Signs You Need an Electrician in Berkeley

When should you reach out to us? Here are some signs that you need a residential or commercial electrician in Berkeley: 

  • Blown fuses: You don’t need to wrestle with fuses or juggle which appliances you use at the same time. An electrician can adjust your circuit so you can use the outlets and appliances you want to, at the same time. 
  • Flickering lights: Lights should not flicker, and this problem may be a sign of a few different electrical issues. You may also damage electronics that are plugged into the circuit that is flickering. 
  • Sparks: Sparks are a serious safety issue. Do not approach sparking wires, outlets or appliances.
  • Unusual heat: Heat where it shouldn’t be, like at an outlet, is a sign that something is wrong with your electrical system. 
  • Useless switches: Why doesn’t the light turn on when you flick a switch? Or why is there a switch that doesn’t control anything? We can fix it. 
  • Shocks: You should not ever get shocked by properly functioning electrical equipment. If you have received a shock, the same thing could create a larger one. You should get the help of an electrician right away. 
  • New lighting: When you need new lighting installed, especially in areas that don’t currently have lighting, an electrician can help. 
  • Security systems: Many security systems need dedicated wiring run to them. Afterall, you wouldn’t want a system that can be easily disconnected, or it would be easy to defeat.

We offer quality Generac generators to ensure that your home is safe during a power outage. These industry leading generators are the most reliable solution to your back-up generator in Berkeley needs.

We will work with you to find the right size unit that keep your lights on and wallet happy.

Electric Vehicle Charging in Berkeley

Commercial EV Charging

Are you considering getting an electric vehicle charging station installed on your residential or commercial property? Gentec can help. While the popularity of electric vehicles is undeniable, the cost can be an understandable concern for home and property owners. So long as you plan to allow your charging station to be accessible to the public (even if you will also be charging your own fleet there) Gentec Services can completely eliminate the hurdle of cost for you. 

We work with investors who front the entire upfront cost of charging stations, including the electrical bills and maintenance, in return for charging for access much like at a gas station. This saves you the upfront investment, all installation, operating and maintenance costs. The investor gets the revenue plus the low carbon fuel credits of the station, and you get to offer this amenity to your customers or use it to support your electric vehicle fleet. 

When the investor’s period of ownership is over, you can either take on the revenues and costs of the station, or you can have Gentec Services remove it from your property at no cost.
