Our Story: Making YOUR life better, while giving YOU peace of mind…

HaleYESgenerators started in 2003 after Hurricane Isabel. One woman, two children and a husband who was installing large portable generators for restaurants and businesses. His wife and children were stranded in rural Dinwiddie County with a 3500 Watt portable generator, a can of gas and some oil strategically placed on the tailgate of a Nissan pickup truck. This droning generator supplied power to the freezer and refrigerator and would be moved to provide water and coffee as needed. No television, no phone, no stove or microwave and no lights, this woman vowed that her family would never experience this again. Tanya Hale did her research, acquired David’s business license (beginning on a Class C Contractor’s license, as a sole proprietor), business insurance, Federal Employer ID number, state business and sales tax licenses. On October 20, 2003, as David Hale returned from work and entered the doorway, Tanya presented David with Hale’s Electrical Service.

This began a career of living, sleeping, eating and breathing Generac generators. No one, including the local propane company, thought that we could ever specialize in generators and make a go of it. No one believed that we could bless enough people who needed the security and peace of mind of a backup generator to make a living. The first of many billboards went up on Route 460 in Dinwiddie and from there, the rest has been a blessing from God!

In 2007 Hale’s incorporated and became a Class A Contractor and ultimately a Small, Woman-Owned Business with 52% ownership to Tanya. This allowed doors to open that otherwise were being missed. Hurricane Irene brought Hale’s back and we remained one of the largest dealers in Central Virginia year after year since 2003. Our subcontractors were the best and our technicians highly skilled. After several weather events, Hale’s Electrical Service, Inc., The “HaleYESgenerator people” remain on top. We have since brought on our own electrical installation crews once again, the last step to bringing everything back in-house and under one roof.

In 2015 Hale’s was named Generac’s Southeast Region Dealer of the Year for their excellent customer service, attention to detail and providing the Generac Promise to their customers. The Southeast Region spans from Delaware to this side of Texas where many of Generac’s top dealers are located. This honor continues to drive staff, sales and crews to strive for being the best in the market while putting themselves in the customer’s shoes and acting accordingly in their daily interactions.

Powering Through the Storm

February 2, 2017, David Hale suffered a massive heart attack. David spent many weeks in the hospital while doctors worked to save his life.  The team at Hale’s worked extremely hard to ensure David and Tanya’s vision and Legacy of Helping Virginia take control of their power and blessing others contunied while David worked on his health. David and Tanya were overwhelmed by the tremdous support they received from the Generac world. From people David and Tanya worked with at Generac for years to other local dealers; Everyone’s thoughts prays, and kind actions helped David and Tanya power through the storm! After getting the ok from his medical team David returned to the company he started many months after his heart attack and slowy eased back into his Director of Field Operations role. Today David can be found arround the office and in the field helping teach and train the next generation of Generator Installers and Technicians.
