Our History

Allen Patnode, owner of Patnode Electric, started his business in 1988. Growing up, Allen learned the value of hard work first hand as he watched his father doing carpentry, roofing, and siding work as a self-employed contractor. In 1983, he graduated from Windham Regional Vocational Technical School as an electrician. Knowing what he wanted to do even before graduating, he was creating his own business card designs and laying out his vision for the future. In 1986, he took and passed his E-2 Journeyman Electrician’s test as an apprentice. Just two years later, he became a licensed E-1 Master Contractor and started Patnode Electric.

When we purchased a 10KW self-testing, Generac generator we wanted the assurance of reliable operation no matter the weather conditions. We are serviced by Patnode Electric with excellent results that have completely satisfied our expectations.read more

Allen from Patnode Electric came highly recommended when I made the decision to purchase a Generac generator. He came to my house immediately after I contacted him and fully explained the process of installing the generator and hooking it up to an existing gas line. The installation was seamless and the ongoing maintenance that Allen has provided earns Patnode Electric the five star rating. As a result, my sister has also purchased the same generator and, like me, highly recommends Allen and his team.read more

Al installed our generator three years ago. He was efficient and did a great job with the area around the installation. Always started up when power went out and fortunately only for very short periods of time. Helpful with any questions I had. Would highly recommend his.read more
