Old service in need of an up-date.

Poor Electrical Foundation

This is an electrical service that has been rearranged several time making a confusing and difficult to trace. This pane, which is to the right of the entry of the building, looks like it is being fed from the troth below it. It is in reality being feed from the service on the other side of the wall.

Here is the panel on the other side of the wall that is feeding the panel to the right of the door way. This panel is around 60 to 70 years old. It should be up dater and it should not be use to feed the added load of the panel on the other side of the wall.

The panel by the door has another problem. The label on the cover says it has an A,B,C input. That mean that it was designed to be a 3phase panel. Looking at the cover you can see how someone tried to make this panel work with a single

Here you can see unprotected 100 amp electrical cable jumping back and forth between the services. The panels here are sub-panels off the main service. The cable being used is not only unprotected it also dosen't have the required ground and neutral separation.
