Family-owned-and-operated contracting service

Tarheel Generator opened in 1999 as a way to offer backup power for poultry farmers before branching out to commercial, industrial, and residential customers. Our business helps people keep things running when the power goes off. We provide turn-key backup power systems that can easily kick on when the power goes out.

Our business is owned and operated by founder Brian Sharpe and his family, offering personalized service for each customer with the kind of care and compassion only found in a family-run company.

Power up your generator

Tarheel Generator makes it easy to use your backup generators by installing a manual transfer switch. When the power goes out, you can just flip the switch and watch your backup generator power everything up.

Our backup generators can power your home, protect your animals and crops, and keep the power on at a municipality or place of business. We can custom-build generators to be used at any location, as well as enclosed diesel units with a diesel tank.
