Siemens Generator Ready Load Center

The Siemens Generator Ready Load Center, while being a minimal expense over standard load centers, can save the homeowner thousands of dollars in future generator installation expense. The load center is provided with two interiors, both being powered by the utility power supply. Critical circuits are placed in the lower interior, which is backed up by a generator in the event of a power outage. Providing back up to critical circuits only greatly reduces the size and expense of the generator required.
