IN NJ you need a specialized license for electrical --- We make it a point to let any of our contracts know that we do NOT perform any electrical work and send back any order requesting electrical with a bid for third party electrician- a few companies have undermined this by stating please test ...provide bid and state DO NOT PLACE BID FOR THIRD PARTY ELECTRICIAN. I send these back- we are not electricians- The way they want you to test it is not safe do not do it, you burn the house down, you will be liable, you damage the house, you will be liable- your insurance, unless you are an electrician, will not cover the damages, and most importantly, if you injure yourself they won't give a s--- So place a bid for a licensed electrician- that would be the safest thing to do

You can not back feed in any way, sort, or fashion, from a generator to a panel or through any 220v receptacle. Per national electric code. You can only use a generator on a structure if it is hardwired and has an automatic throw switch to secure power from being back charged into utility lines. It also can not be run on gasoline, only propane or natural gas. It has to be installed by a certified electrician with power company on site during installation. I was a fire Marshall for many years. If you are caught back feeding by the power company or any law enforcement of any kind. It is a $10,000 fine and up to one year in jail. Its highly illegal. Even with the meter removed. DONT DO IT! I personally know one individual in Texas who was caught doing this. He was fined and had to go to court. He was given a warning nut still had to pay a fine. The company he worked for (national known company), paid the fine, but fired him when they were the ones requiring him to do so. Just don't do it!! Walk away and tell them no. Its for your own good.
