Default MC2040B1200ESC Siemens 200 - interlock?

Have a Siemens 200 (MC2040B1200ESC) panel surface-mounted. Wanting to setup a backup generator. Looking for an interlock that works for this model panel. Any suggestions? If not interlock...perhaps I have to go the Transfer switch route?
thanks for your expertise!

Very informative response. Perhaps you can elaborate and enlighten the rest of us?
Or maybe you are just looking to increase your POST count?

"The rest of us" already know what you should do... Call an electrician.

A meter main with a high fault current is no place for someone who doesn't know what they are doing to play around in, especially one setup for solar.

What do you mean "us"? Do you have a mouse in your pocket? Those of us who frequent this forum are electricians & that is who you should call as HackWork said.

Sure. Electrician is coming to take a look this week. Just trying to learn more. So funny to see people not able to share information. Glad I'm not a dinosaur working hourly.

And you're illiterate, since, you couldn't read post #4. Btw, I'm retired & don't have to go to work.
