Our Company

JD Belcher Electric LLC of Lacon, IL was established in 2001.  Dale Belcher started the business after his retirement from Caterpillar Tractor Co.  He worked as a Journeyman Electrician at Caterpillar Tractor Co. for 30 years.

In the beginning the company’s focus was on general electrical contracting.  In 2005 we became affiliated with Generac Generators as an authorized sales, service, and warranty repair Generac dealer.  Generac Generators are manufactured in Wisconsin and are the number one selling home standby generator.  The demand for automatic home standby generators in our Central Illinois market was large and underserved by the competition.   We found that even though generators could be purchased from other businesses, there were not many full service dealers available.  We saw this as an opportunity to serve our customers better by focusing on sales, installation, service, and repair of Generac Generators throughout Lacon and surrounding areas.

In 2007 we decided to focus completely on Generac Generators.  Generac Generators are now our only business.    We have 6 Generac Certified technicians.   JD Belcher Electric now provides service to Generac Generator owners in 27 counties throughout Central Illinois.  We grew rapidly in both sales and service and achieved Generac Elite Dealer status in 2009.  In July 2012 we achieved Power Pro status which is the highest level available to residential/commercial dealers.  In 2016 we became PowerPro Premier the highest level available through Generac.  Only 3 dealers in the state are Premier. 

Our number one priority is to exceed our customers’ expectations by providing quality service and a superior product at an excellent value.  By satisfying our customers we will continue to prosper and grow.  Our staff of knowledgeable, dedicated professionals takes pride in providing outstanding, personalized service to our customers and our community.
