Here is what some of our happy customers have had to say about us
From first contact with KDE, I was impressed with the honesty and straightforwardness of Emil, in explaining options and patiently answering my novice questions. The two-person crew arrived at the scheduled time and conducted the work in a most diligent and professional manner, even after discovering unexpected obstacles. During the job, Emil took the time to fully explain what was going on and why. This was important to ensure that I got what I was looking for in the system and I greatly appreciated it. Upon completion of the work, the crew thoroughly cleaned up and Emil gave me some last instructions on operation and maintenance. What more could anyone ask? As a person who knew nothing about home generators, I am now confident and satisfied with my new system, thanks to Emil and the KDE crew.

When my wife and I bought the Generac Whole House generator, we were a little worried about the proficiency of the people who would install it. But we could not have been more pleased with Emil and his crew. Any questions or concerns that we had, he would explain things to us so we understood everything and helped us in many ways. He is the most professional and competent person I have dealt with in a long time. If we ever move to another home, we will without hesitation have him install another Generac for us.

After years of dealing with power outages we decided to bite the bullet and have an automatic standby generator installed. We were referred to Emil with KDE Electric by our son-in-law, who was referred by a neighbor, and they were both very pleased with Emil and the service he provided.
After assessing the electrical load Emil carefully explained his recommendation for sizing the generator to meet the desired whole house functionality. His assessment explored size and pricing options so that we understood what ultimately became the best solution for our home. During the actual installation he was flexible to accommodate small changes which were made along the way. He met every schedule point for his portion of the overall project. During the interior work he was careful to cover the carpeting and to sweep up when the work was complete.
In summary, we wholeheartedly recommend KDE Electric for the selection and installation of one’s standby power needs.

Emil and his crew displayed professionalism and conscientious for producing a high quality of electrical work during the installation of our Generac generator. We are very pleased with the outcome and KDE was very focused on us being thoroughly satisfied. KDE is an excellent company to deal with and represents Generac is a superb manner. Thanks for a job well done!

Emil Chirvasuta (owner) is extremely professional and very knowledgeable. He helped us through the entire process and made the process seamless. He is also extremely honest and does not try to take advantage of his customers. I would highly recommend him to not only install and service the whole house Generac generator but for any electric work you may have.
Customer, from Virginia
“I highly recommend Emil Chirvasuta. He is honest and dependable and it is displayed in his work ethic. He did a great job for us and our brother in law.
We could not have been better pleased.

In mid-July 2016, we contacted Emil of KDE Electric about a whole house generator. Emil promptly returned our call (same day) and made an appointment within a couple of days. Emil listened to our desires, what we felt our needs were and reviewed our home in relation to a whole house generator. After inputing the information into his computer Emil discussed several options with us. He went over the pros and cons of the various size units available that would meet several options as discussed; from dedicated circuits to using load-shedders and also a whole house unit that would power every circuit. Later that afternoon, Emil had individual work-ups of all the options with a complete price quote for each. We took the information that Emil provided us. We discussed it with a longtime friend who used to do generator installs, did some additional research on the internet, and contacted other vendors to get prices and service comparisons; needless to say, this created quite a few questions for us. We emailed Emil with our questions to which he responded promptly and accurately (our friend was impressed with his knowledge). Emil impressed us with his knowledge of his product, and the electrical work that would be required to complete our selected model. Throughout the entire process there was no pressure from Emil nor did he attempt to sell us what we did not want but instead encouraged us to get a unit that would meet our wishes. During installation, Emil and his employees were very responsive to our requests and were more than willing to provide us answers to ensure we knew the product that we selected. Emil and his employees were very efficient and neat in their work. By the end of August 2016, we had the unit installed, inspected and in stand-by mode waiting for a power outage. Furthermore, KDE Electric, unlike several other companies contacted, provides a complete service. KDE not only sells the unit but also does the installation and servicing themselves, unlike several other companies contacted which used sub-contractors. We would recommend Emil of KDE Electric for your generator needs as they will meet your needs.

