Talking Proposed new Sticky FAQ: Comments requsted from Resident SmartGuys

To all our Resident SmartGuys:

It has been proposed that we add a Sticky FAQ to the Main Motor & Generator Forum that deals with "Connection of Home Backup Generators to Homes and Home based Operations".

We believe that this should cover at a minimum
1. How NOT to do this, and why....
2. A few examples of How to Do this, and why....
3. A simple, and understandable primer on Neutral/Ground Bonding
4. A simple Statement, that one should consult with their local Inspection
Authority, BEFORE deciding on any one method or implementation.

I think that if we can get something understandable and informative, it would be a Very Good Thing to have. So, if we can all do some thinking about this, and come to a reasonable consensus I will get the results, Posted.

As appropriate Comments or Discussions are made in the above thread I will Bring them over to this Sticky FAQ
