You Can’t Control When Your Power Goes Out,
But You Can Control When Your Power Comes Back On

For over 67 years, ATEL has provided expert licensed electrical services all over Eastern Ontario.

We are second to none when it comes to providing home generators that meet your needs, whether you just need to keep your heat and sump pump working, or you want to keep everything in your home powered when your Hydro goes down. We even have larger generators that can keep your entire business powered.

We carry a variety of natural gas and propane powered generators that are surprisingly quiet. They’re also convenient to use – no more trudging out to the garage or lugging gas cans around to get it started. Our modern generators start working automatically when the lights go out, and stop automatically when the electricity comes back on.

"My husband and I are very pleased with the service from Arthur Thom Electric Ltd and the men who came to install and make sure everything was in good working order. David called the first Monday after to make sure the generator came on for its weekly startup. Made us feel very good about everything. A week later we had no power for an hour and the generator came on, everthing was able to continue as normal - I was so happy. We recommend Arthur Thom Electric Limited to anyone and everyone.”
