    My boss is looking for a back-up generator for the entire building.
    We presently have a feed of: 600v,3PH,400Amp.
    The load is only around 75-125Amp during the peak times.
    Should I be looking for a 600v,3PH supply or can it be a 220-240v,3PH
    and then put a step-up transformer prior to the connection, which is best?
