Question

Meter Socket Manual Gen Transfer Switch


I am looking to install a Manual Transfer Switch
into the Service Entry Meter Socket. This would
make the install cheap... and without having to
move the main service entrance panel or meter box.
I found an Onan Load Transfer Switch
[Model ETUMP -200A / 100A Gen side ]

...But I cannot find a dealer to buy one from.
Perhaps discontinued...???
Is this available or is there another simple solution
like this that does not require installing a new
switch box and running
wires etc?

BTW, Here is the link to the full 2pg ONAN spec
(pdf) of the image shown below:

That fiiting would need to be approved by your power company. Check to see if they will allow its use.

Meter Socket Manual Gen Transfer Switch


Thanks, Jim... I'll ask http://cmpco.com my power company.

In the mean time, I found another possibility...
http://generlink.com
I sent them an email... looks like they prefer to sell
to power companies to offer as a service...

Ok so I found GenerLink... and available from local company and works with my power company... http://generlink.com ...Looks like a smarter version of the Onan that I was looking for and didn't find. Price quote was under $700. for the item... (+install by electrician).
