Reviews for Generator Installation in Minneapolis

Nordeast Electric, Inc

This project went even better than I had hoped. When I called and left a message, I received a call back within 30 minutes. The person I spoke with (Bill) was very knowledgeable and scheduled time for the job the following week. Additionally, a previous electrician was supposed to have installed a transfer switch, which I found out later was not done properly. Later that morning, Bill called back to say he had a crew available that day and asked if I wanted them to stop by. I agreed and shortly after met Sean and Casey. Both were professional and did a great job reviewing the project and explaining options. By the end of the day they had removed the improper setup and replace it with a proper set up. In the process they were able to free up space on my main panel for additional circuits. Before leaving they went over the panel and sub-panel and operation with me and made sure the work area was neat and clean. I will use them again for sure!

Once I decided to go ahead with the project and accepted this company's quote, they ordered the equipment when they received my deposit. The equipment was delivered to Midwest Electrical in a weeks time and they called to schedule install date when they received the equipment. Install was completed within a week of receiving all the equipment. The install took a good part of the day and all went very smoothly. Nice clean job all around. The generator housing cover arrived with a crack in its side but this was already noticed and pointed out to me by the installers. They had a new cover already on order and came out to replace cover a few days later. As a separate item they installed a Whole Home Surge Protector during the Generator install. Very nice work. The Generator started immediately when they tested by cutting commercial power and power was provided to the entire home within 20 seconds. When they restored commercial power the Automatic Transfer Switch then transfer power back to commericial with no outage and then shut down the generator. I had a couple issues later with the Kohler OnCue system and emailed Midwest Electric with the minor issues dealing with receiving the email notification from the generator when it was starting and ending its weekly exercise. They responded quickly and resolved the issue quickly. Very nice people to deal with and very professional from beginning to end.

They did a good job with the installation, and the price seemed reasonable. They also followed up to see if the installation had passed inspection which it had. The only issue, however, was that the electricians didn't put some ceiling tiles back in their original positions, but that was minor.

I’m having a tough time with this review. After calling the salesman came out, covered what I believe needed to be covered. I ordered a whole house generator. Later I was called by the lead person (foreman) of the installation team, stating they would be out at 8 AM on 4 August. Sometime after 11AM I called to find out where the install team was. I’m not sure who misunderstood the arrival time however he said they would arrive around noon. The installation seemed to go without a hitch until the electrical inspector arrived the following day. He stated the unit was not grounded properly and he would not approve the installation. I was called by Midwest’s foreman, informed there was an additional three hundred dollar charge to ground the system. There was little else I could do, but pay to have it grounded properly. (I thought they would have known how to ground their own product). Eleven months later sitting at home when the power went out, the generator started up while I sat in the dark. After some time I grabbed a flash light, went to the switch, turned the “fully automatic switch” on. Four hours later the power came back on and the generator turned off. I foolishly thought everything was OK. Two days later while I was out of town the power went off again. I’m not sure how long it was off, long enough that everything in my freezer and refrigerator was ruined. I called Midwest when I returned stating I wanting the switch fixed or replaced. The women on the phone said she would have the service tech call me. I started to get a little upset telling her “I couldn’t tell him anything more than the generator ran and the switch didn’t switch the power on”. She stated “You don’t have a service contract”. I told her the unit wasn’t a year old. She said it had been installed on 4 August. I didn’t want to argue since it was still July and Generac’s sheet says “Warranty Coverage Year(s) 1-2, Parts, Labor and Limited Travel” After bidding her farewell she called me back informed me, for the second time I didn’t have a service contract, then asked what color light the generator had shown. I said it was green, repeated the generator worked great, that the switch didn’t transfer the power. I admit I was getting a little upset. It was starting to appear all they wanted was to sell me a service contract. Somewhat angry I stated “It’s starting to look like you’re not exactly a very reputable company”. She responded “I work here and I can assure you we are”. I at last got off the phone then received a call two days later from a gentleman who questioned me as to what had transpired. I told him my feelings even reading their warranty to him which he said he was unaware of. That afternoon Devin, their service tech arrived. At last a ray of light, common sense and intelligence. He took the switches cover off, started checking the equipment finding a loose control wire connection from the installation. He tightened the three wires, tested the switch three or four times and it worked great. He explained the operation of the generator spending time to give me the basics of the unit. Had this company performed with the excellence Devin did I’d be giving a glowing review. However with the installation mistakes with the grounding, the extra charge to fix it plus the loose control wiring I doubt I'd use them again.

