Jim, I have 200 amp service into my home; what transfer switch is best for me if i buy the 48kw premium grade Generac standby generator? I am a residential customer and need the generator delivered to street level. My electrician can move it into place afterward. What is my option since I have no help on my end to deliver the unit?

Answer
You will want to match the amperage of your panel to the transfer switch and in your case you would want to use a 200A - Model RTSD200A3 Generac Nexus Smart Switch.

Due to the weight and size of these units a forklift or some other means to remove the unit from a semi-truck would have to be available at time of delivery. A lift gate cannot handle the size of these units and is not available. Unfortunately there is no way around this situation and you would have to consider renting a forklift or having your installer work out the details for you.
