Professional Preventative Maintenance by factory trained technicians! Call today to get on our service calendar!

Annual Preventive Maintenance performed by factory trained technicians is essential to keep your standby power system performing properly. At Collins Control & Electric, all of our technicians are trained by Generac to maintain, service, and repair their generators. More then just a simple service, our technicians adjust the valve lash and double check the operation of the automatic transfer switches. From Air-Cooled, to Liquid-Cooled we maintain Generac generators all over Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. With our preventative maintenance agreement, we send you a detailed service report with professional notes after services are rendered. Keep these with your files to ensure alignment with the manufacturer’s warranty. Let us offer you peace of mind and power assurance by taking this task off of your to do list. Call Collins Control & Electric today to get on our service calendar.

Power Assurance For Local Business

Our team at Collins Control & Electric successfully installed a 150kW Liquid Cooled Generac generator for Gallegos Sanitation, our local waste management company. This system backs up their entire maintenance bay, as well as, their entire office building. In the case of a power outage, they can continue business as usual, saving GSI and their customers time and money. Let Collins Control & Electric show you how we can offer you power assurance. Contact us at 970-484-8696.

This back up power system requires two 400 Amp fully automatic transfer switches. One switch is for the maintenance bay, and one is for he office. Our team is able to install these so that they activate simultaneously!

Off-Grid Generator Rides Again

generator and solar for off-grid electric serviceA generator with a solar system brings electric service to off-grid living.

Gary Packard is one of Collins Control & Electric’s off grid customers. He has a 4.2 KW/hr solar system with a bank of batteries to power his home.  A Kohler 17RES backup generator charges the batteries when the weather is not sufficiently sunny.  On normal days, the solar power is enough for two days of use, but on overcast days in December, January, and February the generator is on more frequently. This system makes the Packard household energy independent.

Comanche Reservoir Generator Engine Replacement

A little while ago, we went up to the Comanche Reservoir area to replace the engine on a generator. It was so remote that snowmobiling was our transportation of choice.  Collins Control & Electric enjoys a challenge when delivering electrical contractor services.  Even when it involves spending time in Northern Colorado’s beautiful outdoors.
Here are some pictures from our little adventure:
