20 kw Generator install
Brandon and his trusty helper (Dad) had the system installed completely in about 6 hours. They coordinated with our propane company and SMECO. Extremely professional and knowledgeable about every aspect of the equipment and installation. Highly recommend Powertech for all your electrical needs.

My wife and I decided to finish our basement but first wanted to insure our "investment" by having our sump system backed-up with automatic AC power during extended power outages. This required the install of an integral and automatic propane-powered home generator system. My internet searches led me to Brandon's company, Powertech Electric, who was the first person I called. He answered the phone promptly, answered all of my initial questions, and was quick to schedule a time to meet at our home to provide us with a free estimate. During this visit, Brandon explained in detail generator size and installation options and spent a considerable amount of time mentally mapping out multiple options for the overall install and placement of key components such as the generator, propane tank, switch panel, etc.. Brandon was very patient and courteous the entire time, and satisfactorily answered all of my questions. Brandon then emailed me several itemized quotes later that same day for multiple options that we collaboratively arrived at earlier. This made it very easy to determine the best option from a performance and monetary stand-point. Although I always get quotes from multiple contractors for work such as this before signing any contract, my experience with Brandon up to this point left such a positive impression with us that we decided to not look elsewhere. I came to find out later from others who installed similar systems that we got a great deal by going with Powertech Electric. The install went flawlessly. Brandon's turn-key operation precluded me from having to work with the propane company, electric company, or the local inspectors - this was all handled by Brandon. Brandon remained in close and frequent contact with me (phone, email, and text) to keep me abreast of the install progress and to coordinate my availability for the various stages of the install. And, all personnel that I interacted with (local gas company and Brandon's support crew) were very cordial and friendly. Once the install was completed, Brandon spent about an hour with me ensuring that I understood the basic operation of the generator, the switch panel, and the customized load management logic that was used for our particular situation. We then tested the system's operation and ran it through various scenarios. The system worked just as advertised!!My wife and I are now very happy to say that we made a wise investment with an a-one company. I can't say enough about Brandon and his crew. In fact, we are now utilizing Brandon to do the electrical work for our basement work and for the workshop that I'm building out-back. Thanks much, Brandon!

When I needed a ceiling fan installed, I searched the Internet for electricians in St. Mary's County. Powetech's name showed up first on the list – your name instantly reminded me that your company’s name had been listed as a subcontractor for my family’s housing project. I remembered being impressed by the work of your electricians. I called your company regarding this new project not only because of the information shown on your Web site, but because my past experience with your company was very favorable. I knew for certain your company had done a great job on the housing project! When I called, I talked with Brandon, received a very reasonable price for the ceiling fan installation, and my appointment was scheduled for 2 days later. Brandon was there on time. He installed the fan and cleaned up everything. I plan to use him to get some other electrical work done I would highly recommend him for your electrical needs.

Powertech is a dependable contractor. I managed the selection of a contractor to install a stand-by generator for my in-laws in Southern Maryland. I researched, identified several contractors, interviewed them and obtained bids from all. Brandon beat the competition on all counts. More important, he installed the 20KW unit and underground propane tank and obtained inspection approval. I wanted to deal with one capable individual. Brandon worked with all subcontractors to accomplish the total installation, and even brought his father along as an employee!

The unit works. The installation looks good. The price was competitive. When he visits your site you will note he uses the manufacturer's technical materials to prepare an accurate estimate using his ipad on the spot. He takes training direct from the generator manufacturer and keep current, if you pardon the pun. You can trust him to do a good job.

POWERTECH stands behind their product

Recently I had a 20KW installed by Brandon and he was very knowledgeable, prompt and professional and installation went off without a hitch. He showed up when he said he would and completed the job as promised and on time. He went over the entire system with me and answered all my questions. The only issue I had was an oil leak. After checking for all the obvious causes like a loose oil filter, fittings, etc., I had decided to call Brandon on a Sunday afternoon and within an hour he was troubleshooting the problem in the rain. He had the problem narrowed down to two possible causes and then checked the back of his truck for parts then proceeded to explain how he would make the repair early the following week. The leak was fixed. Although wishing not to have had any issue, it is comforting to know that I can depend on prompt and competent warranty work if needed down the road...not always a given. Overall I am very pleased to have chosen Brandon.

I am very pleased with work Powertech Electric had performed. The installed transfer switch is easy to operate and most importantly, SAFE. I highly recommend this company. Thank you

PowerTech is Number One!

