Generator Safety

Some people prepare for the possibility of power outages by buying an electric generator as a standby system to keep lights and appliances running until service is restored.

A generator may be very beneficial during an extended outage. Generators can also pose serious safety hazards to you and to others. Be sure to follow all safety instructions provided by the manufacturer.

All generators must be installed with a double-pole, double-throw transfer switch to keep the generator from backfeeding into ANEC's system.

Should you install a generator, please let us know. We will record this information to remind our workers of your generator if they are working on an outage in your area.

ANEC offers permanent standby generators. Please call our Operations Department for more information.
