I'm considering getting a large portable generator to help power our house during rolling brown outs and local electric public shutoffs from our power company.
I'm curious though. Can a solution like this, connected to a transfer switch or interlock device be used to distribute power across multiple circuits? Or should I only plan for the portable generator to power one circuit?
The specific generator I'm looking at has the following outlets:
- 120V 20A GFCI Outlet (4X)
- 120V 30A Twist Lock (1X)
- 120/240V 30A Twist Lock (1X)
- 120/240V 50A Heavy Duty Outlet (1X)
