Whole Home Generator
The Whole House Generator Load Control Program is available to all residential customers who have a whole-house generator with a transfer switch. We install an internal disconnect meter at no charge that allows us to transfer your electric load from the grid to your generator during peak demand or emergencies. In exchange for the ability to control the load, you pay a lower energy and distribution charge for all consumption on the meter.
Control can occur anytime, although typical control time will not exceed eight hours per day or 400 hours per year. Besides the one-time cost for the generator, you should also take into account the cost of fuel to operate the generator when considering this program.
