10. Does the generator need to be grounded?
Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. If the manual calls for grounding the generator, that's relatively easy to do. One simple way is to run a 12-gauge ground wire from the grounding terminal on the generator to a copper ground rod you've driven into the soil next to the generator. (The generator will have a grounding terminal symbol to help you identify the terminal's location.)
Eskom has published guidelines on which generators people must buy in South Africa
