Can I personally install the generlink on my house

Asked by Dave September 29, 2017
7
Answers

As a building inspector NO you may not, the power company has to install it. You may need a permit depending on the type of generator, if gas lines are installed to run the generator. However for the switch alone there is not a reason in NC for the inspection department to inspect it as it is only an alteration to the power companies meter. In other words you are covered by the UL rating on the devise. But no untrained person should ever pull a meter. The fire department does not even pull a meter to fight an electrical fire. Without proper safety devices power can ARC from the lugs in the meter base through you to the ground. DONT DO IT call the power company and find out if they allow it before you buy.

does this include the power cord to go from the generator to the generlink?

Little confused here. Two say yes it comes with cord and two say no. Does it come with a standard 20 foot power cord for the respective generator or do I have to buy a Generlink Cord???????

Duke Energy told me "no way" will they allow this transfer switch to be hooked up to there outside meter. I bought a Reliance 10 circuit 30 amp manual transfer switch instead. Works great but cost over $900 to have installed.

Does this require a liscrnsed electrician? Do I need to contact electric company before installing?

If you are the owner, in most states owner can get permit and also inspection. In The Fort Myers area it is $78. Check your area and some electric companys will install. If you are timid at all around electricity, call an electrician.

Can this be used to power an electric car?

Asked by TedTesla December 31, 2017

Answers

The simple answer is "no". The receptacle will never be hot while the utility is energized because if it were, this could allow the generator to be tied directly to the utility. This could be catastrophic for the generator or worse. Essentially, only one source (the utility or receptacle) can serve the house at one time. The is the main purpose of the transfer switch.

My county did not require a permit. You would need to check with the county/city and power company you reside in.

I contacted the company as RD suggested (quick response and answered all of my questions, btw) and was told that there have been a few cases where the GenerLink sensed an issue and then blocked utility power, but they have never had a case where both utility and generator were blocked. Typically if the GenerLink blocks out utility it will still work on generator. A few possible causes of “an issue” included “over voltage from the power company, faulty voltage regulator on the generator, bugs (ants, spiders can cause damage).” Bugs inside the utility meter I assume and I didn’t understand why a bad voltage regulator on the generator would cause a block of the utility power, but that’s ok. I hope this info helps others

Gary, Thank you for your interest in the GenerLink transfer switch. The power cord that is provided with the GenerLink is a proprietary cord with the NEMA locking 20 or 30 amp plug for your generator. Please contact our office at 800-886-3837 to verify your power provider guidelines for the GenerLink.

Thank you for your review! The GenerLink was designed so you do not have to rewire into the panel and you are still able to pick and choose what you want to run up to the capacity of your generator! GlobalPowerProducts

Excellent. Enables use of all circuits in the house up to generator capacity without potentially dangerous back feeding. This unit is a perfect match for my 7.5 kW generator. Be sure to check with your local utility provider before ordering, it may not be allowed in some areas. The switch is UL listed so it was not a problem here. Easy ordering and quick delivery from Home Depot. The utility company installed it in about 30 minutes at no charge. Installation is simple but it requires breaking the seals and pulling the meter so it is definitely not DIY. The unit was installed Tuesday morning and we ran on utility power until a storm with high winds struck on Friday afternoon taking out power. Connected the generator with the included cord and began turning on the circuits I wanted to use. After power was restored, I shut down the generator and the device automatically switched back to the utility. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase. We have had it just over 3 weeks with one real test and it has worked perfectly.

The generlink transfer switch is convenient and installation friendly, (15 minute install by city utility dept. Check to determine approval). Have yet to put it through the paces, but anticipate it will function as specified per generator rating/load. And there was no charge on installation! 20' cord is standard with unit, longer can be purchased if needed. More to come.

Thank you for your review of the GenerLink transfer switch. You can always test your unit while utility power is present, please refer to the manual for the step by step process to get the GenerLink connected and running! It is important to test the unit once every month to two months to ensure everything works properly and you are able to get the generator power transferred into your panel. GlobalPowerProducts

My electric company installed the generlink in less than thirty minutes. I am very pleased with the generlink and expect it will perform as expected. I wish Home Depot could find a way to allow the 10 percent military discount for online orders.