I always get three appraisal's for whatever I do, and the first Electric company that came out and said he would get back to me in four days with a price...I told him I had Powertech coming out later that day for a Estimate and the look on his face was Priceless....I knew I would probably go with Powertech then! When Brandon came out I saw what everyone was saying on the reviews was true..Had a price that night on a 10K &14k...I never heard back from the other Two businesses!...I took my time and finally decided on the 10k and Brandon was more then a pleasure to work with..I highly Recommend him for all and any Electrical needs!Yes, I recommend this dealer.

Mike M. Lusby, MD

Brandon was asked to come out after another company failed to repair my generator after four months. He was professional and more importantly extremely knowledgeable. I give him my highest recommendation and would definitely ask him to cover future repairs.

Keith W. Chesapeake Beach, MD

Tremendous experience Brandon was excellent in every way. Courteous, punctual, hard working, knowledgeable. It was a pleasure doing business with him ---- from ordering to installation was 3 days. Gas line installed the next day (by the gas company) and Brandon was out that night (!) to test the generator and make sure it was up and ready for any emergency. Remarkable.

Tim H Leonardtown, MD

If you want nothing but the best, you'll get it with Powertech Electric My husband and I knew nothing about generators, but needed to buy one, so we had representatives from five different companies come at different times. Brandon was the only one who really listened to what we were looking for, took the time to explain to us how generators work, told us what we needed and why we needed it. The quote was reasonable, especially considering all the work that went into the installation. He was prompt, friendly, and hard-working, and a pleasure with whom to do business.So, in short, if you want an experience that is superior in every way, Powertech Electric is the only way to go.

Viki P Nanjemoy, MD

After using a portable generator for over 12 years my wife convinced me to go to a standby generator. I researched the internet and reviews and decided on the Generac 8kw for the generator and PowerTech Electric Inc for the installation. I was very pleased with the expertise and professionalism of Brandon from PowerTech Electric as well as the plumbing work from my existing propane tank which is on the other side of the house from the generator. The installation of the auto transfer switch and the generator went smoothly. The gas pipleline was installed the following week and Brandon came back to activate and test the generator. It worked fine. That was last month. This past week we had an electric outage in the neighborhood that lasted over an hour. No problems in my house. The standby generator did it's thing and we continued to watch TV, drink hot coffee and browse the internet. We're very happy with the equipment, the install and the operation.

Walt, Lusby MD

Powertech Electrics handling of this install was excellent start to finish. He delivered what he promised, he offered a great price, and most importantly his communication skills exceeded that of most service providers. He kept me appraised every step of the way. Bottom line: A quality guy performed a quality installation of a quality product.

I love my Generac! Knowing it will be here and perform when I need it is great peace of mind.

Stuart, Hollywood, MD

Powrtech Electric went over and above what was required to insure the installation was completed to my satisfaction.The installation required two different county inspections (plumbing and electrical) and getting them done took some time, but he stayed on top of things until it was completed.

Chris, Huntingtown, MD

We ran into a Powertech Rep at the local fair. I wasn't there to shop but his willingness to answer my questions even though I could see he was wore slam out after standing there all day won me over.

The professionalism just grew from there. If he said he would call he did, show up he would and always on time. If not early. He even answered questions on Thanksgiving day!

He help guide us to exactly what we needed and not something more. Once I knew what could power our home he didn't push to try and 'plus sell' me something else. I like that -give me what I want and need.

His pricing and estimates held no surprises. His installation was as quick as it could possibly be. IE as fast as the parts arrived and his schedule allowed.

Plus the 365 same as cash deal is hard to beat. I get 365 days to pay the unit off and pay no additional interest charges. I liked that as I didn't have to hit up my savings accounts to get this installed.

Finally he took his time in helping us select the circuits to be used during an outage and in showing us how the system operates.

Look - there are other companies out there that wanted to charge me to come and give me an estimate. Powertech won me over just by taking the time to treat me as a valued customer and not another number.

Larry C. Lexington Park, MD

I called around looking for a company to purchase and install a whole house generator. Brandon returned my phone call the very same day and was at my house the next morning. We discussed all the options and decided that a Generac 20KW would be best for me. Brandon and his crew did an absolutley terrific job installing the generator and I would not hesitate to have Brandon handle all of my electrical needs. His attention to detail and professionalism is second to none! Thanks!

Chuck D. Prince Frederick, MD

Brandon was referred by a friend and now we refer everyone we know to Brandon. We can't say enough good things about him; although after the first job he did for us, we wanted to call his parents and tell them what a great job they did. He's personal, professional, knowledgeable, honest and has a great work ethic. We won't use anyone else for our electrical needs, and after you meet Brandon, you won't either.

Calvin and Valerie Lexington Park, MD

I had called a few places and could not get anyone to come out that day. When I called Brandon, he answered right away and had a guy at the residance within an hour. They solved the problem quickly and were very reasonably priced!

