Open Junction boxes

We find many houses have open junction boxes. If you have boxes like these, they should be closed with box covers.
We find many homes have unsecured boxes that are just hanging by the wire. They need to be fastened to something before the wires go bad.
Also, these boxes do not have connectors . That can also cause the wire to go bad.

We Recycle Proof

We have been doing a lot of work trying to find better ways to do our jobs. One of the things we work on is cutting out the waste our business produces. Our company now recycles 100% of its metal, wire, cardboard and plastic. It adds minor cost to our business model but save tons of waste. We are now keeping one dumpster's worth of construction waste out of the landfill every week. We have also switched from plastic to reusable plastic bags, which all of our workers carry. We used to use up to 30 plastic bags a week! Sustainability has become a top priority for us at Generation 3 Electric.

Be careful of who you rent to

Don't worry your house is not that dirty.
