I decided on a 200 amp service and a big panel to give myself options when installing outlets. Installing an electric panel seems to be a scary proposition, but it’s really quite satisfying. When you turn on power for the first time, it really is electric.
Doing a test of grinding the concrete to see if it looks good. This area was covered by my meter box. But it looks amazing.
Have the wires ready for the power company to pull through. They came while I was away and did it without any fuss. Said I did a good job when I ran into them a few days after.
Those big aluminum wires look scary. That’s why you keep them hidden when doing the panel. You don’t want to touch them, ever!
Securing the panel without a wall. Electrical inspector passed it with no concerns.
Let there be light!
