...Then the state will come to screw so much with that guy, that everyone sits in fear of their own generator starting a fire...

No, the state will screw with the company that made the generator -- not enough money in an individual.

The ultimate result will be that no one will sell generators in CA any longer.

“ No, the state will screw with the company that made the generator — not enough money in an individual.”

I live in Illinois and installed a 10kw generator and a transfer switch a few years ago. The instruction manual had “Not Legal For Use In California” on page 3. The reason? The buyer needs to install a California approved spark arrester on the exhaust. Which, of course, was NOT included.

So when Joe Citizen fires up his 2kw Generac he bought at Lowe’s sometime in the last few years he’s an instant criminal.

So that’s nice.

BTW my in laws are sitting in El Dorado County in the dark for the second day as I write this. His 2kw Generac sitting on his back porch, no California Approved Spark Arrester installed. He’s got one 5 gallon gas can. No power at any of the local filling stations so he can’t get any more.

I told him to get a tri fuel kit so he could run it off the propane tank he has sitting in his backyard. But he didn’t.

No telling when they’ll turn the juice back on.
