Do you need an interlocking system for your generator?
Everyone knows what a generator is, but do you know what an interlocking system is and how you and your family can benefit from one? A generator interlock kit is a device designed to allow safe backfeeding of a home through a portable generator during power outages. This eliminates unsafe generator backfeeding situations that could potentially electrocute power linemen or destroy the generator. Backfeeding occurs when electric power is being induced into the local power grid. Power flows in the opposite direction from its usual flow. Not only is this unsafe, but is illegal!
Some people have a manual transfer switch, but the problem is that you’ll need extension cords to connect all of your appliances to your generator. Running these cords through your home creates the hazards of tripping and falling, and even causing a fire. A big issue with transfer switches is that furnaces and water heaters can’t be connected by cord so these devices simply won’t work until power is restored.
We safely connect your generator to your panel without a transfer switch with an interlock kit. AJP Electric can easily mount an interlock device to your existing electrical panel. If you need to upgrade your electrical pane, we can do that too! We can even help you decide what generator to order. We can take care of everything for you, typically in one day or less.
