4 steps for home generator installation

STEP 1: Choose a location

  • An in-home consultation will help you pick a location for the generator

The location should meet these Guidelines:

  • A stable, well-drained area that will not flood
  • The room around the generator for the technician and maintenance personnel
  • Keep in mind homeowners association and community restrictions when choosing a site.

Approximate Clearances to keep in mind:

  • 45 cm from the house
  • 1.5 m from doors, windows, and fresh air intakes
  • 1m in front of the generator for servicing room

The closer the site is to a natural gas line and the electric meter, the more you can save on installation costs for your home 50 Hz Home backup generator.

STEP 2: Installation

  • Prepare the site with a concrete slab or pea gravel
  • Place generator on the concrete slab/ gravel

STEP 3: Connecting fuel and electrical

  • Fuel line is connected
  • Transfer switch installed next to the main breaker box
  • The transfer switch senses where the power is coming from and when to switch over to generator power

STEP 4: Outage simulation

  • Technician checks that everything works as it should
  • Set up weekly self-test to ensure everything continues to function as normal

ECOGEN 15KW GENERATOR FEATURES AND BENEFITS

MODEL #7163

Whether the off-grid lifestyle is a choice or a necessity, you are responsible for producing the energy you consume – even when there’s no sun or wind. Ensure you never have dead batteries with the Generac EcoGen–the only automatic standby generator designed and warrantied specifically for off-grid use with an alternative energy system.

Unlike competitive units that run at a constant speed, patented G-Flex technology allows the Generac EcoGen to run at lower speeds when household electrical demand is light. That means significantly quieter operation at normal capacity, less fuel consumption when you need less electricity, and cleaner power than competitive air-cooled home standby.

Innovative Extended Run Capability oil circulation system extends the maintenance intervals by an unprecedented 5 times the industry standard by offering 500 hour maintenance intervals.
