Today james Adams, Master electrician in McKinney TX will discuss the two options of generators. The portable and the permanent

Permanent generators have a weatherproof covering and run relatively quiet. Most importantly, when there is a power outage like the one we recently had in Texas, a permantently installed generator turns on automatically.

Portable generators are noisy, produce less power and must be wheeled out and manually connected to a home circuit-breaker panel with a transfer switch or a heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cord before being used.
