We have been losing power more often so I asked my electrician about installing a permanent generator. He quoted me $23,000 installed for a Koehler 20,000 watt generator to run the whole house. That seemed to me to be way on the high side.
The generator location would be about 20ft from our home, and thus 20 ft from our nat gas line. Electrical would run through the house basement to the panel in the garage on the other side of the home. In doing a little research, I can find generators this size for $10,000 or less, so $13,000 to install seemed to be out of line.
I am going to get another quote or 2, anyone have an idea about if I am out of line?
