Nationally, the unemployment rates remains above 8%, but in Connecticut, one company is bucking the trend. In the aftermath of October’s historic storms, Newington Electric Co. has announced the formation of Connecticut Home Generator Systems.

“During the past two storms, Newington Electric Co. fielded over 4,500 phone calls and hundreds of emails from Connecticut residents who were without power,” said Ed Ingalls, owner of Newington Electric Co. “We had to call in additional help and worked around the clock, in response to the needs of our customers.”

Connecticut Home Generator Systems has moved full steam ahead since its recent formation, despite a depressed economy. However, the company is struggling to find qualified employees to fill 12 positions, including managerial, sales, electricians, and repair technicians.

“We want to get the word out that there is opportunity here in Connecticut,” said Ingalls. “In order to turn the tide of unemployment, it takes growth, one company at a time.”

Connecticut Home Generator Systems’ parent company, Newington Electric Co., has been providing expert generator installation for more than 20 years. The organization has become one of the largest Generac dealers in the state, offering 24-hour emergency service and repairs to its customers. Newington Electric is also listed on Generac’s web page as an authorized sales and service dealer and installation expert. Now Connecticut Home Generator Systems is pushing the company to the next level.

Moving forward, CT Home Generator Systems will be dedicated to providing its customers with unsurpassed first class customer service before, during, and after a storm. “Anyone can install a generator on a nice, sunny day, however, it’s the service after the installation that counts the most,” Ingalls adds. “If your generator won’t start, will your electrician be available in the middle of a storm when you need him most?”

Connecticut Home Generator Systems’ main focus will be on installing and servicing residential stand-by generator systems, while educating its customers on the choices they have when deciding on a home generator system that’s most suitable for their current situation, specifically taking into consideration the customers’ needs, requirements, concerns and physical limitations.

To anticipate the demand for its new division, Newington Electric has expanded into an additional 2,000 square feet of office warehouse space at its current facility, located in Newington, Conn.
