Having a generator on hand in case of an extended power outage is a convenient way to maintain access to electricity, but they also pose serious safety risks if not used properly.



Be Safe: Let CTEC Know About Your Generator

Why We Need to Know

If hooked up incorrectly, generators can cause dangerous backfeed onto power lines. Not only can this be dangerous for you and your neighbors, but it also poses a threat to our linemen working to restore outages.

For this reason, it’s important for CTEC to be made aware of locations that may use generators in the event of a power outage. If you have a back-up generator, please be sure to contact us to let us know!

Have a question?

We can have someone contact you to help answer your questions.
