This photo was gleaned from a "Careers - Becoming an Electrician" website.

Can anybody guess where it was taken? (I don't know, myself)

The metering seems........different, as well as the wiring methods laugh

Gee, I hope that this isn't as good as it gets in someone's lifelong career shocked

I don't care where it is as long as I never go there and see/pass by it.

Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Wild guess? Argentina. Where else will you find an "English" meter and an "American" panel?

Likewise, the brickwork suggests mots of rain, but little freezing weather.

I'm still attempting to understand how that metering is working??? confused (UK emon dmon's?) I'm guessing it's metering a specific circuit from the sad looking QO panel...

aside from the meters, this could be in some alley in East Bakersfield... rolleyes

May I guess here? I think the photo was taken in Thailand.

I suspect the metering isn't working! Not as the kwh meters they look like anyway. Not enough wires....

I think it was taken at the display in the local Big Box store.

The wires in the picture could easily be line side with the load side disappearing right through the wall.
