Steuben Rural Electric Cooperative now offers GenerLinkTM.  GenerLinkTM is a new five-inch meter device that makes connecting a portable generator safe and easy.  The GenerLinkTM transfer switch will allow members to connect a 10,000 watt or less portable generator to their home during power outages. 

  • GenerLinkTM eliminates the use of extension cords and other connections that can be hazardous to members and SREC personnel.
  • GenerLinkTM  detects when a generator is operating and automatically disconnects from the utility grid, eliminating dangerous backfeed.
  • GenerLinkTM  is equipped with GenerLockTM, a unique interlocking power cord system that provides a quick and easy connection of a portable generator.
  • GenerLinkTM  is installed by SREC personnel and does not require the member to be home.
  • GenerLinkTM  is easily installed behind a member’s electric meter (200-amp meter base) and requires no rewiring of the member’s electrical system.
  • With GenerLinkTM, members have the flexibility to run virtually any appliance, up to the capacity of their generator by simply energizing appliances from their breaker panel.
  • There are two types of GenerLink™ available to SREC members to purchase.  Both models come with 75kA per phase surge protection to protect all your white appliances from a surge.  The surge module has an audible alarm to notify you when you take a hit.  The transfer switch comes with a 20 ft. cord.  The installation by SREC is free.
    • MA23-S GenerLink™ transfer switch works with portable generators that have a running wattage between 4,500-8,500 watts - $653.00 plus tax.
    • MA24-S GenerLink™ transfer switch works with portable generators that have a running wattage between 9,000-10,000 watts - $753.00 plus tax.

Please note that not all generators are compatible with these devices.  A list of compatible generators can be found at
