Louis Bowen’s New Generator

           Louis, a long time customer of Byrd Electric moved, to a new home that was serviced by a generator that really didn’t meet his expectations like the one he had at his previous home. After a couple of bad storms and a few frustrating issues he gave us a call.We installed a brand new Winco 21kw fully automatic generator with all the bells and whistles. He will have a lot of new friends during the power outages that frequent the area he lives in.
