Questions & Answers

Can I personally install the generlink on my house

Asked by: Dave
Can you? That depends upon your experience and understanding of what you're doing. There are several ways for this to go sideways. Some of those involve an arc flash -- the arc flash is the result of a short circuit that produces molten metals that expand to 600 times their normal dimension while being ejected from the meter base by an explosion that would take place right there in your face while you plug in either the switch or the meter. Trying to side step this fireball would be like trying to dodge a bullet. There are too many variables, meter types and configurations, and other information that are unknown to be able to answer the question yes or no. You might get lucky; you might spend the rest of your short life with the skin falling off your face, having part of your back side grafted onto your face and hands, or something equally painful and disgusting. Plugging in a meter can be like looking down the barrel of a shotgun -- you have to fully understand every aspect of it to know whether or not you can do this safely. At a minimum you would need personal protective gear; i.e., a hard hat, safety glasses, a face shield, gloves, glove liners, over-glove protectors, FR clothing rated for the incident heat possible at the calculated fault current available at that location, and more. These things alone will cost more than hiring a pro to do this for you. If you were extremely lucky in the worst-case-scenario, and you dodge the personal injury bullet, then there is still the potential to destroy the electric service to your house and / or cause a fire or both. The only current limitation at the meter connection is on the utility side of the transformer -- the let-through current before that fuse will blow can be thousands of amps, maybe tens of thousands creating an arc that can last for several cycles. If things go sideways, then the result will be something you will never forget -- if you survive it. There is not enough time or space on the internet to explain all of that to you. Hire a professional. Get the permit. The whole thing will cost you less than the first five minutes in the emergency room or the ambulance ride to get you there. You don't want your wife's or your husband's last memory of you to be the way your burnt flesh tasted while she / he gave you CPR. If you want to save a few bucks, then change the oil in your lawnmower. Don't try this. This is not a, "hold my beer and watch this," operation. The risk vs reward equation is way too heavily weighted against you. Oh, and there are other issues -- even if you do it and nothing bad happens immediately -- like getting sideways with the Local Code Authority (Inspector) and your Electric Utility Company. Too dramatic? Google or YouTube "arc flash".

is this item allowed to be hooked up to existing out door meter in Paco County FL. My outdoor meter says it is CL 200 but I have two 150 amp breaker panels side by side in my garage. it seems to me that I only have 200 amp service but two 150 amp breaker panels... Thank You
Asked by: Goose
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?

Asked by: Monk20363
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.

GenerLink 30 Amp Meter Mounted Transfer Switch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.

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.

GenerLink's installation instructions (used by electrician) doesn't include any testing procedures to check proper functioning of this transfer switch. Subsequent to installation by electrician, I did my own testing with portable generator, based in part on troubleshooting section of GenerLink's owners manual. Utility power was always present during my testing, and this was confirmed by green indicator light always illuminated. After shutting off all house loads at existing main circuit panels, connected GenerLink cord between portable generator and GenerLink Transfer Switch, then started portable generator. At this point both green and blue [alternate power source] GenerLink indicator lights illuminated, and presumed source of electrical power to house had automatically been switched to portable generator. Gradually turning on house loads at main circuit panels did seem to add those loads to portable generator (based on sound of generator). While on generator power (5 to 10 minutes) did not notice any change in Utilities meter digital reading. Shutting off portable generator did automatically return utility power to house loads. Believe I did hear a clunk sound (as opposed to clicking sounds) at GenerLink Transfer Switch as house loads switched back to utility. Testing should have been done with two people, one always at the GenerLink Transfer Switch to observe indicator lights, sounds and utility meter. Consequently don't known if red fault indicator light flashed on during automatic switching of power supply sources. House loads apparently remained below 30 amps during testing, as did not see yellow indicator light illuminate, and portable generator's 30 amp circuit breaker did not trip. As best as I can determine without actual utility power outage, believe GenerLink Transfer Switch does function as advertised. Do believe it's an overpriced transfer switch, only justified by likely higher installation (wiring) costs of simple manual transfer switch inside house at main circuit panels.

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.
