Default Generlink transfer switch

Anybody out there using a generlink transfer switch and how do you like it. Trying to lobby PG&E to allow their use in Kalifornia, so far have not gotten a good answer on why they are not allowed but if they are going to shut the power off every time the wind blows they should try to be a little more accommodating. Thanks for any input.

They're quite a slick device. Easy install, automatic etc.
Can't use them here in cheeseland either. The reason is that so the state says, is that they stick out too far which will allow someone to easily break them off exposing the live guts.

I think its a great idea. They use them in Florida. In Florida you purchase them from the power company. They come out an install them. When we move down full time I'm going to get one so I can backup my backup generator. When I talked to the power company they said to be sure the generator your using has a Floating neutral, if it doesn't it won't transfer. Last time I looked at them they offered 2 sizes. A 30 amp and A 50 AMP.
