Either my memory is playing tricks on me, or I remember PVC meter pans and plastic/PVC residential load centers were once on the market...

Why don't you guys ever consider putting panels indoors? I get that it outside definitely makes the upgrades easier, but if exposure is really that big a problem then it's the best solution.

What else can you do? Build a doghouse around it? Put in 4X equipment? Stuff like that costs a fortune.

This is the first time ill be quoting work out by the ocean like this. I know 3r doesnt last long. However, 4x is expensive. Customer thought of putting panel in a fiberglass housing. Obviously not an optjon. Reason I was asking for any products someone may know of that works great and not a few grand a piece.
