PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION IS AN IMPORTANT SAFETY STEP
During long-term power outages many rely on portable generators for emergency power. The growing popularity of portable electric generators has resulted in millions being placed in homes and small businesses across the nation. But it’s estimated only a small percentage are hooked up correctly. If installed and operated correctly, use of standby or portable electric generators poses little danger.
Consumers Energy urges co-op members to understand the proper safety steps that must be taken and to use a licensed professional to properly connect the generator into their system.
