A copy of the current survey works. On occasion, they may ask to 'see' an original.

Think about installing a shed, or a gen & having to fork over the going price for a new survey. I wonder how much they would charge to sign & seal copies that a HO brought to the surveyor, as long as it's the same guy.

I also heard that another town will not allow gensets because they genset will be louder than the noise ordinance will allow. So the zoning officer does not permit gens of any kind in his town.

I haven't heard that there is a 'noise' issue. There is concerns with the adequate supply of natural gas in some neighborhoods.

If you find one with a cut sheet that has a equal or lower noise level than the ordnance what would he do?

Sounds to me like you are going to see a lot of generators running off cords and when the noise cops come, in the garage.

Are they as strict on manual generators?

The newer style panel covers are AWESOME they provide interlock protection between the utility and your standby, however a lot of people use those isolating type transfer switches around here(Washington State)I don't like them as much because you are set in stone as to which circuits will work during outage. The factory panel cover with interlock is great because you can use what ever circuits you want by simply flipping breakers.

Of course the gas generators have a major drawback(GAS) that limits them to 2-3 days of fuel and major storms out east seem to last WEEKS, but if natural gas pressure drops all those people who thought they were ready for the next storm might be pissed when their generator conks out.

John,

I have to check with the EC who told me that story about the zoning officer to see which town it was. However you would be right to say that if the town just doesn't want gensets, they will make up any excuse that the can find.

The homeowner could always use a quiet indoor type generator.
