Comment When the grid pukes (Score 1) 695

in 25 years with a standby generator learned a few things. run the gen every month for an hour change the oil twice a year (regardless of use) change the gas (drain and refill) every 6 months A small metal garden shed with ventilation (box fan & turbine) keeps the weather out, and insulation will cut down on the noise. Changeover can be low tech with a breaker in the same location as the main shutoff will work ok (you will only experiance a mistake here only once with either a line man kicking the crap out of you or the sight of a full 5 gallon plastic gas tank melting)
