Questions & Answers

Will this unit work with a Interlock to power my house

Will this unit work with a Interlock to power my house
Asked by: dgtrim
The generator is designed for home backup power utilizing a transfer switch connected through the twist lock outlet to the electrical panel in the home. Connections for standby power from a portable generator to a building’s electrical system must use a listed transfer switch installed by a current licensed electrician. The connection must isolate the generator power from the utility power and must comply with all applicable laws and electrical codes.
