How can I wire the generator to power my entire house?

Power Joe does not connect to your meter like a home standby generator. It is a portable generator that can be used to power multiple appliances (like lamps, TVs, electronics, sump pumps, kitchen appliances, microwaves, refrigerators, fans, heaters, small AC portable units) by using extension cords. Once Power Joe is running and positioned safely outside your home, you can connect the included 25 ft heavy-duty extension cord to Power Joe’s appropriate receptacle on its main dashboard.  Then, run this extension cord inside your home through a back door or window and connect it to a suitable power strip/surge protector. This will then provide power to the power strip and allow you to plug in and power multiple appliances around your home.
