Many Baldwin EMC members use portable electric generators to power their homes during electrical outages. While generators are a convenience, if used improperly, they can cause hazardous conditions for the homeowner and for electric utility crews working in the area.
GenerLink™ eliminates those hazardous conditions by providing a safe connection from the electric meter directly to the generator. GenerLink™ also detects when a generator is operating and automatically disconnects from the utility grid, eliminating dangerous backfeeding.
GenerLink™ devices are available through Baldwin EMC. Give us a call at (251) 989-6247 or toll free at (800) 837-3374 to place your order. We’ll send a technician out to your home to do the installation.
The cost of the GenerLink™ is $725.00 plus tax for the 30 amp and $825.00 plus tax for the 40 amp. Please understand that we cannot install your GenerLink™ until we have received payment.
While most homes will be able to make use of GenerLink™, they are only available for services 200 amps or lower. If you are currently using Baldwin EMC surge protection equipment, the GenerLink™, which comes equipped with HomeGuard surge protection, will take the place of the surge device. GenerLink™ comes with a detailed instruction manual that will explain the features of the device, and how to operate it safely.
