Typhoon season is starting up again for us in Japan, and after purchasing a home in the sticks, I've found out the hard way that when heavy winds hit, we are the first to lose power (and the last to get it hooked up). We installed a 4000 watt grid tie solar system, and in the process got a package deal.. so everything in the house is electric now. Oven, water heater, etc.. Bought an LP shower heater and stove for emergencies, along with a 2300 watt generator. The genny sits in it's own concrete storage bunker just outside, and originally I ran extention cords everywhere. I prefer to connect directly to my breaker box.. a little no-no called backfeeding. I took the bus strips coming off the main breaker completely off.. isolating the house. Connected my 100vac to the load side of the first top breaker. Turning it on energizes the top bus strip (supply side), and I switch on the next two (Only need 3 breakers for the essentials). Any thoughts on this? I cannot find a transfer or interlock switch here. Can add pics if needed. Tks..
