Canter Power Systems

Comfort. Security. Automatically.

Largest Generator Installer in the United States

No one has a larger inventory of in-stock generators ready to ship. While some companies are back-ordered up to five months, we ordered our inventory 5 months ago. No other company can say that.

We provide accommodations for customers throughout the life of their generator system. If for any reason, they experience a power outage and their generator does not operate properly we pay your accommodation’s at a hotel.

Our teams monitor all our clients’ generators to ensure they are working properly. If there were to be an issue, we are proactive and mitigate problems before a power outage.

Our Reputation is Rock Solid

We are proud to be the exclusive residential generator installer for over
400 Home Depot stores and major utility providers across 10 states.
