Located in City of Alpine CALIFORNIA, just east of San Diego. Due to power outages. A customer requested a means to safely use generator to supply power to house refrigerator and few lights.
Installed a 200 amp normal source main with 50 amp Generator source breaker panel. Panel by Reliance, very solid well built, with copper bus. Components inside are from Siemens. Able to use Siemens, Eaton, or Square D branch circuit breakers. Comes with various sizes knock outs on bottom,top, and sides.
We simulated a loss of power and went through the procedure to safely switch the manual Transfer switch with generator as alternate source of power. Generator maintained load of refrigerator and few lights very well.
