Backup Generator FAQs
We Play By the Rules.
Every parish and county has different rules and requirements that govern the size and placement of standby generators. In addition, there are state and federal regulations that must be adhered to. Finally, generator manufacturers specify installation requirements in order to honor their product warranties.
All of these rules can get a little confusing, so we’ve put together an FAQ and included links to parish websites and major generator manufacturers for more.
Do I need permits and inspections?
Yes. All parishes and towns require a variety of permits to be filed by licensed contractors. Approved officials must inspect after the installation is complete. Permits and inspections are essential to having a safe generator install. Please confirm that all contractors are licensed for the type of work they are performing and in the parish or municipality where they’re working.
