I'm retired but I still go in and take care of panel/service changes occasionally.

We were allowed to just replace the panel on this one. It was ugly when I got there and it was still ugly when I left.







And yeah, I have a level :laughing: That's as good as I could get it. Believe it or not, the panel was more level than the pole.

And, yeah, my table legs weren't secure and most everything dumped.

From a couple weeks ago. Resi, relocate. For some reason we decided to go up and over with romex to refeed the existing circuits. I'm not sure it was the right call. A fat conduit run would have been easier.

Now that I look back, I'm not even sure why it was relocated. There was enough clearance. Maybe POCO didn't want to squeeze in next to the condensing unit?

Its hard to polish a turd and make it look like a gold nugget.

Hard to make chicken soup out of chicken 5hit.

Hard to make a silk purse from a sows ear.

215 volts to ground?

You guys have some crazy **** down there. What do you get between 215 and 208?
And they're not even using it, meaning, their 3 phase service is really only 2 phases. Would that make it single phase?

I remember from an old post you saying that a lot of times on panel changes with old 208 deltas, that sometimes you would leave the high leg in the meter and just turn it into a single phase service. Was that not possible with this one? I cant tell from the pics if you have any 3 pole breakers in there.
