Customer Question

Generac 20kw Guardian series generator. Electricity to house off for next 12 hours due to downed powerline. Would like to turn off generator to save fuel. Is turning off circuit breakers on generator panel adequate to shut down generator? Flip bac on when city power restored?

No, shutting off the breakers will only hsut power off to the house.

If you want to shut the genset down, you need to turn the switch at the genset to the "OFF" position.
