Having been without power for 68hrs last week I have decided to get a generator.
I have ordered this:Pacini 7.5kva Silent Diesel Generator, Electric Start with AVR, link: https://ige.ie/pacini-7-5kva-silent-...oaAmLsEALw_wcB
I rang my local electrician last night and he will install a manual change over switch for me.
On it I would like to keep running:
1) Chest freezer
2) Fridge with freezer
3) Waterpump for solid fuel stove
4) Well pump
5) 700W UPS that runs my internet connection into the house and the router - no load on this UPS at all only a modem and a router
6) A few light bulbs - all led
Should I be well covered with the 7.5Kva ?
When powering it on should I be switching off the freezer and well pump then on one at a time ?
Plan would be in an outage to let it run during the day and then power it off at night and on again in the morning.
What would be the max length of cable / type of cable I should use to allow me to keep the generator away from the house a bit for noise ?
Lastly : Would you put this into some type of hut / cover when running to keep rain off it (with access for exhaust to vent ?)