I am a retired Mechanical Engineer. I retired as Senior Principal of a 50 man firm providing Mechanical/Electrical Design Services and Construction Administration Services for a vast array of projects. During that time I had an opportunity to work with many Architects, Owners, Manufacturer’s Representatives and Contractors. I would put Emil in the top 10% of the Manufacturer’s Representative/Contractors that I have worked with. I contacted 3 Contractors for my project. Emil is the only one that I talked to that was able to come immediately, discuss the proposed project in finite detail covering all aspects of the project. The other two contractors had to make arrangements to get a Manufacturer’s Representative to accompany them to my home to discuss the project. One of the frustrating aspects of my profession was dealing with people that couldn’t give me answers without contacting their factory or digging through their catalog. Emil knows his product; he knows design; and, he is a knowledgeable and competent installing contractor. He also provided the best price. In addition, he took care of all the coordination necessary with AmeriGas and with the Electrical Inspectors. The start-up of the system was smooth and as it happened the following week, we experienced a power outage of 1 hour and 45 minutes in duration. As soon as the lights and the TV went off we heard the generator start up. We were back on-line with emergency power within a 10-15 second time period, and the entire process, from power outage and generator start to normal power restoration, went very smoothly. Coming from my background I would always recommend that a person get at least three bids for a project. You will do yourself a great disservice if one of the bids does not come from KDE Electric. If anyone would happen to have any questions regarding my experience with KDE Electric, I would be happy to talk to you.
Tower, from Virginia
From our first visit until completion of job KDE had an excellant professional attitude, manner and knowledge of what he was to do. He guided me through what he thought I wanted to explained all aspect of this equipment in lay terms to me. The scheduled appointment were kept on time and always let me know when he would be here. More work was required that indicated on the contract and KDE did not charge me for that. KDE schooled me on what I should or should not do with the Generator; more than three times. Guess I had a hard head, but he did not leave until he was satisfied that I had the basic knowledge of what to do. KDE will be back this month to inspect and check the system. A remote device is to be installed whereas I do not have to go outside to check the operating function of the Genertor. KDE is an outstanding Generac business operation with a electrical knowledgeable second to none and honesty that is hard to fine. I really trust KDE. Got along great with my five dogs.
Mr. B, from West Virginia
I would recommend KDE Electric and Emil highly! Emil is professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the product he sells and installs. I recommend KDE Electric to anyone considering a generator system!
Allen, from Virginia
When we contacted KDE to discuss the purchase of a Generac Emil set up an appointment within 2 days. He explained which product would suit our needs and answered our questions patiently and completely. Emil assured us that he would take care of permits, inspections and whatever other details needed to be done for the project. When having work done you expect delays but that never happened and the job was promptly completed. We were impressed how everything ran so smoothly from the beginning to the end. When it came time to test the unit Emil explained and showed us how it would work. That was important because now we know what to expect and the load the generator will handle when we have a power outage. Emil and his assistant were friendly, competent, neat and efficient throughout the whole job we are completely satisfied and do recommend KDE to anyone installing a generator in their home or business.
Bergton, from Virginia
I WOULD RECOMMEND KDE Electric to
all my friends because of the excellent work
he did installing my new generator. A very pleasant person to work with.
Jane, from Virginia
The best investment and the best dealer. Everything was smooth, and everything worked from the beginning. Price was very resonable, execution on time.
Flowers, from Virginia
I have been very impressed with this dealer from the day that I scheduled my first meeting. At our first meeting, I was totally educated on the products and which product would work best for me. I met and received offers from three dealers but did not feel that the others put forth the time and energy to show if they were as knowledgeable about Generac generators as this dealer. I highly recommend this dealer as he will handle every aspect of the installation and make sure that you understand why and what he is doing in addition to offering a reasonable price for all this service.
Lu58, from Virginia
Emil has been very helpful and responsive. He has been prompt, friendly, and professional. We had numerous questions that he answered thoughtfully and accurately. We are very satisfied.
Bob, from Virginia
I can’t say enough about the professionalism of Emil. He was here when he said he would be, made me aware of what he was doing and when, answered all of my questions thoroughly, and made the installation of our generator completely painless. He is very knowledgeable of his trade and a delight to work with. If you need a professional, he is your man!
