we are, how we got here, and where we’re headed!
In 1985 working as a construction company building custom homes, we began to see the desire for some people to have backup power. So we occasionally installed generator systems as part of the larger construction projects. After losing
power during the storm in 1996, we realized that our entire metropolitan
area was unprepared for such outages. The rapid growth in our
area was starting to strain to the power grids and the financially
troubled utilities were unlikely to invest in the expansion and
maintenance of their network. Accordingly, we believed that the
power problems would become worse and that there was a niche for
a customer service oriented, professional company to provide turnkey
back-up power solutions. It was therefore a natural transition
for us to establish Bethesda Generator Systems, drop all other lines
of business and specialize exclusively in the sales, installation,
service, maintenance and warranty of automatic standby generator
systems from residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
Our office is located in Bethesda, Maryland and our shop is located
in Bowie, Maryland, at the same locations since 1985, proudly
serving the entire MD, DC, and VA Metropolitan areas.
We are authorized sales, service, and warranty dealers for many
top generator and switchgear manufacturers, and we will design
the best system for your application based on your specific requirements
and your budget.
We offer turnkey, single source, full service emergency back-up
power solutions using state of the art technology at the best
possible value. Our in-house team of engineers, master electricians
and gas fitters, diesel mechanics and factory certified technicians
all have construction experience, and are very familiar with fire
and building codes as well as local county ordinances and regulations.
Accordingly, you are guaranteed a safe, cost-effective, and headache-free
emergency generator system.
From initial contact, through system design, value engineering,
civil work, electro-mechanical installation, service, preventive
maintenance, and customer service, we promise you prompt, reliable,
courteous, professional and personal service at the best possible
value throughout the life of your generator system.
In addition to our residential customers partly represented in
the Testimonials sections, our
long list of satisfied customers includes nursing homes, hospitals
and clinics, restaurants, data and communication centers, high-rise
and community apartment buildings, hotels, medical and biotech
facilities, supermarkets, insurance companies, defense contractors,
County and State institutions, and the federal government.
Almost a decade ago we committed to dedicate ourselves exclusively
to serving the area’s back-up power needs, and we have been
fortunate with that decision.
Today, in-home businesses and medical care are both on the rise.
County, State, and Federal regulations and requirements for required
emergency generators are increasing. All this, as mother nature
continues to bring us a steady stream of wind, rain, and ice storms,
while power grids are overworked as the demand for power is increasing
at a rate twice that of the overall capacity.
Accordingly, we believe the demand over the next decade will continue
to rise for both residential and commercial applications.
At BGS's Generator Systems, we will continue improving and be
ready to better serve your needs.
