Could someone please recommend backup power generator vendors on St. Thomas? I searched this board and only find Import Supply, are they still in business?

We would like to have a permanently mounted whole house generator, about 15 KWs installed in our house. From reading the post here, I think we want a one powered by diesel.

Any information will be appreciated. You can also send private message to me if desired.

Thanks.

I would check with home depot see if they are doing special orders and who they are dealing with (for service/install).

Rather than check the board, how about checking the yellow pages in the local telephone book? Ah, you reply on cellphone service! Well, here's the link to the telephone book online:

Several options there and I would also second taking a look at HD. Cheers!

Antilles has great service on STX and is now operating on STT
I use them to keep a 60 KW generator serviced and available for emergency power

Hi all
Happy New Year.
My name is Kate and I am the GENERAC dealer and service rep for STT, STJ and Water Island. FYI I own a 15KW propane unit and auto transfer switch at my house and I love it. If you are still looking for propane, gas or diesel-powered genny quotes, you can email me off the board or reply here (I am new to this forun, and trying to be respectful & obey the non-solicitation rules, but since you asked, we are available on STT).
GENERAC is also sold at the STX and STT Home Depot. We do warranty service, repair and general maintenance on those units.

thanks
Kate

I can recommend the 13 kw GE Propane generator available at Home Depot. We bought it on STT, had it delivered to STJ and our electrician installed it. It comes with an automatic on switch. Since we didn't want it to come on with every 30 minute power outage, we had a kill switch added. It's sleek design isn't an eyesore and works fine. We chose propane because it seems to runs quieter than diesel.
