If you live in New England, in the country, chances are you have your own well and septic system, with water supplied by an electric power pump. Of course you also have all of the other electric needs for power, even though we can get heat and even cook on the woodstove. So a gas generator is great, but they are a pain to wire into your breaker box and can also be dangerous if you turn on your MAIN while the generator is turned on. You will either toast a utility worker out there on the line someplace. (frowned upon), or you will fry all the electrics in your home. So what you need is a fail safe switch capability that allows only the Main to be turned on and NOT the generator, or ONLY the generator and NOT the MAIN. It would also be great to have a power inlet you can easily feed your generator power into the house with. Something that is easily accessible and weather proof. Here's what you can do.
