I was asked by a local electrical contractor to stop by their shop and help train the electricians on service/grounding/bonding sizing.

Please take a minute and review this drawing I created. PLEASE let me know if you find any errors in it. Thank you.

Ryan,
You don't have enough 600 kcmil cables for a 1600 service. You need 4 sets, which changes the line side bonding jumper to 300 kcmil.

EEK!!!!!

Thats why I posted this! I used the same diagram here that I used for a 1200A!!!

I had this for a 1600A, then I deleted (1) pipe on the feeder and one on the service entrance conductors, but I overlooked changing the rating of the fuses! (embarrassed)

thanks Don!
