Below is a photo of a generator located at one of the new bank branches we just bought and will be absorbing in December. Facilities manager says he doesn't want it and would consider it a favor if it disappeared. I have no idea of the size or even the fuel, but I sure wouldn't mind having a nice generator for those times when the power actualyl does go out at home. The one issue (apart from the weight) I have is that it hasn't been exercised since it was put in...as a Y2K contingency plan. So I'm wondering if its worth investigating or not when I go out there. Branch is about 90 minutes away from me and I'll be heading there in the next week or so and then continuously for a month. If its worth checking it out, what should I be looking for? How can I tell if its seized, what fuel it runs on (I think it has to be either deisel, gasoline or propane since there are no public utilities like natural gas at this location), whats its output capacity, etc. Would this be to big to hook up to a house or is there even such a thing? My home is a typical modern home in that its fed by a 200a service off the grid, we use somewhere between 400-600kwh a month depending on the season. Thanks in advance.
