Question DetailsAsked on 9/12/2013

How much should it cost to install an electrical generator?

I want to compare the price of retrofitting my existing 200 amp circuit breaker box so that I can run a portable generator in the event of a power outage vs. the cost of installing an exterior generator that will keep my whole house running in the event of loss of power.

You can find a number of responses on typical costs in the Home > Elecrtrical link right udner your question, but you would need actual bids to determine for sure which is best for your case - though of course the portable generator with a manual transfer switch will obviously be FAR cheaper than a whole-house emergency generator installation.
