Stand-By Fixed Electrical Generator

Building Permit

A Building Permit is needed for the installation of a stand-by fixed electrical generator. The property owner or authorized agent (contractor) will need to make application prior to installation.

  • If you have questions with the building permit process contact the Department of Code Compliance
  • You may request a copy of a site plan of your property by contacting the Planning and Zoning Department. Be sure to include your address in your request.
  • If a portable generator is more practical for your needs, but you still intend to install a transfer switch or an exterior outlet for a plug connection for a portable generator, an Electrical Permit (PDF) would be required.
