Note how the number 10 bare copper ground wire is shaped in the rear of the generator inlet box and then wrapped around the green ground screw using the included clamp.

This is the location that the homeowner chose to have his portable generator sit and operate during a power outage. The open door is the entrance to the garage

The upper red arrow points to the generator ground connection. The lower red arrow indicates the white neutral wire connection. This is the main panel so the ground and neutral are connected on the same terminal bar. In a sub-panel the ground and neutral would be kept separate.
The hole in the wood siding was made using two spade drill bits. First a 7/8" bit was used to drill an 1/8" deep hole to allow for the button connector. A 1/2" drill bit was used to drill all the way through into the basement.
