So sorry to hear that Chuck. If I lived closer, I'd invite you over. Hell, you're welcome if you want to make the trek up her.

5000.+ This is installed. You need an electrician and plumber. They have to put in a big transfer switch. It is worth it.

It runs on natural gas . It runs my whole house. Once a week it runs iteslf for 10 min to be sure it is always ready.

I thought about getting one that runs on gasoline as they were a bit cheaper but then you have to store gas and what if you run out and can't get out or the gas station is closed due to no power ? Plus you have to pour gas in once a month and run to check.

I am too old and live alone so I think the stand by was better for me.

More and more folks are installing these generators where I live because PSHN sucks and everyone is weary of loosing power in the Winter and freezing and having pipes burst.

Good Luck to everyone. It is getting cold and I hope power is restored to all soon. Be careful with some generators...Be sure they are outside.

I don't know how the snow removal is in Mass, but it's pretty good up here. I know the difficulty of digging out of two feet in less than 24 hours. We had a storm, the Valentines day storm to be exact, where 25 inches fell in less than 24 hours and the temperature was below 0 the whole time. That shut everything down for a whole day. I'm disappointed the game is cancelled, but I'm glad fan safety was important here, maybe. Considering how people drive in Mass...

I'm here at Merrimack College so I've been just fine, mate. Stocked up on the drinks before the storm came yesterday. Been having a lot of fun too say the least. Some things I would love too share, but I'd be willing to bet my academic scholarship that it's not allowed here. Been wild here the past couple days.

Cheers guys! All the best of luck!

Thanks for the info..
I don't have natural gas available in my development. I agree about downsides of gasoline. I wonder if they have something that runs on propane? And then how big a tank is needed for say aw week of service?
I may look into something like that. As long as we had heat and the kitchen circuits available I'd be good.

same here no natural gas so I would need something else. I am going to have it done professionaly for sure though not just a generator in the back yard type set up where I run wires myself.

Welp it's official, I am a fan of the worst run sports organization on the planet.

How on earth this decision could have possibly not have been made before 11am is unfathomable ... really there is absolutely no excuse for such blatant stupidity and mismanagement at such a high level.

I could care less that it is cancelled, in fact it is the right call...


...but the timetable, holy crap is that pathetic.

One nice thing about living in small town NH is they have more places to put 2 or more feet of snow. Took us about 3 or 4 hours to shovel and snow blow (we had to shovel so my husband could go get our snowblower from a friend who had borrowed it).

I think one issue for Boston is there aren't a lot of places to move the snow.

Still have power here, although the wind has been strong most of the day. It was kind of freaky while we were shoveling to hear the trees cracking in the wind.

there's LP systems for what you want to do

to do that right, you'd want to have a circuit for each appliance (you have separate appliance circuits, right) plus the two 20A circuits for your GFCIs plus one for your heat; the good news is that's a pretty reasonable load that you can throw on a <3K genset, and assuming your electrical wasn't done by a lunatic you should be able to have a permanently installed and good to go set for less than 5K

Oh and I have to agree that the time table was bad.

NHL really should have been planning on cancelling, done so earlier, and already been working on the back up plan for rescheduling (which in the end is probably why they wanted the game to go on and were resistant to cancelling).

Sounds like cancelling was the right move, but it should have happened sooner. I hope both teams make it to their next game cities safely.

I really have to do this.
I used a company called Generator Pro out of Nashua NH. They set up everything including the pad the Generac sits on, the electriction and plumber. They will also service the generator . It needs a yearly oil change and check.

The guy who set all of this up this was Doug Larter . He was recommended by a neighbor who had a generac installed. They were very good about coming Sat since I work during the week.

He does work on Mass too. I was very pleased with the work done.

I have called Doug a couple times with questions since I an NOT at all savvy on generators and he has been very good about calling me right back.

The phone # is 603-879-0839
