The question is whether the installation, maintenance and/or repair of generator systems is an “Essential Service” allowing you to continue to work on our projects even during “Shelter in Place” or other activity restricting orders. The simple answer is, absolutely.
Attached you will find the Official Declaration of “Essential Services” from the US Department of Homeland Security. In the document you will find that it states the following work is considered “Essential”:
“Workers who maintain, insure, or restore the generation, transmission and distribution of electric power…”
“Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation and essential operation of residences”
Because you are considered “essential workers,” this allows you “to continue to work during periods of community restriction, access management, social distancing, or closure orders/directives…”
Therefore, all operations providing installation, maintenance, or repair services for generator systems are allowed to continue without interruption.
Please print a copy of the attached declaration and have a copy in your office, and on each of your service vehicles. If questioned, you can show the questioning party the document, which should answer their questions concerning your ability to continue your services.
