Benefits of GenerLink™
How does GenerLink™ work?
GenerLink™ is a five-inch device that is installed behind your electric meter by your local utility or licensed electrical contractor. When you connect a portable generator to GenerLink™ and start it up, GenerLink™ automatically disconnects your house from the electric utility grid preventing the possibility of back feed, which can damage equipment and harm utility personnel.
Because GenerLink™ is designed and rated to connect directly to a standard household electric service of 200 amps or less, all you have to do to operate a critical appliance is flip a breaker on in the household breaker panel once the generator is connected and operating. GenerLink™ eliminates the hassles of running multiple extension cords or hiring an electrician to install an expensive transfer switch and sub-panel that limits the number of appliances you can operate.
1. GenerLink™ is an innovative solution for using a portable generator easily, safely and affordably.
2. During a power outage with GenerLink™ simply turn off the breakers in your home’s circuit panel…
3. Plug in your Generator…
|4. Start it up …|
5. And select the applicances you want to power through your home’s circuit panel. The combination of appliances can be changed at any time.
|6. Your household is up and running during a power blackout.|

How to Size
The wattages presented in this table are estimates. The actual wattage required for your appliances can be calculated. Remember that 1kW = 1000 watts, 2kW = 2000 watts, etc.
Running Watts = Volts x Amps
Rule of thumb: allow 2kW/Horse Power for appliances with motors. Some motors can require up to 3 times the running wattage to start.
Always use starting wattage when calculating electrical load requirements for your generator. Select the appliances you want to operate and add the starting wattages together to determine if they can all be operated at the same time without exceeding the limits of your generator. Remember that circuit breakers usually control more than one appliance.

GenerLink won’t work with an A Base Meter
|Old Style Meter (A Base)||New Style Meter|
The older style A base meters will not accommodate the GenerLink even with the S base adaptor due to the lack of a grounding location or internal path to the grounding area.
Do not let your electrician drill holes in the sides of the A base to sneak the wire out side the upper meter section and back to the lower section.
The only other option is to get a newer base meter installed which Generator Solutions can do for an additional cost. If you do so desire a new meter base to be installed with the Generlink please note that on the GenerLink Request Install.
Download our list of compatible generators to make sure yours will work with GenerLink.
