First step is determining the best location for your generator
If you are considering having a standby generator installed for your home, you may be wondering how the process works.
Typically, all necessary permits and authorizations will have to be obtained before the installation takes place.
Then, the installer will help you determine the best place to put the unit so that your landscaping is preserved as much as possible and noise is reduced. Then, the area where the generator will be located needs to be prepped. A concrete slab is usually poured and then the generator is placed on the pad once the concrete cures. Depending on the size of the unit, a forklift may be needed to put it in place. It is then bolted to the slab so that electrical work can begin.
At this point, all electricity to the customer’s home or office will be shut off. A trench may need to be dug from the generator to the fuel source. If you do not already have a natural gas tank underneath your property, one will need to be installed. Once the unit is connected to the fuel source, all of the electrical connections will be made. The technician will start the generator to make sure all components are working properly.
