Backup Power for the
A Whole House Transfer Switch is for portable generator owners who are interested in home backup power. Whole House switches can provide power to hard-wired loads such as your home’s furnace, water heater, well pump, or lights.
Whole House Transfer Switches include a 200 Amp utility main. Designed to mount on the outside of a house or building next to the utility meter, it connects to the load center, located indoors on the other side of the wall. The Whole House Transfer Switch allows you to feed generator power to your entire load center and manually turn off selected loads up to the capacity of the generator. The transfer switch includes a locking plug for generator cord connection and extra spaces for up to 12 branch circuits to feed other panels like a barn, detached garage, or workshop.
