Standby Generator Update

This morning, Rich and Udo moved the new standby generator over to roughly where it will be installed. That probably took some doing since it weighs over 1100 lbs. I often use an old skateboard to move heavy stuff around at home, including VW engines back in my dune buggy days. Something tells me that wouldn't have worked here. :)

We shut down the power to the building at noon and they did some prep work on the wiring, to get ready for installing the ATS (automatic transfer switch) and the new genset. It was a good opportunity to verfiy that our two UPS units were working ok to keep us on the air. I'm happy to report that the UPSes did fine.

Pictures of the whole standby generator project are here. You can click on the thumbnails to see bigger pictures and click on the bigger pictures to see even bigger pictures. (800x600)
