Power outages are inevitable. When that happens, it’s a toss up on how long it will be back on. One way to make sure you have power is buying a portable power generator. Some things that people may not know about these generators are they they do have a manual transfer switch. That makes it safe for people to easily transfer power to the circuits. Always use an outside extension cable if you are to use one, they are different voltages and amps. The power generator also may have it’s own dedicated cable for power.
