How much does it cost to install a backup generator?
The installation of a backup generator can provide the total energy you need to supply the house during a loss of power, or it can be dimensioned to supply only necessary systems until Mains is restored. The Evolve panel is available in 3 sizes: 4kVA – 6kVA – 9 kVA. 3-4kVA Generator. Use this generator if you need to run the basic household systems or the submersible pumps only. You can use Gasoline Generator with manual start. Average price: 1000€-1500 €; 200€ up to 400€ in installation costs 4-6kVA Generator. You will be able to supply the house more effectively than a 3-4kVA system, but still will not deliver the power needed for the entire home. For this size we recommend ‘electric start’ Diesel engine. Gas & Gasoline are recommended only if you program in a proper way the scheduler. Average price: 2000€-3000 €; 200€ up to 400€ in installation costs
6-10KVA Generators. You will be able to supply the whole house. For this size we recommend Diesel generator. Average price: 3000€-5000 €; 200€ up to 400€ in installation costs.
How to connect a portable generator to a house
We do not recommend that you connect the generator directly to your house electric system. It could be dangerous and you can destroy your household appliances.
You can connect a portable generator, able to deliver at least 3KW (equivalent of 4KVA), to EVOLVE panel (4KVA Version). Evolve 9 will manage the Circuit Breakers in a safe way protecting your appliances in case of troubles of the generator.
This is the general guide
1) Ask to an electrician to connect a cable with a male plug. Set up the EVOLVE according to the generator size.
2) The generator must be provided with a proper female plug according to the safety standards.
3) The body of the generator must be grounded via a proper connection.
4) Set the EVOLVE in Manual Mode of operation.
5) In case of Mains Failure or in case you want to use the generator, connect the generator cable to the portable generator.
6) Start the generator. Use the Manual control of the circuit breakers on the EVOLVE front panel.
7) Open the MAINS circuit breaker, and to close the GENERATOR circuit breaker.
8) Once the MAINS restores, close the MAINS circuit breaker. Let the engine running for a few minutes to cool down. Stop the generator and disconnect the plug.
[A] WITHOUT GENERATOR. You supply your house  via the Electric Utility Company circuit breaker  . A distribution board  will allow you to connect your households via a suited number of circuit breakers.
[B] WITH A GENERATOR. You supply your house  via the EVOLVE panel . In normal condition the Electric Utility Company provides the electricity you need via the circuit breaker  . In case of power outage, the EVOLVE panel  will instruct the home generator  to run. Once the electrical parameters will be within the programmed settings, your house will be supplied by the generator. When Mains will restore, the EVOLVE will take care to supply your house via the Electric Utility Company. After an adjustable delay, the EVOLVE will stop the engine of your home generator.
