All of this requires coordination with Southern California Edison.
Step 1: Call SoCal Edison so they can "plan", "design", and "approve" the new run. [COMPLETED]
Step 2: Dig a ditch from the location of the new service panel to the telephone pole, and have an electrician install 3" diameter conduit. [COMPLETED]
Step 3: Get the conduit inspected by SoCal Edison and then backfill the ditch [COMPLETED]
Step 4: Wait [drywall must be installed and all new outlets and switches installed and inspected by The City]
So for now we have an old 100A panel and meter in the middle of our new addition.
|Original 100A panel and meter (now in the center of the new master bedroom addition)|
|A section of 3" conduit was laid in place prior to the concrete slab being poured. This feeds into the back of the new panel from the inside of the wall.|
|trench with new 3" conduit is 3 feet below grade|
|The 3" conduit goes under the SoCal Edison service box at the base of the telephone pole|
|That's our "little" conduit poking thru the bottom of the Edison's service box|
|A large metal tank was found in the back yard, believed to be the overflow tank for back-washing the pool filter|
|The new 200A panel and meter are on the side of the house|
