Safe Generator Connection

Many Southwest Florida residents 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 crews working in the area.

GenerLink™ offered by LCEC eliminates the use of extension cords and other hazardous connections 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 backfeed.

Benefits of GenerLink™

  • Easiest and safest generator connection.
  • Allows customers to run virtually any appliances up to the capacity of their generator.
  • Easily installed behind the electric meter by a certified LCEC technician.
  • Connection at the meter keeps your portable generator outside where it is safe.
  • Seven year manufacturer’s warranty.
