Just moved to Naples, Florida and want to install a whole house generator. Selected a Generac dealer and decided on a 22W size generator. Going thru the permitting process I discovered I have a 7.5' Drainage Easement along the side of my one story house where my electrical & gas are located. Collier County rejected the permit. The Generac dealer then suggested I sign an Easement Use Agreement and resubmit to the County, but I am not comfortable with that since that gives them the right to move our Generac if they need to maintain, repair, or add more to the Easement. And this would be at my expense each time this occurs! So then the Generac dealer said we could put the generator on the other side of the house but since there is no access to gas there, they would have to run the gas thru our attic and over to the other side of the house. Yikes! Is this my only option? HOA does not allow generators in the front yard and back yard is on a lake. Has anyone done this successfully? I can't be the only one dealing with Easement challenges. I appreciate your advice.
