Generator Transfer Panel Installation

transfer switch kit

A personal note about Hurricane Sandy…
At our home here in Westbury, we were lucky enough to already have a 5500 watt standby generator hooked into a switched generator panel. When the electric goes out (which still happens in 2020!), we plug in the generator and flip the switch. Heat, the refrigerator, coffee maker, TV, DVD player, cable TV, phone, computer, internet and some lighting are on the generator. We survived very nicely. Most people have had nothing for power.
