Optimus Electric is an approved supplier of Kohler back-up generators.

We can offer propane, natural gas, diesel and gasoline powered ‘gensets’ to accommodate every type of installation requirement.

We can help you determine which of the two types of installations best suit your needs.

  • An Autotransfer Switch with communication to your smart phone so that you know exactly when your BC Hydro is out and that your back-up generator is on.
  • A Manual Transfer switch with a ‘plug in’ gas generator.

There are many reasons to have a generator for back-up. They include:

  • A remote or ‘off grid’ location
  • To provide basic lighting during occasional power outages
  • To keep wells running if you need to maintain running water
  • Prevent the costly loss of items in your fridge and freezer
  • Keep your modems and network working so you can be informed during power outages

  • Outdoor and general building security

Installations can be linked to recording equipment, as well as directly to your smart phone or remote monitoring computer so that you can always be aware of what is going on in your space.

We can also repair and upgrade existing POE (Power Over Ethernet) systems and provide maintenance to always keep you up and running.
