Life Is Better With Power
It’s a hot stormy night in Texas, and you’re awakened in the dark by a sudden noise. Sitting up in bed you try to turn on the lamp with no success. As you stumble around in the dark for the light switch that isn’t working—it dawns on you. The power is out.
Time for a stuffy, sleepless night with no AC. Who knows when the power will come back on? Once the sun comes up, it’s time to think about food. The refrigerator food will start going bad, the water dispenser is off, and your microwave is a useless hole in the wall. The cherry on top? No internet access. Not to mention it’s getting unbearably hot inside. Now you’re stranded in a hot, useless home with no idea of when you’ll get power again.
For some people in Texas, this is a common unfortunate experience due to stormy climates and outdated power grids. Texas weather is unpredictable, and with hurricanes like Rita, Harvey, the great freeze of 2021, and more chaotic events—the power grid is useless.
Prepare for the Unexpected
Our outdated electrical grid is in desperate need of renovations, causing frequent blackouts and power outages. Not only that, hackers often try to gain control of the power grid and stop the flow of electricity to U.S. homes and businesses. For decades, Joshua Keller watched the failing infrastructure of the power grid and estimated the future devastation that would occur.
Hurricane Rita struck in 2005, causing $23.9 billion in damage and 126,000 people to lose power.
Hurricane Harvey in 2017 was the second most damaging hurricane in U.S. history since 1980. A category 4 at landfall, this hurricane caused $125 billion in damages—more than any other natural disaster in U.S. history except Hurricane Katrina. Nearly 3 weeks after the storm, at least 3,900 homes were still without power.
Texas Winter Storm 2021
If you think that’s a lot of homes without power, get ready for the kicker: the Texas winter storm of February 2021 is called the “Texas power crisis” by many. The winter storms that blew across the country caused the worst energy infrastructure failure in Texas history. This left over 5 million people without power, and 11 million people experiencing outages, some for more than 3 days.
“With Hurricane Rita, we saw that there really weren’t enough good, quality installers and good, quality service companies,” said Keller. “You had a lot of bad installations and very few people were taking care of the generators.” He adds, “We wanted to come in and provide five-star service, along with top quality installations.”
A Backup Power Solution
Keller started Grasten Power Technologies to be more than a generator dealer, but a backup power solution. For 15 years, Grasten has remained a trusted name in the Greater Houston area for reliable service and excellent backup power solutions. With a dream team of licensed electricians, concrete professionals, installers and a master technician—you can trust Grasten to provide reliable and knowledgeable service.
Keep your home, business or facility operating at all times with 24/7 emergency services. When you work with Grasten Power Technologies, you can rest easy knowing that the power is in your own hands.
Grasten provides only the highest quality generators, with brands like Generac, Kohler, Briggs & Stratton, and Cummins. These automatic standby generators provide you with backup power whenever you need it. If you’re away when an outage strikes, you won’t have to worry about coming home to spoiled food or uncomfortable pets. The automatic standby generators provide backup power 24/7.
Avoid common generator mistakes and malfunctions with a Grasten Installer who will get you set up the right way. The Grasten team turns complicated installations into a simple process.

Grasten also provides preventative maintenance plans to ensure smooth and consistent operation.
Over time, generators experience normal wear and tear causing them to become noisy, inefficient or even a fire hazard. When unforeseen circumstances arise, you need the guarantee of a properly working generator. The Grasten team provides full support with a team of licensed electricians, concrete professionals, installers and a master technician.
Houston’s Trusted Generator Dealer
Families, businesses and institutions all across Greater Houston have trusted Grasten as a reliable generator solution for the last 15 years. Grasten’s commitment to excellence in products, knowledge and execution has garnered them a reputation as the leading powerhouse in the industry.
Keller warns that after the freeze in 2021, many generator companies began to pop up or raise their prices, taking advantage of traumatized Texans. He explains that people should do research before choosing a generator dealer, and find one that has history and know-how in the industry.
Out of over 8,000 generator dealers nationwide, Grasten has earned excellence awards for 3 consecutive years that are only given to the top 5 dealers in the country. As the #1 rated company in Texas, Grasten’s Google, Yelp and BBB customer ratings tell it all.
“We have THE best reviews in the generator industry. On every review site, we are five-star rated, with hundreds of reviews,” says Keller. “I can confidently say that we are the best generator installation company in the region.”
Take it from satisfied customer Trish B:
“We could not have asked for better service for our Generac generator startup. Makay was an excellent technician, explained the process as he went along, and answered all our questions. He was professional, personable, informative, and very knowledgeable. The office staff has been wonderful as well. Jackie stayed in touch with me constantly through this process, answering my many questions, setting up appointments for us, and basically walking me through the process every step of the way.
Thank you for your excellent service. We are looking forward to a long relationship with Grasten and appreciate all the help we have received over the last year.”
