A friend has off-grid solar power for his home. He also has a portable, dual powered, electric push-button start, generator.

On multiple cloudy days, he wants to recharge the solar batteries with his generator. He needs to know how/where to wire the generator to make it auto-start when the battery bank voltage reaches a certain low point.

He knows the components he needs to add to his solar system, but not how/where to connect to the wiring on the generator for auto-starting.

BTW - The generator electric-powered push start button is a momentary on-type switch. He says the back of the switch has four poles, but the switch is only wired to two poles.

We are wondering if maybe the new (auto-start) pos/neg wires can be wired to the other two poles?
Could it be that easy?
If not, what other suggestions/directions are out there?

Thanks in advance for your answers. ✌

we need pix and makes and model numbers for every thing involved.

yea there are modules that make a call for generator.
he might want to seek out a good dealer as a system engineer for the solar system mod.
way too many things to look at over the forum...
