Terrific Job / Very professional
The installation team was terrific. They were able to hide all the work in the ceiling so nothing was sticking out in my basement. Great work. Office staff was great too in handling all the paperwork and permits. I would definitely recommend this dealer.-Warren/Monroe Township
My First Experience with Generators
I have nothing but praise for Fortech Electric. They treated me professionally, with my first meeting with the contractor, all the installers and the office staff. I'm very happy with the Generac "whole house generator" as well as Fortech Electric, who did the installation. I have recommended all my friends to Fortech.-Jim/ Whiting, NJ
Real Professionals and Excellent Work
I had a 17kw Generac Generator installed by ForTech at my new home and I couldn't be happier (I had a generator at my former home and everything was a problem with the install and servicing). ForTech did a fantastic installation, very neat and cleaned up when finished (our crew was Raoul, BG and John), all very hard workers. The guys were great and when they were finished they were kind enough to remove and dispose of table and chairs my wife no longer wanted. All Township inspections went flawlessly and passed 3 inspections (Gas, Electric and Final Running Test) by Township Building Codes initial inspections. It's obvious why I gave high ratings in all areas but because they earned it. They were so wonderful that I took out the Maintenance and Extended Warranty with ForTech. They have me scheduled for twice a year (Inspection and Oil Change, Filter and Air Cleaner). Rachel, from ForTech's office) even helped us get a variance with our township. Rachel is wonderful to deal with and is a real asset to ForTech, always pleasant and helpful, no call goes unanswered.-Tommy B/Jackson, NJ
The same day I called to inquire about a whole house generator, the owner came to my house and we signed a contract. I received all the information I needed for my HOA to approved the installation. For-Tech obtained the municipal permits promptly and began the job as soon as I received the HOA approval. Installation was quick and efficient. Rachel arranged for the municipal inspections and we were done. I was very pleased with the service I received from For-Tech.-Art/Manchester, NJ
Outstanding dealer in all categories
I sent an email in July 2013 and within a few hours I received a return email and a phone call. The owner Yaakov Forchheimer came early morning to accommodate my schedule for going to work. He did complete inspection of the property and the need while using his ipad and other gadgets. He called his staff who provided all township related specifications for the permit and generated a quote . He took pictures and before he left the property he had given me a full quote. Also understanding my needs (and I had done my home work in terms of nature of model I needed) he found ways to save money. Yaakov alerted me to ensure I get pre-certification from the Gas company if any work is needed by them. This was a proper advice coming from someone who had done many such installations. I did not hear such details from others I had contacted. Once I made a commitment to sign up and pay for the first installment the work began with efficiency supported by Rachel at the office. They are always reachable and often are able to provide immediate status. They made the application of permits a breeze, accommodated my schedule so I had to be home on only ONE day for all the inside work. At other times they worked out a plan so I did not have to be home except for final township inspection. There were many intermediate inspections by township all handled by them from outside. When work expanded requiring some wiring via deep underground instead of through the house they completed them promptly. The technical staff that came to the house (headed by Raul ) are very professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. They made sure they wore cover over their boots when they came in. It is attention to such details that made me very pleased to write this review. Yaakov's price is very reasonable . In my view having worked with other contractors it is hard to find this kind of emphasis on quality, and responsiveness in the marketplace. They are willing to go the extra mile for our satisfaction. During the year I have been impressed with the leadership and expertise of Raul, their senior electrician who always serves with a smile. Rachel at office is an exemplary assistant and is always very responsive. You cannot go wrong with Yaakov and his team!-TS/ Howell, NJ
Yaakov, I wanted to take the time out to thank you for a truly wonderful experience. It was a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for your honesty, integrity and impeccable work ethic. Jonathon, Raul and the other gentlemen that did the work at my home were hard working and just wonderful to be around. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Please send me a sign for my lawn or business cards so I can refer my neighbors.-Robin/Toms River, NJ
Great dealer with the best price.
Just had a 16 kW Whole House generator installed by Yaakov and his team. Awesome experience from contract signing, permit process, installation and final inspections. Would highly recommend this company for Generator installation as well as other electrical jobs. Best price from the start out of 5 PowerPro Elite quotes I received.-Brett/Monroe Township, NJ
This company does EXCELLENT work. They are very clean and the end result exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend them.-Rich/NJ
This dealer is the best
I just had my new 14 kv GENERAC Standby Generator installed by your Serviceman. All of the installers were all very friendly and professional. They explained just about every phase of the installation. Most serviceman just go about their business and don't say a word but these guys joked around with me and each other which made me feel great. I highly recommend your Company to anyone who is interested in a standby generator. Thank you for the great presentation that was given to my wife and I which helped us to make up our minds. I also want to thank you for the prompt and courteous help over the phone with Permits and scheduling.-Tim/Toms River, NJ
A Highly Recommended Company
I have owned a Generac generator for more than six years - five when I lived in PA and for the past year in NJ. In fact, my first purchase when I moved to NJ last year was to order a Generac generator for my home here. Also, I was extremely fortunate to have selected For-Tech for the purchase and installation of the generator. From start to finish,the entire process from purchase, permits, installation and follow-up inspections went very smoothly. For-Tech did everything. In my opinion, having a generator (especially my success with Generac) is more of a necessity than a frill. I purchased a whole house Generac so in the event there is no electricity, everything will continue to operate as always. Knowing that light, heat and air will always be available even for extended periods of time is a great comfort. Food won’t spoil and since I have a pet, I don’t have to worry about a shelter or a hotel that accepts pets. Both of my Generacs have been most reliable. In fact last week the electricity went out after dark and before I could reach in the drawer for a flashlight, the generator came on and everything functioned as normal. I highly recommend For-Tech as a company because of their professionalism, fair pricing and excellent installation. Every For-Tech employee has been helpful, friendly, cooperative and extremely capable.-Betty/Little Egg Harbor, NJ
This dealer is the BEST!
