how do you keep cool How do you prevent your food from spoiling? How will you power vital medical equipment? How will you keep your smartphone, Wi-Fi network, home security system and other electronic devices online? Ephraim Barlow, co-owner of HedgeHog Electric & Solar, said these are the questions every homeowner in southern Utah needs to answer.

“Too often we don’t plan for future emergencies,” he added. “In the event of a power failure, the question is not if, but when and for how long.”

Some family members may need extra support when the power goes out, including children and seniors who are at higher risk of dehydration and heat exhaustion. The solution to keeping your loved ones safe and living comfortably is a permanent standby generator that constantly monitors the home’s electrical system and turns on automatically when it detects a power outage.

“The moment it senses that power is restored, it shuts itself down again,” Barlow said. “Nobody has to go out and flick circuit breakers; You don’t even have to be home.”

HedgeHog is the community’s trusted local team of experts on backup generators. The company installs quality, reliable products that are there for customers when they need them most and provides ongoing support to ensure homeowners are never without power. HedgeHog is a certified dealer of Generac, one of the leading names in backup generator technology in the United States.

Homeowners can install a partial or full home generator depending on their electricity needs in the event of a power outage. A whole-home system seamlessly powers large appliances like cooling and heating systems, refrigerators, water heaters, and sump pumps, along with appliances like lights and computers. According to Barlow, about 9 out of 10 customers in southern Utah choose comprehensive home protection.

The generator will perform a routine system check and start-up on either a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis, depending on the customer’s preference. HedgeHog also offers homeowners an option to remotely monitor the system on their mobile devices.

Standby generators operate on a variety of independent fuel sources including diesel, natural gas, propane and gasoline. In the St. George area, most use the existing natural gas supply to the house.

HedgeHog is a locally owned company that has been providing residential and commercial electrical services since 2008. They have the knowledge and skills to help customers find the ideal backup generator for their home’s electrical needs. They take care of the entire installation process, including obtaining the necessary permits from the city and connecting to the natural gas utility.

“We’re selling it and maintaining it for the long term,” Barlow said.
