Safe per the NEC (or not)

Recommended Posts

At a recent re-inspection I was surprised to see that this panel had been unchanged. Then the owner handed me a receipt from a licensed electrician stating that this panel is safe per the NEC.

Am I missing something?

Find out who licenses electricians in your state. If they have an electricians board staffed by a group of electricians, send them a copy of the photo along with a copy of the letter from the electrician and ask them to profer an opinion. Bet they'll drop the hammer.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

I asked the owner if the electrician even opened up the panel. He said "Yup, stared at it for quite some time and couldn't find anything wrong".

I then proceeded to show him what was wrong and advised that him that he should find another electrician.
