GenerLink™ Transfer Switch
Connecting a Portable Generator is Now Safe and Easy with GenerLinkTM
Steuben Rural Electric Cooperative now offers GenerLinkTM. GenerLinkTM is a new five-inch meter device that makes connecting a portable generator safe and easy. The GenerLinkTM transfer switch will allow members to connect an 8500 watt or less portable generator to their home during power outages.
- GenerLinkTM eliminates the use of extension cords and other connections that can be hazardous to members and SREC personnel.
- GenerLinkTM detects when a generator is operating and automatically disconnects from the utility grid, eliminating dangerous backfeed.
- GenerLinkTM is equipped with GenerLockTM, a unique interlocking power cord system that provides a quick and easy connection of a portable generator.
- GenerLinkTM is installed by SREC personnel and does not require the member to be home.
- GenerLinkTM is easily installed behind a member’s electric meter (200-amp meter base) and requires no rewiring of the member’s electrical system.
- With GenerLinkTM, members have the flexibility to run virtually any appliance, up to the capacity of their generator by simply energizing appliances from their breaker panel.
Steuben Rural Electric charges $653.00 plus tax. The transfer switch comes with a 20 ft. cord. The installation by Steuben Rural Electric is FREE.
Please note that not all generators are compatible with these devices. A list of compatible generators can be found at www.generlink.com/auxiliary-power.html.
