I bought a 10 circuit transfer panel for 400 bucks and Matt (butterfish) installed it and then I bought a 7500 watt generator for about a thousand. it powers everything we’d need, including the well. Most lights/outlets etc etc. so for about $1500 I’m covered if we ever lose power. I lost probably $500 in food when we lost it in October of last year when we lost it for 2 days, so it was kind of a no brainer. The generac systems are obviously very nice and hands off which is a plus; but for the amount we actually lose power here, 10 grand was a lot 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
