Q: Can I use the 100 amp 16 circuit transfer switch with a 20 KW Generac?

by George Bristol from Nebraska on November 23, 2013

A: You cannot use the 16 circuit Generac transfer switch with the 20kW Generac home standby unit. The internal wiring is not suitable for the amperage output capacity of the 20kW unit.

The following switches are recommended for use with the 20kW Generac unit allowing specific circuits......

The Generac RTG16EZA1 transfer switch is a standard model allowing you to power up to 16 essential circuits as opposed to powering an entire home.

With the ability to power 16 specific circuits in your home, the Generac RTS16EZA1 allows you to go with a smaller generator so you can power the basics and still get some of the comforts you need in an emergency outage.

If you're looking to save a bit on installation and generator cost, the RTS16EZA1 is an excellent choice, as it's pre-wired... more

Pros: Price, Reliable, High Quality

Easy
We bought a whole-house transfer switch with our 16KV Generac.

After reviewing what was required per code to install it, we sold it and purchased the RTG16EZA1 16 Circuit Transfer switch.

Easy to install, and works perfectly. Shipping was fast and the purchase from EGD was painless.
Pros: Durable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

100 Amp Tranfer Switch
Pro:
Easy hookup
Prewired, no need to move wires out of main panel.

Cons:
This is 100 amp from your main panel but only 60 amp from your generator.
Breakers it comes with may not be what you need.
Comes with wire nut connectors but none for the bigger wires.

Overall a very nice unit and works well.
