Electrical power is needed for the interior lighting, air-conditioning, audio-music, video presentations and vocal narrative, and office equipment and telephones in the sales models and the sales office.
If there is a chance that final inspection and occupancy approval might not be given by the city building department in enough time for the electrical utility company to set the meters and turn on the electricity, the builder should plan to use a generator in the interim.
The builder should plan ahead for this temporary generator as an option, so there is no last-minute rush trying to obtain electrical power.
A location for the generator must be found that is out of sight behind a building, wind-screened fence, or trees to minimize noise and to not detract from the sales models and sales office campus.
The builder must also arrange for periodic refueling of the generator. The generator must also be large enough to handle the required electrical load.
