Carroll county Maryland residence always seem to get hit the hardest when it comes to power outages. The frustration of not having power at night during freezing temperatures or the inconvenience of the HVAC not working during the summer months can be solved. David Williams Electric can assist you with setting up your whole home generator system or portable generator, to ensure that the next time the power goes out, you are covered. Studies have shown that power usage and blackouts will increase over the next decade, increasing the likelihood of your power going out at your home. Storms in the region have also intensified, creating more damaging wind and hail, causing even more power outages. Employees have hit an all-time high working from home and the need for power to complete your job is even more important. David Williams Electric has been your trusted Carroll County electrician for over 31 years and can get you set up with your new home generator.
Whole home generators are designed to power your entire home during an outage. This means that you can continue your day or night in the same fashion that you typically would. Whole home generators are the actual peace-of-mind system many clients desire. This type of system will require a dedicated location outside of your home to host the generator permanently. This type of generator will require an electrician who will “tap” into your main electric panel to ensure that the generator turns on the minute the power goes out from the power company, ensuring that you have a seamless transition of power to the generator.
Portable generators provide power when you need it for your home, and they also have the flexibility to go with you when you need it, like a camping trip or off-road adventure. Typically, portable generators are much smaller and have less power capability. However, in a pinch, they are helpful to those who need to power a few items in their home while the power is out. The downside of a portable generator is the extension cords that need to be run to each appliance you need power for. David Williams Electric can provide you with the installation of a manual transfer switch that has dedicated lines running to your most essential appliances in the home.

We will handle every aspect of getting your generator ready to power your home. Many homeowners have frequently asked questions before they decide on an electric company that will complete the installation.
There are a variety of options and sizes of generators. You can power your most essential items when the power goes out, like your refrigerator, freezer, oven, or TV 😊 to your entire home.

You will find natural gas in most residences with a line running to your home by a city or municipality. Dedicated natural gas lines will provide you with an unlimited supply of natural gas to your generator.
Propane options typically require you to have an onsite tank at your home. You must ensure that your gas company fills your tank when the levels are low to ensure you have propane to power your generator in an outage. Most gas companies will offer monitoring of the tank and provide automatic refills when the tank gets low.
Like many vehicles on the road, portable generators can run on diesel and gasoline. This provides the flexibility to refill just about anywhere. The downside of this is that you must have a supply of fuel if you are at your home. If the power goes out too long, you must refill manually.
Whole home generators will require about a 4’ x 6’ location outside your home. We can assist you with the best site for your generator.
Portable generators can be placed anywhere outside the home in a safe area. You will want to ensure you have the proper ventilation while running your portable generator for your safety.
This will depend on the type of fuel you will need for your generator. Natural gas generators essentially have an unlimited run time due to the unlimited supply of gas running to your home. For liquid propane, it will depend on the size of your tank at your home. A 500-gallon tank will run your home for roughly a week, and a 1000-gallon tank for two weeks. Generators will typically burn about 2-3 gallons per hour. This also depends on what the generator is powering.
Generator costs can vary depending on a few factors. Some of the factors to consider are the size of the generator, the size of the main panel in your home, the location of the generator, and the type of fuel required to run the generator. Our professional estimators will be able to provide an in-person assessment and provide you with accurate pricing.

Diagnosed my electrical issue, then professionally resolved. Quick response time, quality work at a very reasonable price. Definitely use Dave Williams Electric for all future electrical work.
Needed some electrical work done in our garage. We’ve used DWE before and had a great experience. This time was no different- Matt and Lamont were professional and efficient. Would recommend.
Abbigail Cleckner was our electrician and she was amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable. They did quick clean work and my new lights are amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
David Williams guys showed up on time, went above and beyond by helping me move some cabinets that were in their way (something I should have moved beforehand), and patched all drywall that had to be removed. Great Job!
We were so pleased with the work that Dave and Kevin did for us. I’m sure we don’t need to tell you what professionals they are. The explanation of the work to be done, the quality of their work, their neatness, etc., was all outstanding. We are more than happy to be a reference for others looking for great electrical professionals and plan to use David Williams Electric again in the near future.
Dave, I don’t normally do this, but I wanted to thank you for doing what you said when you said you would do it! We have been having a lot of work done in the house in the last year and it is the exception that when I get home, the work that was done was done correctly! You are the exception—thanks for your work!
We renovated our kitchen three years ago stopping short of the addition of recessed lighting. With the installation of the lights last week, it’s like walking into a brand new kitchen once again. We are so enjoying it. I appreciate the time spent with Vern discussing placement of the cans for function and aesthetics. We want you to know how much we admire the way you run your business, your work ethic and expertise and that of your staff.
