It was necessary to relocate the electrical service due to the location of the new addition. The home had the original Federal Pacific Stab-Lok panel. CWC Electric, LLC always recommends this brand panel be replaced due to safety issues (refer to our website for additional information).
This job required a 95 foot long, 30-inch deep trench from the utility pedestal to the new meter can location. Trenching can be difficult because you do not know what you will find below ground. It is not uncommon to hit cement, large rocks, tree roots or improperly marked utility lines. On this job we had a very narrow, downhill area within to trench with several utility lines to avoid.
Once the pipe has been laid, the trench is back filled and compacted.
The new General Electric 200 amp panel has been installed and the home is now ready for construction to begin on the new addition.