Matt Chew, Hollywood, MD

WOW! I am on active duty in the Navy and currently living in Texas. I needed help at my rental property in the Patuxent River area and wasn't able to be on location except for a very short specific time. Brandon not only agreed to take a look at the work required, but guided me every step of the way. He also worked an estimate over the holidays in order for me to make a timely decision that would allow a prompt install. And the install, he did on Saturday and adhered to the original estimate. He came when he said he would, did the work he said he would and charged what he said he would. On top of that, Brandon also returned a couple times while I was busy in Texas to test my generator install and make sure it was working as advertised. Brandon and his PowerTechElectric business honestly cared about my needs, and not his own opportunity to exploit my situation. I have 100% trust in Brandon's skill, knowledge and integrity. A TRUE PROFESSIONAL. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! I will use no other contractor! Thank you Brandon!

Scott Tingle, TX

Powertechelec and specifically Brandon Thomas were referred to me for some upgrades to my residential property. My first contact phone call was immediately returned and the estimate appointment was promptly made and kept. During the entire evoution Brandon was the epitome of a professional, who is well skilled in his craft. His attention to detail, communication skills, and follow-up techniques really kept us comfortable. We also had the pleasure of working with his associate Ken, who is also an asset to this company. My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with the not only the end result but the entire process. In my opinion, these gentlemen and this company are what local businesses should be.

Edwin and Kim Smith
Lexington Park, MD

I was referred to Brandon by another contractor. He answered my call on the first try and was very pleasant and easy to speak to. I was in a slight hurry due to a home inspection. He accommodated my service request by sending a technician out the next day. I cannot say enough about the courteous and professional service from Ken. He was outstanding. Brandon followed up with me after the service which was a pleasant surprise. Brandon sent my receipt outlining my service the same day. After his service, I still had questions from my home inspection report. I called him back to ask his opinion. Again he answered on the first call and was able to answer my questions. He additionally researched a question that my home inspector had and was able to give me that information too. (something the home inspector should have done!!) I will completely recommend this company to everyone in need of electrical work.

Sara Western

We had the pleasure of working with Brandon Thomas and Ken. We are new to the area and accepted a recommendation sight unseen. Are were we ever glad we did. Brandon and Ken were friendly, professional, arrived on time, were respectful of our home, did great work and charged exactly what was quoted. I would recommend them to everyone. When we moved from New Jersey I was convinced we would never have another electrician we could count on. We not only have another electrician but A BETTER one and we will use Brandon for all future needs.

Brandon Thomas is a young brilliant man with many talents whom God has truly blessed. His professionalism, poise, and ability to understand our needs when we were not sure, gave us great confidence in knowing Brandon was the right person for the job in our home. Brandon provided a quote, date, time, and delivered as promised. The quote was reasonable and his work exceptionally professional and will be our choice for future ventures. Thank you Brandon and Ken for a job well done. Keep up the great work!

"Brandon is what I consider to be the consummate professional in every aspect of his craft. He is on time, thorough,neat, complete, adept and possesses two rare characteristics not found in contractors today; manners and follow-thru. Brandon and Powertech Electric will be my only contractor of choice"

Anne Blaska
Scotland, MD

"Brandon Thomas of Powertech Electric, Inc. was referred to me for some work I needed done in my home. From the moment he came out to give me an estimate to the day after he completed the work, Brandon epitomized what a professional contractor should be. He was on time, neat in appearance, armed with everything he needed, skilled and knowledgeable about what needed to be done and how to accomplish it successfully the first time. Brandon gave me an estimate on the time and price required to complete the electrical work, cable wall fishing, television mounting, outlet installation, light and light switch installations and ceiling fan wiring and installation on my porch. He came in exactly on his price point (no surprises) and under his time estimate. He showed great respect for my home and the things in it. He wore shoe covers and made sure my carpet was covered when he thought more care was needed. Additionally, Brandon referred me to someone else for work I needed done that he doesn't do. He called the next day to check that the other contractor had contacted me and that I was all squared away. That's called service after the sale and it's rare but sincerely appreciated. Not only would I work with Brandon Thomas and Powertech Electric Inc. again but I'd recommend them to friends, family and anyone looking for quality work done by a real professional at a fair price."

"We were very pleased with the work performed by PowerTech. Powertech was willing to work with us to satisfy our unique requirements and constraints. The crew showed up on time and completed the work in a timely, professional and neat manner. I was also very impressed that the crew brought a generator onsite so that we could continue our projects while they had the power turned off. We were really in a hurry to complete the work and PowerTech was responsive to all of our questions, promptly responding to all of our inquiries. Unlike many businesses today, PowerTech really does listen and care about making its customers happy."
