Installing a whole home generator is the best way to protect your home against power outages and other service interruptions. Portable generators have gained recent popularity because they provide peace-of-mind back-up power in extended outages.
Our electric cooperative’s GenerLink device makes hooking up a portable generator simple and safe. GenerLink, a five-inch device installed behind your electric meter, connects directly to a standard household electric service of 200 amps or less.
When you connect a portable generator to GenerLink, it automatically disconnects your house from the electric utility grid. This prevents backfeed, which can damage your equipment, harm utility personnel and endanger residents.
GenerLink costs $650 for the device and installation. Before your device is installed, White River Valley Electric Cooperative (WRVEC) must approve installation. Please contact us for review and approval.
