Generator Load Shed Program FAQs
What type of generator does the REMC provide?
SEI REMC is an
authorized Select Generac Dealer. We have certified technicians
available to quote, sell, install and service Generac back-up
generators. Unit comes with a 3 year parts/labor warranty.
How does a generator work?
The generators provided
by the REMC have an automatic transfer switch which is located next to
your electrical main. This switch monitors incoming voltage 24 hrs a
day, 365 days a year. When a break in your electrical service occurs,
the switch immediately signals the generator to power up. It safely
closes off the utility line and simultaneously opens up a new power line
from the generator.
How loud is the generator when it is running?
In a quiet test mode, during weekly
operation, the level is 65 DBA (measurement of sound pressure)
at 20 feet
Normal emergency operation is 78 DBA at 20
In comparison, a
typical riding lawn mower is 90 DBA at 20 feet
