This is Joshua Peterson with Peterson Electric.
We are here today to show you how we wrapped up for the service panel. Basically, what
we had to do today is change out the panel itself right
here and we had to run over here some conduit
right up here and
go all the way across. With this new panel change, we also did the meter here and tied
it into our grounds down below. As far as our panel, we had to run a conduit all the
way across the back of the house and then we had to therefore run all the way down the
side of the house, as you can see, to the end of this point right here. The reason why,
we did that was because we had to bond a #6 Copper for a 150 amp panel to the cold water,
in the basement. That is within 5 foot of the entrance
of the home, code 250.64. Basically, stating
that we have our grounds for our ground rod. We have our cold water bond and our ground
rod, we had to run a new one. These guys put a deck and we can’t find our ground rod down
below the dirt, so our new ground rod is right down here. I’ll go ahead and take you over
there. Here is our new ground rod. Basically, a #6 wire coming out here and bonding it to
an 8 foot ground rod, driving it straight through the Earth and choking it off. That
is our service change, our final look on it for what we have done on it. We will call
for final on it for our inspection. Job like this today was about a $3,200.00 job. Thanks!
Talk to you later.
