A portable generator can be a valuable investment when power goes out to your home. Commercial buildings often have a transfer switch built in their electrical panel. But what do you do if you are a residential home? Without a transfer switch, you can’t plug a generator into your homes electrical panel. Instead, you will need to run extension cords to your appliances and household devices.
A solution we have found is the generator interlock kit. It is an affordable and reliable alternative to a commercial transfer switch. It is a very easy system to run for you or your loved ones. Just plug your generator in, flip the interlock and you have POWER!
Our licensed and experienced electricians mount the interlock kit to your electrical panel. Once installed, you will be able to safely power your devices. The kit acts as a manual transfer switch, so multiple power sources cannot run at the same time. As an additional benefit, it can also help protect line workers who are restoring power once the main power to your home comes back on, avoiding a back-flow of electricity.