The consultation was set for a time which was good for me. The job was done very professionally - clean, with a smile, workers in uniform, high standard job. Inspection passed immediately. The company is easy to call - they answer in person (no answer machine), my questions were answered in minutes, maintenance service in time. Would like to make a claim, but cannot find for what to make. EXCELLENT COMPANY!-Fred/Holmdel, NJ
I wish everyone ran their business this way
My frustration, in finding responsive vendors for my home repair needs, completely dissolved with this top-notch vendor. He came down to give us an estimate exactly when he said he would. He was polite, thorough, understandable, and very professional, prepared with an iPad Tablet with all the costs of our new generator and the choices we had available. I've honestly never seen anyone in Lakewood who did this, even though I built a house from scratch. Then we received a steady stream of email notices about the progress of our installation, and exactly when the next appointment would be. This was reassuring, and also very professional. We didn't have to keep calling to find out when we could expect the next step,.To top it all off, he gave us a price, and then called us up to give us a discount, because he was running a promotional ad and we hadn't asked about the discount, so HE told US about it! I'm sure he didn't go to Harvard to get an MBA, but somewhere along the way this man learned was it takes to run a business professionally and honestly. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. And, the generator seems to be working as promised, although we haven't had any blackouts yet, but once a week we hear it running as a test run. Frankly, I think he should start a business-mentoring firm in Lakewood, as he could teach the other vendors how to really run a business well. I wish he ran a few other businesses that I could use for my other home maintenance needs.-Southlake, Lakewood, NJ
Ideal Company for Generator Installation!
Now that the installation of my new Generac unit is complete, fully inspected and operating, I just wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with all of my dealings with your company. From my first contact when your representative came to my home to provide a quote for the job, I was impressed with the professional and friendly manner in which every phase of my transaction was handled. It was obvious and comforting that your personnel were very knowledgeable about the product and its installation. In the course of finalizing the contract, I appreciated receiving your detailed written description of the various steps that would be involved, from the obtaining of necessary permits, to the delivery, installation and wiring of the unit by your personnel, to the coordination with your plumbing contractor who installed the gas line to the actual start up of the unit to the final inspections by the local construction department, I knew exactly what to expect. Better yet, everything went exactly as you originally indicated. The Fortech electricians who installed the unit were extremely professional and courteous. They went about the work in a neat and craftsman like manner and left the job site completely clean. When they returned for the start up they were very thorough in explaining how the unit functions, service requirements, etc. On top of all of that, your pricing was very fair, and I was very comfortable with your staged payment plan under which I made the final payment only after everything was installed, inspected by the local construction department and fully operating. I would enthusiastically recommend Fortech Electric as the ideal source for any residential generator installation!-R.Whitman/Beachwood, New Jersey
Thank you for Peace of Mind!
Just a note to commend and thank everyone in your company for installing the Generac generator in my house. I would like to extend a personal thank you to Rachel and your staff for the many hours of coordination in getting the generator into place. Your patience was recognized again and again as you explained to me what was occurring and why. The technician was prompt, polite, and clean. He explained things to me and made sure I understood everything before he left. As a woman, I worry about power failures in the winter which would compromise my heating system leading to broken pipes. For-Tech Electric has given me “peace of mind” and great confidence to avoid such a situation. Obviously, I don’t ever want to go through another power outage of any duration, but if I do, I feel totally confident that the choice I made with Generac and For-Tech Electric will pay me dividends for years to come. My neighbor and friend recommended your company to me. I am so glad she did. It is a combination of great management and service that make a company a winner. Thanks again for all your help and a job well done.-E. Cruz, Lakewood, NJ

EASY to work with!
EASY to work with, Reasonably priced. and Flexible payment options. Independant Inspectors said they did a great job. Very sensitive about my wife's concerns about the generator being an eyesore on our property. Worked with us during installation to cut the power for the least amount of time and at the most convenient time. All in all very satisfied. Thanks Again!-Eli H, Lakewood, NJ
Everyone from For-Tech did an outstanding job. Everyone was very professional, competent and friendly. The generator and the additional electrical work that I requested was expertly done in the time frame promised and at a fair price.

Thank You for one of my best investments!
Gentlemen: As my area recovers from Hurricane Sandy, I just wanted to thank you, and say that one of my best investments has been the installation of a Generac 20/18 KW model 5874 w/Nexus Smart Switch, last winter! Although I wasn't affected by Hurricane Irene, in August 2011, I saw how it devastated friends in the area, who had no power up to a week. Even those who had portable generators, weren't able to cool or heat their homes! Hurricane Sandy had my neighborhood without power for a full week, but at least I was able to maintain a semblance of normalcy, with heat, hot water, a fully functional kitchen, laundry, and garage door openers when needed. That first day we lost power, I was able to offer neighbors hot coffee, freezer space for perishables, and a place to visit & warm up when their own homes dropped to 50 degrees! And when utility power was restored, I was probably the first to know, because the generator shut off! I'm also grateful to For-Tech Electric, in Lakewood, NJ, for installing my generator, at a much better price than that offered by the local gas utility. For-Tech's Yaakov Forchheimer understood the purpose & operation of the "smart switch", which was more than I could say for the gas company representative! For-Tech was also very responsive, when I called to say that I couldn't get the cover unlocked, to shut the generator off at night. I didn't have any phone service, and had to call from a friend's office, but their technician showed up at my door a few hours later, to unlock the generator & service it! I've recommended Generac & For-Tech to a number of friends, since Sandy hit the Jersey shore!-Eve H. - Brielle, NJ
