The answer is yes. I bought 5 from a municipal power company and the reason I
only bought 5 is that I couldn't get any more in the truck!! The total
the 5 was $375. They ranged from 5 to 15 KVA and 14400 to 22900 volts.
Try to find a mom and pop municipal power company in your area and you would be
surprised how helpful they can be.
I live in upstate NY.