. We had gotten three estimates for this project, and we found Midwest on Angie's List. John Anderson came out and gave us his company's estimate. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He also suggested we go through Home Depot to help finance this project which we did. The workman came on time at 8am, and went right to work. We had a new circuit breaker installed as our old was was not doing its job.They also discovered that our outside gas meter was venting constantly instead of intermittently, so called Center Point to check on it. Sure enough it was leaking natural gas. The Center Point person fixed this concern. We were grateful that Midwest discovered this. The workmen completed their tasks by 3pm, including cleanup. The last workman explained all the items we needed to know to my husband. We couldn't be more pleased, and would happily recommend Midwest to others.

We had had enough of our power going out, so we bit the bullet and put in a whole-house system. It was costly, but worth it. Allied came out, gave us an estimate, and installed it about three weeks later. They were busy because this was right after last summer's big storm. Ours was more costly than most because our gas line was at the other side of our house, so the plumber had to run the line across the house in a finished basement. They were professional, friendly, and answered all of our questions. All of the contractors showed up when they were scheduled. We would definitely recommend them.

THESE PEOPLE ARE A JOY TO WORK WITH. ALLIED IS NOT A HUGE COMPANY BUT THEY HAVE THE PRODUCTS, TECHNICIANS, AND CAPABILITY TO DO BOTH COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL GENERATOR INSTALLATIONS. GARY DESIGNED THE SYSTEM (SELECTING FROM SEVERAL MANUFACTURERS), ROGER MANAGED THE PROJECT (CONCRETE TO GAS TO CITY INSPECTIONS), JEFF AND ALAN WERE THE ELECTRICIANS ON SITE (WIRING, TRANSFER SWITCH INSTALLATION, AND XCEL WORK). THEIR WORKMANSHIP IS FIRST RATE AND THE SUBCONTRACTORS (NATURAL GAS PIPING) WERE RESPONSIVE AND EASY TO WORK WITH. ALLIED PROVIDES A GOOD MIX OF CAPABILITY WITH SMALL COMPANY PERSONALIZED SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM AND WOULD NOT HESITATE TO USE THEM AGAIN.

Midwest installed a GE Home Generator. The generator project went very good from the original quote that John had provided, to coordination with Centerpoint on a meter change, and the complete installation. They were priced much better than the other contractor we interviewed, and they really knew their stuff. We opted for the monitoring and it is very cool that we get notifications from our generator via text message. In my opinion, they are the absolute experts in the Twin Cities. We also signed a 3 year service with them, and got a 15 % discount. Now when we are away, or there are storms, there is no worry. Very great experience!

They were excellent and knowledgeable with what they were selling. They know what they were talking about and they answer all of our questions. I would go there because they were happy to meet the competition's price and they thought that what they were selling was better and their overall attitude, I just like it. They ordered it in, it came in within a week and they started and tell another company to install it. They were just right on.

Recent Review: This new construction project could not have gone better. Jay was prompt, cost-effective and did meticulous work under difficult (cold) circumstances. Additionally, he coached me on the requirements for the rest of the project wiring which I successfully completed myself. He made many suggestions for technique, fixture placement and fixture type which improved our new home considerably. Dalum Electric has my highest recommendation.

Recent Review: The installation could not have possibly gone any better. I am extremely particular when it comes to people working on and doing work in my house. Moe and his team really delivered an installation I can be proud in a professional manner that was impressive. With a generator installation, they will need to drill a couple of holes in your house and then run some conduit (or pipe) inside your house. I had some specific requests for placement of these holes and conduit and they actually did a much better job than I could have imagined. Everything was flawless and they are also a great group of people to work with. I am really impressed and you will be too. Now, they do a ton of generator installations every year and also preform a ton of service calls so this doesn't completely surprise me but I am very glad I chose them.
