The Siemens generator ready load center can save thousands of dollars in future generator installation expenses while keeping initial expenses to a minimum. allowing for a combination of a load center, transfer switch, and critical circuit sub panel into one neat enclosure. This version (model G3042B1200GEN) has a maximum amperage rating of 200 amps, and it also comes in a 225 amp version.

The load center has two interiors, both powered by utility power under normal operating conditions. When utility power is lost, a transfer mechanism switches so that only one interior, which contains the critical circuits, is backed up by a generator. This allows for the use of a smaller, more cost effective generator and to prevent that generator from being overloaded.

The lower standby protected section has 18 one-inch spaces for 30 circuits, while the upper utility-only section has 10 one-inch spaces for 10 circuits. An additional two spaces and two circuits are reserved for generator installation. It features a NEMA 1 enclosure for indoor use, and it's designed to accept the Siemens Automatic Transfer Switch (GENTFRSWTCH).
