Proper, Safe Use of Generators
The residential use of generators to supply power during outages is on the increase. The linked Generator Brochure was created to help you operate your generator safely during emergencies. Improper installation and operation can lead to electrocution, carbon monoxide poisoning and even death to members of your household and utility workers. Please take time to review the brochure before making your generator purchase. Huntsville Utilities recommends that you contact a licensed electrician to determine the generator size and proper installation to meet your desired usage level in a safe, efficient manner.
