Installing portable generator wiring has never been in higher demand, especially here in New Jersey after hurricane Irene, the horrific snow storm in October 2011, and super storm Sandy. Our infrastructure is dated and itís anyone guess when power can be restored after these storms. Portable generator wiring is an affordable alternative to standby generators and Classic Electric offers expert installation.

We highly suggest purchasing a 5 kilowatt generator (minimum) from Generac who are the industry leaders in portable and standby generators. It has been our experience that these generators are the most reliable with unmatched dependability when you need back up electrical generator service. We can help you choose which generator is best and have it assembled for you and delivered right to your home.

Portable generator wiring installation usually takes one work day to complete. The system includes (1) interlocking manual transfer switch, (1) 30 amp, 240 volt circuit, (1) 30 amp, 240 volt inlet device box, and a 15í flexible cord for connection to your generator. A full demonstration is included. Conditions do vary and a free on-site visit is required prior to installation date. Please call or email with any additional questions.

Getting Started
Portable generator wiring begins with a call to Classic Electric. We will set an appointment at your convenience to visit with you to discuss your options and address your concerns. This process starts by inspecting your main breaker electrical panel.

Interlocking Manual Transfer Switch
A main breaker is required to fit the interlocking manual transfer switch so it can work in conjunction with the new 30 amp generator main circuit breaker. The transfer switches main function is to prevent both main breakers from being on simultaneously. This is what prevents generator power from flowing back on to the utility side of your electrical service. This is a requirement of the National Electric Code.

Generator Circuit
The new generator main breaker derives itís power from a 30 amp, 240 volt circuit which allows for 7,200 watts of power to safely be carried from the portable generator to the main breaker panel.  Sometimes this ciruit can be short, sometimes long, it all depends upon where the inlet device box is located on the exterior of the home.

Inlet Device Box
The inlet device box should be located in an area convenient to where the generator will be when you need it. We try to keep in mind the emergency conditions that may exist like a giant snow storm that leaves 4í of snow or dangerous wind, lightning, and rain. Youíll want to have the inlet device box - which connects to your portable generator - within 15í of the proposed generator location so connection will be convenient. Weíll provide you with a custom made cord to suit your needs for wherever you decide to set up your portable generator.

Flexible Outdoor Cord
The custom made flexible cord we provide is rugged and rated for outdoor use. It comes with (2) 30 amp rated twistlock cord bodies for a secure electrical connection. The twist-lock cord bodies, which are required by the code, prevents the flexible cord from accidentally coming undone from either the generator or the inlet device box. This is a nice feature thatíll give you peace of mind when running your portable generator.

1) Turn main breaker OFF
2) Turn all circuit breakers OFF
3) Slide Interlock plate up
4) Connect cord and start generator
5) Turn generator breaker ON
