Homeowners are purchasing portable generators in record numbers to power critical appliances such as furnaces, pumps, refrigerators and freezers during a power outage. If you have a standby generator for emergencies, it is a National Electric Code requirement that you also have an appropriate "double throw" transfer switch installed.
Firelands Electric Cooperative offers a simple, safe and reasonably priced device to allow you to connect a generator to your home's electric system at the electric meter. The GenerLink makes it easy to connect your portable generator and supply standby power to any circuit in your home. The device is a meter collar that is installed by Firelands' technicians behind your electric meter. You simply plug one end of a power cable into the Generlink and plug the other end into your generator.
GenerLink devices may be purchased by members of Firelands Electric Co-op and installation at the home's electric meter is FREE. The cooperative offers a 12 month interest free payment plan, and purchase is as follows:
