Generator Safety

For the safety of BBEC employees and the public we like to know where backup generators are installed on our system. We request that all members who have installed generators call BBEC at 866-844-2363.

Generators can cause serious safety problems if improperly installed and could cause injury to BBEC workers and the general public. All backup generator installations should have a transfer switch installed in accordance with the requirements of the National Electric Code. Transfer switch installations must be inspected by the State Electrical Inspector.

Always place generators outdoors in a dry area away from windows and doors to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
