July 27, 2012: ALTERNATIVE GENERATOR, WESTFIELD MA. Alternative Generator had the privilege of working with WHDD Radio of Sharon, CT. We were recommended via word of mouth, which is the best advertising in business! We were able to give their generator a thorough inspection and diagnosed the issue the same day. Alternative Generator sourced the parts and made the fix within 24 hours; we are happy to report the system is back online and in auto which is a first in 4 years. Marshall Miles gave us some air time during his show the next day... He promised us the audio bit, so stay tuned as we will post it to this site.
