No service conductors when I took the picture, but other than that, what do you think?

2 romexes per clamp doesn't fit my style.

Wire ties make for a neat layout but I find I ended up cutting most of them if I have to troubleshoot a panel.

Looks nice...BUT (and not to bash the installer), why the need for wire ties on solid wire? The wires are nice and straight and will support themselves w/o the ty-wraps.


It IS a very nice job...everyone should be so diligent in "what's behind the scenes". (Even the switch box to the left is a classy install)

This install is actually done EXACTLY as suggested in NECA's 'workmanship' standard.

The two cables per clamp is in cmpliance with the UL listing. Such information is found on the box the clamps came in.

When I end up troubleshooting on a job like this, yes, I cut the cable ties, but I replace them afterwards, one of the overlooked facts about such a neat installation is it encourages those who come after to emulate the work.

A big thumbs up, this is a work of art! Someone has a lot of skill and pride in workmanship for sure!

With that said, since it looks like the feeder has to enter the bottom, how are they gonna get them up to the top lugs without destroying this nice work?

LOL, No doubt Jim of FL would find fault with it.

Of course it would work better if it had a feed. [Linked Image]

Put a plexiglass cover on this one - it's too nice to be covered up with the usual solid metal cover [Linked Image].

Question: Does derating come into play here, given the small amount of bundling of conductors?

Another question: under what circumstances would a panel be wired before the service conductors are installed? Just curious, because it seems traditionally that the service always comes first...(e.g. chicken or egg...?)
