One of those days yesterday where you think you have everything but instead youre searching through every crevice in the van. I only had a bad ko set on the van so i had to drive home to get my other set. Back and forth through the mud climbing through a window to get to the basement.

If the panel already had ground bars in it why didn't you just bond it and use them?

Edit: I see that it is already bonded.

Instead of piping the feeder in separately, I would have just shoved a piece of SE cable down the center pipe with the romex :thumbup:
We cant use se here. Its a city code all panels/subs have to be in conduit

If it's not the main disconnect, I always pull the ground bars out and use them on main panels that don't come with ground bars. That's $6-9 of pure profit baby.
Wouldn't you pull them if the panel was the main disco? Or am I confused?

Hax, we don't allow SE cable in these parts. Hell, where he is at they don't even allow MC cable.
Is that a 30 space 150 in a new house. That is crazy, and as an owner I would be pissed if I bought the house. Hell I won't even do that in a habitat house. You save what. $15 maybe $20.

Yep 30 space 150. We originally bid it for a 200 but they said nope we only want 150s. House is pretty tiny probably the smallest ive done.

I would like to see 2 conduits for the bundles. Odd circuits on the left, even on the right, with the SE in the middle.
