"Excellent!! I would recommend"

Excellent!! I would recommend. This was the best decision we made to install a generator from Oakwood Electric & Generator. From beginning to end, Rob was there to answer all of our questions. Also, the men installing the generator were very professional and hard workers and explained everything to us. We are very confident to recommend Oakwood Electric & Generator to all of our friends.

Thank you Oakwood Electric & Generator

They installed a manual transfer switch for a Generac generator that I purchased myself. From my first contact with the office to the visit by the estimator to the crew - everyone at Oakwood was timely, knowledgeable, helpful and professional. The crew was extraordinarily polite, neat, communicative and friendly. They took time to help us determine which circuits needed to be on the transfer switch and explain to us how the transfer switch works. Thank you Oakwood Electric & Generator. I will definitely use you again AND recommend you.

"We would hire Oakwood Lighting again without a second thought. "

Rob was very knowledgeable about whole house generators. He is certified by Generac. He was very clear about the products and was able to accurately assess what we would need. He supplied us with options that would work for our situation. The installation was done quickly and in a very professional manner. We had several estimates on this project and this company was by far the most qualified and the most economical. We would hire Oakwood Lighting again without a second thought.

" I was extremely impressed with Rob's workmanship, his openess to answering questions, and the continued support I will receive from his company."

Oakwood Lighting was of one three companies that I had come to my house to give me an estimate on the installation of a whole house generator. All three companies have experience in installing whole house generators. What separated Oakwood Lighting from the other companies was the owner, Rob Rheingten, who unlike the other gentlemen gave me an estimate on the spot. He also took the time to sit down with me and explain how the generator would work, the installation process, as well as answer any questions I might have had. I had a lot and he answered them quite thoroughly. Rob took care of acquiring the necessary permit. The installation process went quite smoothly, with the help of his co-worker. The job was completed in a day. This included removing of landscaping, installing a rectangular box made from timbers and filled with pea gravel from where the generator would sit, installing the generator itself and the gas line. Rob then showed my wife, as I was not home, how the generator worked by shutting off the power to the house which caused the generator to start up. He went through and showed the components of the generator to my wife. Two days later Rob came over as the city inspector came to see if the installation was up to code, it was. He took the time to go through the process of how the generator worked for me. I was extremely impressed with Rob's workmanship, his openess to answering questions, and the continued support I will receive from his company. More importantly I feel I now have an electrician I can trust.

"I am very satisfied and will use Oakwood Lighting again"

Rob responded within a day to my call for information regarding purchase and installation of a whole-house generator. Initially, I had thought I would just have a few circuits covered by the generator, but Rob explained that I could have a generator installed that would take care of my entire house for only $200 more (without turning on every light and appliance in the house which I never do) I told him to order what he needed to proceed. Within a week after the generator was delivered from the manufacturer, Rob and Alex were beginning the installation. They were very neat and the job was completed within a few days. I am very satisfied and will use Oakwood Lighting again.

"I would recommend them to all my friends"

Rec'd quotes from Rob on installing extra lights in the basement and outside. Also adding more circuits. Oakwood Lighting did an excellent job. Very clean and professional. Also I had them install a Generac full house generator. They did an excellent job there also. I am very particular and I had no complaints. I have used them four times now for various projects and I would reccommend them to all of my friends. Robert Gilchrist.
