    This is a code question, best contact a reputable electrician in your area. Might let the expert do the wire-in to the system as well for safety reasons.

    I have to agree with kcb, it would be best to hire a qualified electrician. The gage of wire will depend on the type of wire used and it must be installed with a code compliant transfer switch.
