Do I have to worry about "back feed" if the Home Standby Generator is running when the power comes back on?
No. All of our transfer switches are designed to keep generator back feed from occurring. When the contractor installs the transfer switch, it will be connected directly to the utility power. A control board will be able to sense when the utility power has returned to transfer back to utility (it is programmed so the generator powers up the house for a minimum of five minutes). Everything is programmed so that one source of power is broken before another source of power is made.
