In the aftermath of a major storm, would you consider using a generator to maintain temporary power in your home? If so, the time to prepare for generator usage is NOW, not in the hours or days after a storm strikes.
Before you use a portable generator, you MUST enlist in the help of a qualified electrician to install a transfer switch. This will prevent a dangerous situation called “backfeeding”, which occurs when power is transferred from your generating unit back onto power lines. Should this situation occur, it would pose a lethal risk for our utility lineworkers working to restore power. Backfeeding can also cause damage to your appliances, electronics and other technology inside your home.
Contact your local, qualified electrician today and be ready to use a generator safely BEFORE a disaster strikes.
Another option available to you to safely connect a generator is GenerLink, a program offered by Southern Power District. To learn more about GenerLink, contact Sam Reinke at 800-579-3019.
