        Residential Reliability Market
                Exists Today
•   Distributed Reliability
•   10 to 15 million portable generators already exist
•   Cost of Generators have come down
•   Typical yearly sales are approximately 2 million units
•   Three companies have 85% market share
     – Coleman
     – Honda
     – Generac

                        Basics of GenerLink
   • GenerLink is a “state” switch
   • Generator has priority
         – Allows customer to test system
         – Operator becomes part of the process
   • Special Electromechanical logic scheme
     insures “break-before-make”
   • 160 amperes continuous current flow
