Yes, it is essential to regularly maintain your power distribution equipment to avoid having to make costly emergency repairs. The most straightforward way to keep your equipment in good shape is to keep it clean. Contaminants like liquid, dust and dirt can easily jeopardize an electrical system. Before cleaning your equipment, always make sure it is completely powered off. We recommend double-checking your equipment with a voltmeter to ensure the equipment is powered down and safe to handle.
To connect a portable generator and electrical panel, you should ensure that a transfer switch has been installed. The transfer switch should be connected to your home or work structure’s electrical system, acting as the “bridge” between it and a generator. Plug one end of the power cord into the transfer switch and the other into the generator. Turn on the generator to produce power for the structure.
