Nothing good comes in a hasty installation work. Portable generators follow a recommended installation procedure. Disregarding the use of automatic transfer switches and connecting the generator set directly to the electrical service panel can cause damage to your equipment and to the generator unit itself. Worse, it can be dangerous when the generator set is not properly installed. This can cause deadly electrical current to backfeed into the power lines and can cause electrocution to anyone who is working with the utility system.

It also allows businesses to optimize the capacity of the generator without worrying about fault. Short circuits may occur when the generator is improperly connected to the service panel.
