Installation of Commercial Standby Generators

F. K. Power Solutions offers complete services for the installation of commercial standby generators. By handling the whole project—from initial site assessment to start up and testing—we ensure that no aspects of the installation will be overlooked, and no additional costs will be incurred.
We install commercial standby generators ranging from 10kw to 1000kw.
And because we are a design and build installer, we have our own engineering department as well.


Our Services Include:

  • Initial Site Visit and Assessment
  • Design and Engineering
  • Procurement of the Appropriate Commercial Standby Generator
  • Electrical/Mechanical
  • Start Up and Testing
