Backfeeding an Electrical Panel with a Generator
Question: Can I back feed my Electrical panel with a generator?
Answer: Yes, there are two ways, either with a transfer switch or with an interlock system.
We recommend a transfer switch installation by a licensed electrician.
The biggest safety concern in backfeeding a breaker panel is sending electrical current the wrong way back to the pole possibly electrocuting a lineman or someone in the house.
The transfer switch isolates your main circuits needed in an outage such as fridge stove, furnace, possibly a well etc. and is matched by a generator large enough to handle it. There is no chance of making a mistake as to what needs turning off and on etc. The transfer switch is fully contained in its own metal box much like a sub panel. This is the safest method.
The interlock system are simple metal plates that are attached to your panel that will restrict the main breaker and generator switch from being moved at the wrong time. It prevents the wrong switch selection happening which is the main safety concern.
