    Problem with a genny or any other alternative supply is you won't won't be able to get meaningful on-load and off-load voltages for example.

    I guess if the premises has failed the Coc anyway for other reasons you could just leave the live tests entirely until a later visit for remedial works.

    This load shedding is really becoming a pain the butt.
    Get to a breakdown, 2 minutes into the call out, power goes off. Leave site and go to Durban to another job, stage 2 load shedding starts. It is also becoming extremely dangerous working as an electrician.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.
