Carnahan Electric installs Back-Up Generators...

Check these tips on generator maintenance...

You want to be prepared for an unexpected storm that could bring high winds and heavy rain. In the lower elevations of the county, branches blow into power lines, possibly disrupting your PG&E service. It happens every year and it can be a short-term inconvenience, or more serious. Can you manage to be without power when you depend on a pellet stove (which still requires electricity), or maybe a well pump? Think of the reasons you would NOT want to wait out a long power outage! Your ability to heat your home, cook your meals, to watch TV. Do you have any medical equipment that would fail? Call 530-642-2476, or visit our generator page to learn how back-up generators do the job safely and without hassles.

Carnahan Electric installs Solar Arrays

If the long hot summer shot your PG&E bills for running A/C through the roof, ask us about converting to solar energy to get control over your air conditioning power costs. You can avoid the ever-increasing charges you pay PG&E with their escalating tiers (ironic) and time-of-use rates. We have been installing solar panels since 2000, and we can show you how to dramatically reduce your power bills by switching to a solar, grid-connected system to handle all your power needs above Tier 1! Visit our solar page to learn how this works. Carnahan Electric Installs a variety of solar arrays: Roof Mount, Ground Mount, Pole Mount, and Tracker Systems.
