Setting up a solar power system or installing a generator for your home will require making a change to the wiring. This means installing a power transfer switch may be necessary.
A generator can be set up to power the whole home or to charge the batteries when there are clouds that prevent sufficient energy collection from solar panels. However, switching from one power source to another will require installing a power transfer switch. This is a great option for people who want solar power, but are not in a position to go completely off the grid.
One important thing about installing a power transfer switch is a professional will be necessary. Adding this type of electrical device can be dangerous for people who are not familiar with electrical wiring or installation by a certified electrician may be required in your township or county. If you want to provide power to some of your appliances during an emergency, then this is a great option.
