Q: I am wondering how much the EZ switch is to put in the Generator ready basic load center? I could not find it on your web site.
Also would it be ok to get the gen ready panel with the transfer switch if you don't have a generator yet?

by Chris Dahl from Illinois on October 24, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry!

The Generac GenReady, 200-Amp Load Center, model 5448, will be able to supporting your application prior to the generator install. The device acts as a traditional circuit panel, but with the ability to function as a transfer panel as well.

The Generac GenReady EZ Transfer Operator Field Installation Kit can be added long after the GenReady Load Center is in place. You will be able to find the EZ Operator Field Kit by following the link provided below. We currently offer this product for $229.99.

Q: What is the compatibility issue about? Could you elaborate, please?
by Joseph McCabe from New Jersey on May 15, 2012

A: It stems mainly from the point that Generac switches are only compatible with Generac generators. Generac switches contain no line sensing logic, the auto start/stop functionality resides in the generator controller. The switch above, the GenReady panel variety, is simply a panelboard load center that allows for the installation of a transfer mechanism. Most people buy this switch as a emergency circuit (read as a sub-panel) to install at time of new construction. Later down the road when you wish to install a generator you can simply add the transfer accessory kit and wire to a Generac generator.

This panelboard is also available as the Advanced GenReady Load Center panel/switch which comes with the transfer mechanism for instant use with a Generac system.

If you have further questions about compatibility, please give us a call - we would be glad to walk you through it in more detail.
