Installation

Stress-free installation by licensed professionals

Elite Power and Energy Corporation is committed to providing businesses and residents with a timely and stress-free installation process. Our licensed Master Electricians and Master Gasfitters will manage every aspect of the installation process, including securing the necessary electrical and gas permits.

Your backup power system will be permanently installed outside of your office or facility. It can be configured to run on natural gas, liquid propane or diesel fuel. The power system package comes with two major pieces: the generator and the automatic transfer switch (ATS). The ATS continually monitors the flow of power from your utility supplier. If it senses an interruption or failure, the ATS automatically starts the generator, transfers electrical loads and restores power to your systems. When utility power resumes, the ATS reverses the process automatically.

Keep in mind that there are several different ways to install a unit. Elite takes into consideration all possibilities to keep your overall costs within budget. Although we will recommend what we believe to be best, the final layout decision is up to you.

Power system placement requirements:

  • The generator must be connected to the natural gas meter, propane tank or diesel fuel tank
  • The ATS must be connected to the existing electrical supply panel
  • Both the generator and the ATS must be interconnected with electrical lines for controls, battery charger, and service feeders
  • Minimizing the distance between connected components usually results in a more cost-effective installation
