Inverter to main panel on breaker
Connecting my Magnum 4024 PAE Inverter to our main panel. I currently have a 7000 W genny connected to the main panel's source and would like to leave it available as a back up.
I've heard that I could connect the Inverter to a 30amp breaker and the panel would recognize it as a source.
This would give me a breaker I could use to disconnect the inverter/batteries as the source for the house and then use the 7000w unit as it is. My thoughts are this would allow me to have a back up option if/when I need to shut off the inverter/batteries for service and still have full power to the house.
I know I'd have to be careful not to have both sources hot at the same time, but that's a no brainer as the current one is only operable when the genny is running and it is connected to the 120 port.
Is this doable