SW, from Virginia
KDE is a top notch dealer! He completes the work he says he is going to do, but more importantly he tests his work. He also takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he is doing it. He is very professional in his approach and ensures the customer knows the reason for his actions and understands the process with a personable delivery. I will definitely use KDE Electric for all my future generator needs.
JD, from Virginia
I am happy to report that not all contractors are alike. KDE delivered on everything they promised me. On Time Delivery even on a bad weather day. Emil knows his stuff and came prepared with all of the parts and materials needed to complete the job of replacing my Transfer Switch and control cabling that my first contractor had improperly installed, “caveat emptor” You would be well served in using KDE
for your generator insulation!!
Chasmo22, from Virginia
KDE Electric was great to work with. Emil did an outstanding job installing the stand-by generator. He was very professional and his expertise, including load shedding, was evident. I would highly recommend KDE for all your generator needs.
Rich, from Virginia
I have installed my 14 KW generator with KDE Electric four years ago. It works like a clock!
I lost my power 2 times and everything was OK because i have an annual maintenance agreement with KDE to do all the service for my generator. It is cheap and worthy! One day Emil, during the service routine smelled some gas odor. When he put his tester device, the gas valve inside generator was leaking. He replaced it right away and he charged me 50 dollars only.
This is like an insurance to me! I do recommend KDE Electric to anybody !
John, from Virginia
This dealer was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and courteous. I would absolutely recommend this dealer to anyone needing a generator.
Steve, from Virginia
The dealer was on-time, explained what was to be accomplished and did an outstanding installation job. He is highly recommended.
John, from Virginia
We had the whole house generator installed by KDE when we were building the house. It has worked flawlessly since then. KDE has done the routine service for very reasonable costs.
Dwmd, from Virginia
KDE exceeded all expectations. Especially in todays world of companies only doing a bare minimum job. Emil routinely called me back, showed up on time, and took the time to make sure I was completely satisfied with his work. His professionalism shines through. I would definitely recommend KDE for your generator needs.
Phunny, from Virginia
KDE was very attentive to my system needs and designed the system around what I wanted and needed. They were very affordable and felt comfident in KDE’s service based on their reviews which I relied on heavily. The installation and test run went smoothly and we are happy to have all our systems backed up. KDE was always on time and completed the work without a mess. They also didn’t skimp on things like the concrete slab or the utility hook ups. All were done like it was their own. I’d recommend them if you are looking to install a back-up generator.
Nick, from Virginia
Our generator was installed on a rocky mountainside with difficult access, requiring much coordination and extra effort by the professionals of KDE Electric. I was extremely pleased with the entire process and am very satisfied with the completed generator system. I hold KDE Electric in very high regard and am grateful to my neighbors who recommended this company. It is so good to have the competent, cordial and trustworthy professionals of KDE available locally to work on our home.
Biologist, from Virginia
Extremely pleased with all aspects of dealing with Emil at KDE.Very professional approach from start to finish of the installation. Have had one power failure since the generator was installed and everything worked as advertised.
Bernie, from Virginia
KDE was great to work with, the estimate was accurate with no hidden charges or changes but helpful suggestions and options to suit our needs. Emil was professional, timely and responsive to any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Emil and KDE to anyone. Thanks Emil.
Whiskers, from West Virginia
KDE is always on time and provides exemplary service. The estimate was right on and Emil advised me of costs outside of the contract with him, so there were no surprises. I always knew what to expect. You are not forgotten once the installation is complete, if you have questions or need service, Emil is ready to come out immediately despite the time of day. Also works on Saturdays which is very convenient. The generator is peace of mind and so is dealing with KDE. Thanks Emil!!
Bikerxgirl, from West Virginia
KDE started with a very detailed free estimate for me.
Emil then did an excellent job on the installation. It went very smoothly- all on time and on price. County inspection was even impressed. After the install he took the time to review the generator’s operation with me; he has also done follow-up to make sure the unit was operating properly. The generator has been a blessing through two outages this year.
I fully recommend KDE to anyone thinking about installing a Gernerac generator.
Julie, from Virginia
We wanted this generator for our piece of mind. And we search, and search the best price. Finally this local guy, Emil from KDE Electric inspired us that he can do indeed the best job at the best price. We are not sorry for our decision, and we do reccomend everybody who needs a generator to speak with Emil from KDE Electric
