Shouldn't this be in the 'violations' area? Looks like there is no main disconnect, and there's more than 6....

Edit: OOPS... that's main to the left ... all those cables are on the 'load' side ..... what a mess!

that has to be the most hideous code-compliant installation I have ever seen!!!
it looks to me like the electricians who installed this took quite a bit of care to make those cables straight and neat, but with that many it'd be a herculean task... there has got to be a dozen better ways to do this...

but imagine the look on the EC's face when he found out the job requirments for this laugh

It looks like the original install was about a dozen meters, then someone decided to double the number of units. The bottom layer of cables look nice and secure, and then the second layer was ty rapped on top of the original install.

I can't believe anybody, no matter how inexperienced could walk away from that job and consider it to be done properly. That is really, really bad.

A large number of motels in the Wildwood area are being converted to condominiums, which may explain the "reason" for this install. NO, that is no excuse for the sorry looking install.
