Annual Maintenance Services

Cantor's John M. did my annual service. I had a question on last year's summary and asked him. He explained . I had watched the original Generac service man during his first visit to see what was under the hood several years ago. John M. was underway so I decided to watch. His work was as professional as the Generac warranty service man. I give him 5 stars. Harris Johnson

Wonderful Experience!

From start to finish we had a great experience with Canter Power Systems. Canters team helped us work through several design options and their team made sure to answer all my questions along the way. From the design stage, to reviewing financing options, and a smooth installation I couldn’t recommend Canter Power Systems more.

Perfect solar installation experience

After getting other solar quotes, I went with Canter Power Systems for my system. What a great decision! Canter's sales person explained everything about the size and operation of the system, as well as what I should expect on future power bills. Other solar companies don't feel truthful, but Canter explained it all. The installation itself only took 3 days in total. Ever since, the system has done exactly what it was advertised to do and I love seeing the daily results!

Canter Power Systems Experience

I am absolutely satisfied with Canter Power Systems, Mr. Miller was extremely knowledgeable, professional and courteous at our meeting. The staff at Canter Power Systems has kept me up todate each week on the progress of my installation. I have already recommended them to several friends and family.
