimate takes approximately an hour and ½ and of course, our generator specialists have been trained in the latest CDC guidelines for in-home visits.
