Panel Replacement

Panel Service Request

Panel and service upgrade photo request

We would need two clear photos of:
Photo #1 - Close up of the inside of the panel and breakers, with the door open.
Photo #2 - Take a photo stepping back as far as needed, to have a view of the ceiling,
the panel and the floor in this one shot.
This will allow him to see the location of the panel,
and if there are any obstructions around it.
It is very important that all three of these are in the same photo.
This will confirm that the panel is in a code compliant location.
The code required working clearances for a panel or a sub-panel are
30” total side to side, and 36” front to back,
with no obstructions side to side, above, or below the panel.
A panel cannot be located above stairs/steps, in a bathroom, a clothing closet,
or recessed from finished wall.
Service upgrade with a new panel
(This may be required if the panel is not in a code compliant location)
We would need these additional photos:
**Photo #3 – A photo of the side of the house where the current meter is located.
**Photo #4 – A photo stepping back far enough to see the service lines attached to the meter
and the ground in the photo. (The whole side of the house.)
**A description of where the panel is located in relation to the new meter spot.
