A good lesson for Jimmy on how not to wire a house. You can appreciate quality work when you see enough shoddy work. How much of it are you getting to fix. Most of it I hope.

As I've said before, just having a license or certification doesn't mean a thing.

One thing that I'm really concerned about is the green insulated wire connected at the top of the left hand neutral/ground bus. Please tell me that this is not the equipment ground of a feeder supplying this panel. I know that if it is you'll disconnect the metal bar that connects both busbars together and get the noodles connected in the right place.

At least he didn't throw away the bonding screw.

Tom,
Maybe it's because I haven't had my coffee yet. But I don't understand your post. Could you please elaborate.

Also, could someone tell me why there are four breakers across the top of this panel?

Tom,
Where do you see the bonding screw?
Pearl,
The 4 breakers are handle tied to provide a service disconnect.
