    Default An other Generator

    I was inspecting a remote cabin with a generator It was using the outdoor generator with a factory-installed main. It is located 35' away and is the cabin's sole source of power. Do I need a main in the panel at the cabin or does the main at the generator satisfy the requirement?

    I would imagine that 446.18 & 702.11 are applicable here. The NEC indicates that no additional disconnect is required if located within sight, and is rated as service equipment. The gen set's disconnect should be sufficient.
