Generators are routinely used in both detached and manufactured homes to provide backup power. In some off-the-grid living environments, generators can also be used in conjunction with a solar or alternative power system, or even to provide the bulk of the energy for the home.
Unfortunately, a recent study shows that home-use generators can be very dangerous. Our Johnson City injury lawyers know that there is a risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning when a generator is run for lengthy periods of time. However, a recent study confirmed just how high the risk can be for those running a generator regularly. The study suggests that generators will need to undergo a design change to address this danger before they can be truly safe for home use.
