CHUCK PERKINS

Founder / CEO

Chuck began his career in generators as a Licensed Electrical Contractor and installed his first generator in the early 90s; he has been committed to providing emergency backup power to the Greater Atlanta area ever since. His background in customer service for Eastern Airlines has influenced every aspect of the company, with a deep dedication to providing only the best service in every interaction – from communication to planning and implementation.

When he’s not at the office, Chuck enjoys spending time on his family farm, and with his beautiful wife, Cindy. He is the father to 3 wonderful daughters and a grandfather to 2 spunky grandchildren. Some of his hobbies include shooting sporting clays, gardening, bass fishing, and pheasant hunting.
