Do I need a permit for a Generator ?

No, If you are purchasing a generator from a local hardware store that requires fuel and is not wire to your home, you do not need a permit.

Yes, If you are adding a full house generator you will require a permit, Residential Remodel/Generator permit requires a survey of the home, the specs of the generator being installed, and the gas source, If propane will be used a drawing with the location of the tank is required and natural gas required no documentation. Electrical and Gas inspections are required.
