Alternative Power sells Raleigh-Durham home and business owners new generators made by Generac, the most-trusted name in backup power. Our experienced, licensed, factory-certified consultants and technicians also offer routine maintenance and repair of generators across the Triangle, regardless of whether we sold and installed them.

From homeowners trying to protect their family, to mission critical hospitals, assisted living centers and 911 call centers, Alternative Power can help you pick the right generator from Generac’s wide product line.

We offer generators for a variety of backup power needs and situations, including:

  • Residential
  • Commercial
  • Industrial


Alternative Power offers Raleigh, Durham and surrounding areas routine maintenance and repair services for all types and brands of generators. Even if we didn’t install the generator, give our team a call next time it needs to be serviced, and our skilled team members will make sure you are taken care of.

Keeping up with preventive maintenance of a generator is essential to extend its lifetime and keep it performing at its highest potential. Additionally, we recommend changing the oil whenever you use the generator for several days.

Each Generac generator we sell comes with a service contract available for purchase – so no matter what happens, the generator will always be prepared for the next outage.


Disaster Recovery

Storms and disasters are inevitable, but at Alternative Power, we work hard to provideemergency power when blackouts happen due to hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, or other natural disasters.

Alternative Power can provide Raleigh-Durham with backup power at a moment’s notice. Aside from our own large fleet of portable generators and four-wheel drive vehicles, we have access to additional generators from other national companies. We also have mobile command centers, equipment to access blocked sites, experience accessing restricted areas, and fueling trucks with a huge capacity.

Additionally, our team has the necessary supplies to provide all phases of portable electricity, from transportation and installation to removal.

Generator & Fleet Rentals

Our trucks and portable generators are both available for rent. Our generator units start at 20kW capacity and have a very low noise output, meaning they work for a variety of events and functions.

Custom Warranties

Alternative Power knows that each home or business is different. For this reason, we offer custom warranties to our customers – no matter what your needs are, we can draft a warranty that is perfect for you and the residential, commercial, or industrial generator.
