Standby Generator Program - ON HOLD FOR 2022

Standby Generator Program on Hold for 2022

Due to supply chain constraints, the generator program will not be installing any additional standby generators for 2022.

If we have committed to installing a standby generator for you for the year 2022, we will have supply for those commitments. Beyond those, we will not be adding anymore members to the confirmed install list. We are, however, accepting submissions for interest in the program, and will add you to our list for when the supply chain constraints are no longer an issue. Please contact our Energy Solutions department for any additional questions on this program by calling 970-879-1160.
