Generlink Safety Device

GenerLink is a five-inch collar which can be used with a portable generator to transfer electricity during power outages. When you connect a portable generator to the GenerLink and start it up, the GenerLink automatically disconnects your house from the electric utility grid.

With the use of a GenerLink, you can have the peace of mind that your portable generator will not back-feed electricity into Guernsey-Muskingum Electric's distribution power lines. A back-feed situation is dangerous for linemen working on and neighbors who may come in contact with low or downed wires you energize. You are liable for a back-feed situation that is created by your improperly installed generator.

A GenerLink is also a convenient way to avoid running extension cords to plug into your portable generator. With a "proper" electrical transfer switch, one can safely meet the National Electric Code. There are other "proper" transfer switches on the market.

Contact the Member Services department at your cooperative for information, pricing of the GenerLink, or other safe options for using generators during power outages.
