Contact MCVK Electric Today
An interlock kit allows you to safely operate your back-up or portable generator when the power goes off. Essentially, an interlock kit shuts off the main circuit breaker and only allows power to flow through the generator circuit breaker. Once power is restored to your home or commercial building, the interlock kit turns of the generator circuit breaker and turns the main circuit breaker back on.
