Hi Ray, I just want to say that we lost power for 6.5 hours yesterday in Morristown. Our generator performed flawlessly from start to finish. Hats off to you & staff on a job WELL DONE! Thanks again

Klas Electrical has completed extensive electrical work on our two homes in Summit for the past nine years. In the Winter and Spring of 2005, they completed a full turn-key, electrical retrofit/upgrade, including lighting and security, during a five month gut home renovation of our previous home. In the Fall of 2011, they completed a major renovation on the main floor of our previous home installing a full audio and visual system with limited disruption to our daily activities. In the Winter of 2012, they completed a turn-key installation of a state of the art automated lighting system, including all new wiring and lighting, along with a full Audio and Visual system throughout our newly purchased home. They have also installed a full house generator at both homes . Importantly, our home generator operated flawlessly from the first loss of power during Hurricane Sandy until the restoration of power to our home 12 days later! Ray Klas and team went the extra mile and came by every couple of days during the power failure to check on us and the generator.
Their electricians are knowledgeable and highly experienced in the newest technology/developments for both interior and exterior lighting as well as full home generators. Klas Electrical are extremely service-oriented, reliable and professional in both their advice and installations. We continue to recommend Klas Electrical to our friends and neighbors for unbeatable quality and service!

I can not say enough about KLAS ELECTRIC! Reliability is their standard. They have provided a wide scope of services for both my home and business, from installing and maintaing my natural gas generator, to upgrading my entire homes electrical service, to repairing electrical problems within my office. They are incredibly quick to respond to emergencies and go the extra mile to ensure reliability and safety. Their professionalism exceeds expectations and I know I'm getting the BEST!
Chris and Barbara CoatesSummit
Klas Electric does great work and is very customer oriented! They did our exterior lighting when we first moved into our house, and installed our generator, which we had put in after Hurricane Irene. For both projects, they provided expert advice in the planning, navigated the process and worked efficiently in doing a quality install. They are great with follow-up, whether with questions or proactively checking in before storms. The generator worked flawlessly during Sandy and for other small outages, and Klas has been attentive throughout. They are great to work with and we could not be more pleased with the results for both projects. We have recommended Klas to friends who have also had nice experiences.

Klas Electrical Contractors installed a generator at our home. They were prompt in providing an accurate estimate of the cost, installed the generator on schedule with no problems, and gave us a short course on how to maintain the reliable operation of this equipment. It was a textbook experience in how home projects should be conducted. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.
Greg MayesSummit, NJ
"Detailed follow-up is what you can expect. Don't you hate it
when chasing contractors is as tough as doing the job yourself? You can
expect professional and prompt follow-up to any inquiries and without a
question the work is done to the highest level of any standards."
W. BirnbaumMorris County, NJ
After Hurricane Sandy, we wanted a new Gererac model to replace our older generator. From the initial call to Klas Electric, we had confidence that we were with the RIGHT company: the professionalism of Ray Klas, his son Ray and foreman Louis and every worker connected to the project. They were a pleasure to have on the premises. We may never have another Sandy, but we both sleep soundly at night knowing that everything in our entire house is covered on the generator. This job was practically stress free and done correctly from the get go. Klas electric goes above and beyond!
Ken V.Summit, NJ
I wanted you to know how pleased Julie and I are with the installation of our house generator by your team of technicians. Your staff were very professional and took the time to explain what each size generator had to offer and what would work best for our family needs.
The coordination from permit to final approval was exactly as described.
In the past several months we been on emergency power for a few hours and it really gives us comfort that we continue to have power for heat, lights and most importantly our sump pumps will continue to operate even if we are not home during an electrical outage.
Janet and Doug MolstadMadison, NJ
We've worked with Klas Electric several times over the last two years, big and small jobs. From the prep work and installation of a generator to light fixtures and replacement of smoke detectors, Klas has always been prompt, professional and neat and clean. Ray, Louie and all of the employees are very knowledgable and friendly and get the work done in a timely manner. We would recommend Klas Electric to anyone needing electrical work done.
Lucia P.Chatham, NJ
When you build a house, you have to partner with a lot of different contractors. Based on our experience, I can confidently say that Klas Electric is one of the best contractors we've worked with since building our house in 2008. They are truly experts that know they're business inside and out. We spoke to several electricians when deciding on an emergency generator to run our whole house, and Klas gave us a clear explanation of our options, the pros and cons and the costs. There were no games, no deal making, just good, honest customer service.
Jon S.Summit, NJ
"What I appreciate most about Klas Electric is that when I call them, I have 100% confidence the job will be done properly and to an exacting standard. They will recommend the right fixtures and components both functionally and aesthetically, they will show up when promised, they will be careful in my house, and they will do the job correctly and meticulously. We have used Klas Electric on a number of projects in our house over several years and their work has withstood the test of time. We are very pleased with the end result."
We purchased our 20kw Kohler standby generator from Klas Electric in late 2012, after “Sandy” left us with no power for almost a week. We shopped around and decided on Klas for several reasons.
First of all Ray Klas responded quickly to my phone inquiry. Believe it or not some people took days to respond and one I actually called back to see if they were even interested.
Second, Ray Klas made an appointment to call on us and go over the pros and cons of different brands, the size options, depending on what circuits we wanted to cover, and answered any questions we had.
Third, they are local, if you need service, you want somebody who is close, and will respond quickly.
We found that the crew at Klas were easy to work with, kept us informed as to the progress of installation, are neat and clean, thoughtful, nice people. In short we recommend Klas Electric and Kohler generators.
Since Sandy we have had only one outage that lasted 3 hours. The power went out and the Kohler kicked in, in ten seconds. Everything, including the central air, worked as if we were on regular power.
Rob L., Woodward PropertiesSummit / Berkeley Heights, NJ
“Thanks for the work you’ve done for my business and my family over the past few years. I appreciate your team’s professionalism, expertise, and ability to problem solve on the fly, when confronted with an unforeseen challenge. I am happy not only to be able to call on you for issues related to properties that we manage, rent, and sell, but to recommend your services to our clients and friends with confidence.”
After the second time we had to leave home because of no power, I decided it was time for a generator. But, who to call? A friend recommended KLAS and when I saw a KLAS ad in the newspaper "WHO ARE YOU GOING TO CALL WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT?". That did it! Ray Klas came to the house and explained what type of generator we needed and what the installation would involve. A competent, polite and dedicated crew did a great job. Our thanks to all.
Betsy and John CrosbySummit, NJ
"Ray Klas is diligent and caring. He has even followed up on a concern with us asking us how we are faring with a particular challenge. With Hurricane Sandy, Ray reached out to clients before the storm hit to let them know that he was available to help. Not many people would take this initiative!
