Meter Socket Transfer Switch

Combination Meter Socket-transfer Switch for Generators

You can clearly benefit from the safety and convenience of a new combination meter socket-transfer switch for your backup electric generator.  This equipment incorporates a meter socket and a transfer switch into one unit.  The transfer switch provides customers with the ability to safely transfer load from the utility to the generator and prevent dangerous backfeed into the utility system.

The combination meter sockets are available for 120/240 volt, 3 wire, single phase applications.  The transfer switchs are available in a breaker style, which comes with a main breaker and an auxiliary breaker of various amperage ratings.  They also are available in a double throw style switch.

Customers may purchase these units from the electric distributor of their choice.  Below is a list of such units that have been approved by Consumers Energy for use on its system.  Consumers Energy has the right to refuse service to meter sockets with equipment that hasn't been approved by the utility.

Additional information regarding the installation and sale of generators and associated equipment can be obtained by calling our Business Center toll-free at (800) 805-0490 or email us.
