But, now I need clarification: If I were to get two of these, and install each one between the breaker on the main panel and the subsection which it controls, would this be code compliant? If not, why not? I'm still meeting NEC 230.7, as far as I can tell.
Maybe this is easiest way to not need any new panel.. Kind of clever design
Still seems like an awful lot of work and expense for the utilization of a 5500 watt generator, which in itself won't handle too large of a load. If the plan it to get a larger generator to backup the house I could understand the work and expense. But for a generator that can satisfy 6 or 8 circuits at best, I think the small generator transfer panel is the least costly and most effective....and again...just my humble opinion....
Do you want it your way or the right way?
