RG Electrical best generator and electrical service contractor in Indy
Imagine that you are at home one evening and the power is cut. Maybe a storm caused the power outage, or maybe the reason is not immediately obvious. Anyway, what is immediately obvious is that you have no electricity. And without electricity, the comfort and security your family relies on is interrupted. Suddenly you find yourself without a light, without a television or without the Internet. No working home security system, heating or air conditioning, and the power to your refrigerator and that extra freezer in the garage went off abruptly. These are just a few of the many problems that can result from power outages. For many people in Hamilton County, this is not a hypothetical situation.

He also shared the various electrical services provided by the company.

R&G has provided electric lighting upgrades at places like Keystone at the Crossing and several storefronts in Carmel. The company enjoys working with the communities of Hamilton County and hopes to continue these excellent relationships by providing quality electrical service to its customers.
Factory Authorized Generator Dealer
In 2012, R&G expanded its services by becoming an authorized generator reseller for Cummins, Briggs & Stratton Fortress and Generac generators, the leaders in standby generators and automatic transfer switches. The standby generator sets supplied by R&G Electrical are all high quality premium brands. The generators they sell come direct from the manufacturer and are tested before they get to your home or business. R&G does not warehouse generators like big box stores do, so their customers will receive a brand new generator, fresh off the factory production line and shipped to their doorstep.
“We are a factory authorized sales and service dealer with technicians trained to install and service Cummins, Briggs & Stratton Fortress and Generac generators for the whole home and business,” said Ellis. “We are trained to provide on-site generator sizing with software and programs to adequately equip you with a generator to meet your specific needs, site preparation and landscaping and facilities. As a factory authorized generator reseller, R&G has access to direct manufacturer technical support and provides five year service contracts to all of our customers, so you get the annual service required by the manufacturer. We are also trained to handle warranty repairs to the mechanical and electrical systems of your generator and automatic transfer switch. Parts are typically received from manufacturers within 24-72 hours of request, so you aren’t down with a fault in your generator system.
Generator functionality for individuals and small businesses
“What the whole house or business does is provide a back-up power source. Once a power outage occurs, the lights and everything is off. Your automatic transfer switch detects the loss of utility power and communicates this loss to the generator. The generator will start within three seconds of the power cut and your lights will be immediately restored. Now, after the power supply is restored, the automatic transfer switch communicates with the electricity meter and automatically returns to the power supply in the transfer switch, and the generator stops supplying electricity to the house to enable the restoration of the power supply, ”said Ellis. “The electricity will be transferred to the generator and it will power your whole house. You can continue to live because you have a back-up generator that will power your home or business just as it did when electricity was available.
Large commercial and agricultural generator installations
In addition to serving homeowners and small businesses, R&G Electrical also installs generators in large commercial restaurants and businesses where electrical power is essential. “We are working with the Bloomington Fire Department to install a 60,000 watt diesel generator,” Ellis said. “Any size commercial building can be powered by a generator. We can go up to 150,000 watts. Ellis said that a 150,000-watt generator can power an 80,000-square-foot building like the Indiana Design Center in downtown Carmel, while a 12,000-watt unit is enough to run a 2,500 home. square feet. “When we install the [commercial] generator, ”said Ellis,“ Cummins and Briggs & Stratton Fortress representatives often like to go out and commission these generators because of their size and engineering. The ones they pass on to qualified technicians at dealerships, like R&G.
From family farms to large farms, R&G Electrical also provides services for agricultural needs. “Farming will always be different from residential and sometimes from commercial,” Ellis said. “With agriculture, bigger generators [diesel & liquid-cooled] are generally the best to install because of the amount of energy required. The generator can power part of the barn to keep horses and cattle warm, while also powering large equipment and the house. Farmers no longer need to use PTO machines to supply power for their specific needs with a professionally installed generator.
Factory warranty repairs and service contracts
Whether the generator is intended for an 80,000 square foot commercial property or a 5,000 square foot home, R&G Electrical follows a comprehensive checklist for installing, starting and programming your standby generator. And if ever there is a problem, R&G provides warranty repairs by trained technicians to quickly troubleshoot and resolve the issue. “We also maintain factory dealer service manuals to ensure that your generator’s alternator is producing the correct voltage and cycles to handle a full load of your home and business under gas and electricity. “, explained Ellis that very often a generator is installed by a standard electrician. who have not been trained to properly maintain or install generators as we have stated. Over 90% of all R&G warranty or service calls for generators installed by the general contractor and / or random electrician are improperly installed. This means that the generator usually cannot run at full capacity for intended use, and quite often it simply does not start when an outage occurs.
“This is what sets R&G Electrical apart from standard electrical service contractors. Our technicians are highly trained and qualified to install and maintain generators in accordance with manufacturer’s requirements, and they maintain their product knowledge through continuing education courses and ongoing certifications.
Another benefit of buying an emergency backup generator that is often overlooked is the possibility of insurance discounts. Ellis noted that some insurance companies do engage and understand the benefits that home and business owners have in this investment and try to implement insurance discounts for structures, both residential and commercial. , protected by a standby backup generator installed and serviced by a factory authorized dealer / technician.
Insurance companies recognize that property protected by a back-up generator will result in fewer claims filed due to property damage in the event of a power failure of a refrigerator, freezer, sump pump, equipment. agricultural, etc. No more flooded basements and no more wasting hundreds of dollars in food!
