I live in South Florida. I wanted to purchase a standby generator for my home but an odd quirk of my municipality is that there is no natural gas and they don’t allow you to bury propane tanks on the property because of flood risk and fire. As a result, I have to get as large a portable generator as I could find. I purchased a Generac 15000E. It has good reviews and the company has a really solid reputation.
Now, I have to get the transfer switch installed and set the electrical system of the home up to run off the generator. It should run just about everything except the dryer and the pool pump. As long as our AC and internet work we will be fine.
I’m asking advice from the Og because I’ve not done electrical work professionally in almost 20 years. What should I expect in terms of price for materials and install of an appropriate transfer switch by a licensed electrician? Also, is there a specific transfer switch I should be looking for? Thanks in advance.
