Only in Westport would you have to deal with five government agencies / departments in order to install something (on your private property) to improve your quality of life.

The Reas sure pd. over the top for a 14k gen. installed.

Just had 17k installed; total cost is some $4,500 less.

Gues it pays to to homework.

Oh, yeah, it did take a bunch of permits.

Mr. Bonomo exaggerates a bit. I got a transfer switch installed for $500 + $400 for a 5,600 watt generator (on sale, normally $700) = $900 to $1,200. The generator starts on the first pull. But some manual labor is involved.

Would love to get a rec from Mr. Katz - I can capitalize on his homework - although I am doing some of my own, and finding prices about 6,500. for 13 kw.

Mr. Pisarro, who the hell is Mr. Bonomo….am I missing something here?

In the article it states: “Portable, 5 kW generators, are considerably less, between $600 and $800 at stores such as Lowes and The Home Depot; however, they will wind up costing about $2,000 by the time a licensed electrician puts in a separate electrical panel, Bonomo said.”

How were the Reas able to place the generator so close to their home?  I’ve been told that zoning requires any permanent generator to be installed a minimum of 10 feet from any building.

...to block the view of the swing set!
I got a generator and transfer switch back in 2003 after that semi-National “cascade outage” during that hot August week.  (remember?).  Irony is, now that I have it, I’ve never lost power. Go figure?  Since it is a sizable portable one, I was able to help others.  (parents, family, friends).  If thinking of buying one, please keep in mind, the essentials are all you need.  And that is around $2500.  Camping out in your own home for a few days shouldn’t cost more than that.

Can the source and age/installation of the generator
shown be published?  It’s so close to a window
and the laws were very specific when our Generac
was installed last spring.  Tarala Electric installed the generator and Gault took care of the propane tank and hook up.  Both did a great job plus took care of all the paper work. Except of a once a week automatic ten minute test run the unit has not had to “strut its stuff” -  yet.

Happy New Year to all.
