    35. Emergency Power Generation

    35.1  Any Customer with a source of emergency power generation must install a PUD- approved double-throw transfer switch. This switch must be so arranged that a single handle on the switch will disconnect the PUD's lines completely prior to the emergency generator being connected to any part of the Customer's wiring system. The transfer switch must be installed according to the NEC and will be subject to inspection and sealing by the PUD. 

    35.2  It is the responsibility of the Customer to disconnect its Electric Service from PUD lines prior to activating any emergency generators. Damage to PUD equipment or facilities caused by the Customer’s equipment will be the responsibility of the Customer and billed to the Customer.
