Hard Wiring Generator Directly to Fuse Box of Solar Powered Cabin

16 years ago

We are in the process of purchasing a log cabin on 40 acres that is not connected to grid power, however, it is powered by a solar setup. The batteries that power the cabin are dead, as a result of not being used for years. I would prefer to not invest in new batteries if possible, as the cabin will be used once a year at most and is very remote.

I would like to hard wire a generator directly to the fuse box without hooking up a manual transfer switch.

Is this possible and if so how is it done?

There is also currently a converter hooked into the fuse box that I would like to keep in place.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Many thanks.
