Residential Generators

Buying a Backup Generator for The Home in North Carolina

Power outages are a fact of life. When storms hit, oftentimes many people are left without power – leaving every day conveniences like refrigerators, washing machines, heating and cooling systems, and ovens unusable. Purchasing a Generac generator guards the home against blackouts resulting from unpredictable or dangerous weather such as floods, ice and storms, and mitigates potentially devastating effects that accompany outages.

Alternative Power sells generators made by Generac, the most trusted name in residential standby power, to contractors, electricians and homeowners across NC. We serve homes from Raleigh-Durham, to Fayetteville, to coastal cities such as Morehead City and Wilmington. Generac’s residential backup generators turn on automatically, protecting the home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
