So I have had an ongoing issue in my house with lights dimming. For example when my wife runs her hair drier in the bedroom the lights dim in the entire house. Or when we run the coffee maker. Or when the a/c kicks on. Etc.

We had the power company come out twice and run tests and all is good from their line to the meter.

Since then I have metered the voltage on the lugs in my panel. Both are at a constant 121 voltage.

Metering below my main breaker both phases are at a constant 121 volts.

But when metering individual circuits they vary from 115-129 volts.

After further metering in the panel I’ve discovered when I meter at the bottom of phase A it is 129 volts while phase B is 115 volts.

Does anyone know what is going on here? Your input is valued. Thank you.
