Powering your home's electrical panel (2000W inverter)


i used an interlock kit so i could power my entire panel (all 120V circuits, not at the same time obviously), just for convenience sake. an interlock prevents you from operating the generator with the main circuit on, thus preventing back feeding your panel by accident. Back feeding is when your generator sends electricity back to the outside lines b/c someone forgot to turn the main circuit breaker off. this mistake could (and has) injure or kill a line worker who is out there making repairs. direct feeding a panel without interlock or transfer switch sub panel is illegal due t potential for back feeding. here are some steps regarding interlock. as always, check your local codes for adherence to regulation.

Step 1: Find an interlock kit that's compatible with your panel. Chances are the model in HD/Lowe's will not fit your. Here is where I bought mine: http://www.interlockkit.com/

Step 2: Buy a double pole breaker that's compatible with your electrical box. Home Depot or your local electric supply house will have this.

Step 3: Buy generator inlet: http://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Controls-PB30-Generator-Generators/dp/B000BQT47S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&q... [amazon.com]

Step 4: Buy L14-30 to L5-30 adapter cable where both hots are crossed so you can power BOTH sides of your panel even though you have a 120V generator: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...ge_o02_s00 . You could make your own cable for $10, but it's nice to have a factory molded rugged cable that you don't have to worry about. One end of this cable will go into the L14-30 inlet in #3 and the other end gives you a L5-30 connection. See step 5.

Step 5: Buy a 25ft or 50ft L5-30 extension cord (length is up to you). This cord is what will go from your adapter in your inlet in Step 3 to your generator. I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-20571-Generator-Extension-Eextension/dp/B003HUYK5Q/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8... [amazon.com] . The reason why I am suggesting that you buy the L5-30 cord instead of a regular 5-15 cord + L5-30 to 5-15 adapter, is to future proof your setup should you ever decide to buy a 2nd Inverter generator and use the parallel kit (which has a L5-30 plug for 3000W output power), it's up to you really and what you think you generator power needs might be in the future. if you only plan on using single 120V inverter gens like this (1 of them), save the money and use a 5-15 cord and a L5-30 to 5-15 adapter

Step 6: Buy L5-30 to 5-15 adapter plug which goes into the generator if you want to run directly from a single generator and not the parallel kit (you should have the option of doing both, as a fall back, so you aren't forcing yourself to run both): http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-Locking-Adapter-Female-Connector/dp/B002YB108Y/ref=sr_1_5?tag=slickdea... [amazon.com]

Step 7: Either do it yourself per the Youtube videos or pay an electrician. You can buy the rest of the materials at Home Depot (romex, wall anchors, conduit, etc). Since you are providing all materials or most of them, the electrician should only be charging you a labor rate. This job should not take longer than 2 hours. If you are running across long distances or through thick masonry...ok add an hour. You should not have to pay more than 2-3 labor hrs for this job. If you want to save money, you can do all of the labor intensive work of mounting the inlet, running the conduit, and running the romex...then all he has to do is install the interlock panel, the double pole breaker for the generator, and make the final connection to your box. Figure he'll charge you (1) labor hour to do all of that. if you have never done anything electrical before, just hire the electrician for peace of mind.






NOTE 1: You will not be able to power any 240V appliances with this generator.Turn OFF all 240V circuits (except the double pole circuit you are using with your generator inlet and interlock). This is to prevent the possibility of overloading the neutral

NOTE 2: i attached photos. don't pay attention to the fact there are (2) inlets. it's b/c where i installed these, it's a multi residence with 2 service panels

NOTE 3: since i had the panels open, i threw on whole house surge protectors. bought them from a slickdeal back in 2012 i think

NOTE 4: you can fit (2) of these on a harbor freight large dolly, using scrap deck boards across.

NOTE 5: it's good practice to install run meters on these. installation simple the meter itself is only $5-6 on ebay or amazon. the run meter wire is what you see on the last pic of the 2 red generators, coming out from the front vent

61db at 50% load whereas the Wen is 51db at 25% load. So Wen at 50% load would maybe be the same db?

5% cashback this quarter for Chase Freedom card using PayPal. Very tempting.

And another $21 off if you received the 8% off Ebay / eBucks offer. Very slick. Way better than the Home Depot Champion 2000 watt Inv. generator deal that I got in on from a couple months back. As mentioned above another 5% Chase Freedom CC through PayPal.

Nice! I had the 8% eBay bucks offer and also stacked the Chase Freedom (remember to activate the category first), comes down to ~$250. Pretty slick, esp with the 3 yr warranty. Also seems to have decent reviews on Amazon.

Probably the same db, or very close. More draw, higher rpm = louder.. Also, Wen is only 2 year warranty.

I was wondering the same thing. I bought a champion on the $299 deal.

I researched this with my other Inverter Generator and was told yes. I'd call Duromax to confirm.

I'm in for one. I've been thinking about a generator for awhile and now esp. since PG&E is going to have planned power outages in the SF bay area because of wildfire threats. Doubt this will be an issue in the city (although we had a power outage a few weeks ago for another reason) but never hurts to have some backup power capability. This is inexpensive enough that I don't have to feel bad even if it almost never gets used.

Are the patch cord connections universal? That's the question. I would be 100% zero surprised if manufacturers were not using proprietary connections.

So, it seems that the issue with trying to parallel is the connection plugs. I found a better pic of this unit on amazon and it looks like round connectors. I think some inverters have a square connector. The champion one from the $299 deal has square. Some older champion models have round connectors.

Connecting these Inverters can be done in different ways. Some may have round pos and neg connectors. You can also use120 volt 3 prong plug connector with a "y" type of setup. Their are youtube vids how to make these and they can also be bought.

I liven in Newcastle/Auburn. Power was out for 3 1/2 days. PGE needs to be spanked!
