GenerLink puts an end to the hassles and headaches of connecting an emergency generator to your home’s wiring system. GenerLink makes connecting a generator as easy as plugging in a cord.
GenerLink is a collar that is inserted between your home’s electric meter and socket by a PUD service technician. Once installed, you simply plug your generator into the GenerLink. Now your home’s electrical system is powered by your generator.
GenerLink automatically disconnects your home from the power grid when the generator is engaged. This allows you to operate home appliances without the hassle of extension cords, and prevents electricity from backfeeding onto power lines - electricity that could seriously injure or kill PUD repair crews working to restore power in the area. Backfeeding can also ruin your generator.
New GenerLink installations are charged $11 a month. The charge will be added to your monthly PUD statement. There is no installation fee. A minimum commitment of 12 months is required unless you cancel your electric service at the address where the GenerLink is installed.
There are some specific generator and electric service requirements that must be met in order to install a GenerLink at your home:
