A Completed Generator Interlock Kit Installation on an Existing GE Circuit Breaker Panel

A photo of the inside of the main electrical panel before any changes were made.
Because most of the original circuits were not labeled, a circuit tracer was used to identify many of them.

The completed GE sub-panel with all circuits labeled as required by the National Electrical Code. The yellow tape on the circuit breaker is there to help the homeowner choose circuits to run off of the portable generator.
Here is the new sub-panel installed using 3/4" EMT conduit. A 3/4" EMT bender was used to bend the conduit to fit into place. Pre-bent conduit elbows and offset fittings are available for some sizes of electrical conduit. Note the 4 11/16" square junction boxes mounted on the ceiling. By mounting the junction boxes there, it made it very easy to remove cables out of the existing GE main circuit breaker panel and bring those circuits into the new GE sub-panel.
