Emergency Standby Generators

Emergency generators improperly connected can create a very dangerous condition.  Please contact the Cooperative before installing standby generators.  Stand-by generators require the installation of a "double-throw" switch to prevent interconnection with the utility grid.  When your stand-by generator is being operated, a double-throw switch will help:

  • Protect the public, your neighbors and the Cooperative's personnel from accidental electrocution.
  • Protect the electric equipment belonging to you or your neighbor from serious damage.
