McQuagge Electric Company has electricians and we have Generator Technicians. There is a big difference in the two.
Installing a Whole house or selected circuits Generator system can be at any time of construction. The best time is during the planning stage before construction. In most cases it is installed after the home has been built. Generators are installed based on Chapter 3 or 4 of the NEC. Generators should not be sized on average use and all loads shall be included if the generator is to cover them.
A Generator start up is a very important step. Our generator techs verify many variables. This is to make sure the installs are complete and functional.
Sizing a Generator
When sizing a Generator there are many steps and it will require several different licensed trades. For all applications the electrical loads are required and must be calculated for proper unit size. This can only be done by a licensed electrical contractor, engineer or the owner of the property who wishes to size it themselves. It is an electrical design. This is to meet electrical code requirements and warranty from the manufacturer. Our electrical team calculates this part, and sometimes an outside electrical engineering firm. When the require size is complete then options for load management and smaller units can be determined and other items such as location is determined. If another electrical company is doing the electrical side of the generator install, they are responsible for giving us the calculated size required.
Commercial projects may require multiple items to be included for the install of a generator. Items such as life safety, emergency lighting, security, and lift stations. McQuagge Electric Company will require professionally designed electrical drawing for all commercial projects. If McQuagge Electric provides the drawings for the project there is a fee.
