Dear Mr. Electrician: How can I install a Generator Interlock Kit on my existing GE main circuit breaker panel so that I can connect a portable generator to it safely?
Answer: You first must determine if you have the needed spaces for a generator circuit breaker. Then you need to order the correct interlock kit that is approved for your circuit breaker panel. The photos below depict an interlock kit installation onto a GE main circuit breaker panel that was originally installed in the 1980’s.
