Our History

barrington building2 editThe Generator Connection was started on March 3, 1999. Wayne Noyes, the owner, had been in the electrical contracting business Noyes Electric Inc. since 1975. In February of 1998 the New England area had just experienced the worst ice storm in recent history. Power was out for weeks in some areas.

It was then that Wayne got an idea, if someone was to put together an installed package, of a generator, power cord, transfer switch, power outlet box and service everything they sell there might be a good market for such a service. Wayne, thought about it and did some research, and found no other company in the business of selling, installing and servicing, portable & standby generator systems. On March 3, 1999 “The Generator Connection” was born. Wayne put together two packages, a 6kw portable generator with a 10-circuit manual transfer switch and a 12kw standby generator with an automatic transfer switch and put a small ad in the local newspaper. The business started to grow.

Over the years, The Generator Connection has continued to grow. Today we are a family operated business offering Sales, Service and Installation throughout all of New England and Eastern New York from our Barrington, NH office.

Now with thousands of generators in the residential, commercial, municipal and health care fields, and the experience to see what should and shouldn’t be in a generator system. We have developed “The New Englander” Edition, designed with features specifically needed for reliable operation in the cold and unpredictable New England weather.

We look forward to a bright future for the generator business, as the transmission lines for the grid system are getting older and replacement for upgrades to the grid are less likely due to the cost of such replacements. Thirty years ago a lot of homes had a microwave oven. Today every home has a microwave oven. It will be the same with backup generators.

The Generator Connection always strives for quality product and excellent service. Only selling and installing top quality generator systems we do not try to compete with the big box stores. We service what we sell.
