Important information on the safe
& proper operation of generators

T
      he power outages caused by hurricanes in recent years have created a lot of
      interest in generators. If you are shopping for a generator or have already
      purchased one, please keep the following information in mind.


Safety First
   It is extremely important to follow all the instructions provided by the manufacturer
of the generator. An improperly connected generator can create an extremely danger-
ous situation because it can backfeed electricity into Clay Electric’s distribution system.
This situation could result in serious injury or death to an unsuspecting co-op lineman, a
neighbor or family member. And, never operate a generator inside an enclosed area. Carbon monoxide
gases produced by a gasoline or propane engine can also cause death. Generators should be operated in
well ventilated areas, a minimum of 10 feet from operable windows and doors.
 A Word of Caution: Residential portable generators are not designed to be operated continuously. They
usually have 3,000 to 4,000 hours life expectancy. We recommend running the generator during emergency
situations for a few hours then shutting it off for a short period of time. This helps conserve on gas/propane
since they may not be readily available for the first few days after a major storm. Never leave the generator
running when the home is unoccupied.

About Generators
   There are two basic types of generators – (1) Portable and (2) Standby.
   Portable generators are designed to supply auxiliary power to specific appliances/equipment using exten-
sion cords. Most portable generators are mobile, gasoline fueled and electric or manually started. They may
cost from $500 to $2,000 or more. The rated wattage of portable generators is from 1,500 to 15,000 watts.
 Stand-by generators are designed to be hard-wired to the home’s electrical system. They automatically
operate when there is a power interruption and they shut off when the utility power is restored. They are
powered by LP, natural gas, diesel fuel or gasoline and they should be installed by a licensed electrician. The
installed cost of standby generators may range from $3,000 to $10,000. The wattage ranges from about 5,000
to 20,000 watts for residential use.
 For both types of generators, the size (watts) of the generator determines the number of appliances/equip-
ment you can safely operate at one time. Any appliance/equipment with a motor or compressor will draw
more current during start-up than during normal run time. The start-up of these motor/compressor loads
must be considered when sizing a generator for your needs. The extension cords used with a portable gen-
erator also should be properly sized to handle the electrical requirements of the appliance. See the appliance
usage chart on the next page to help you determine the total amount of watts you may need.
 Standby generators use a transfer switch designed to connect certain electrical circuits within a home to
the generator. You must determine which electrical circuits you want to be supplied with auxiliary power. A
licensed electrician should install the transfer switch. The standard transfer switch costs between $300 and
$500 and has the capability of connecting 6 to 12 circuits to the generator.
   A new type of switch now available for portable generators is the “meter based” transfer switch. It costs
between $600 and $800. The meter based transfer switch allows operation of any circuits in the home up to
the capacity of the switch and generator.

How Much Will it Cost to Operate?
 
   A 7,500 watts generator will consume an average of 1.2 gallons of propane per hour. This generator, con-
nected to a 100-pound propane cylinder, will provide approximately 24 hours of emergency power at full
load. The average cost of refilling a 100-pound cylinder is around $86. A 7,500 watts gasoline generator will
consume an average of 1-2 gallons of gas per hour.

If your home’s electrical service is damaged:
   Who’s responsible for what?
W       hen the storm subsides and you venture out-
        side to see what has been damaged, please be
very careful of debris and the likelihood that power
lines may be lying on the ground.
   If you see damage to the electrical equipment that
brings power into your home (the weatherhead, the
metal conduit that shields the electrical wires, and
the meter can), please contact a licensed electrician
to have the damage repaired. Please see illustrations
for clarification. Clay Electric is not responsible for
repairing this equipment if it has been damaged by a
storm or hurricane. Restoring power to an electrical
service that has been damaged could result in a fire
or threat to personal safety.
   Once an electrician has completed the repairs, and
the work has been inspected and deemed to meet
local codes, power can be restored to the home.
   If the electric meter is damaged, Clay Electric will
repair or replace it.
   Members are also urged to be wary if the home
has been damaged in a way which has allowed rain-
water to seep into walls and around electrical wir-
ing. A licensed electrician should make an inspection
to determine if damage has occurred to the home’s
electrical circuits, or if electrical hazards exist.




 Document your home and possessions
   T   he American Association of Retired Per-
       sons (AARP) suggests that you take photos
