Main Electrical Panel | Panel Box | Electrical Work | Electrical Installation


Why do you need a main panel?

An electrical system needs a main panel to break up the power supply of 100 amps or larger down to branch circuits. Branch circuit requirements start at 15 amps and can go as large as required by the specific item and voltage. Having a licensed and bonded electrician is a must have in this situation to make sure everything is properly installed. Properly installed circuit breakers and fuses are essential to keeping your family safe. GFCI and AFCI breakers provide even more protection from shorts and arc faults.

Maybe you don't have enough power in your home or business? This could be due to your undersized electrical panel power supply.  Shocky Electric Phoenix AZ. electrician can replace your 50 amp, 70 amp, and even 100 amp outdated electrical service panel or fuse box with a new 100 amp, 150 amp or 200 amp service panel.

The main panel is where the primary power source is distributed to the branch circuits throughout the house or building.

Components

The main breaker: is a large double pole circuit breaker that limits the amount of electricity coming 
   in from outside to protect the circuits it feeds. It also identifies your breaker panel’s amperage capacity.

Circuit breakers: are stacked in the panel and have an ON/OFF switch that controls the flow of power.
•  Bus bars: receive power from the two thick black wires that bring power in from the electrical meter. 
  The bus bars in turn carry power through the circuit breakers to the circuits.

•  Neutral bus:  bars connect to the main circuit’s neutral wire. The neutral bar provides the contact point for 
  the white wires that return electricity back to the breaker panel after flowing through the black wires to 
  power a device. Your home’s main grounding wire also connects to the neutral bar.

Grounding bus bars:  unite all the grounding wires from the breaker panel’s various circuits and connect 
  them to the ground bar. It is also connected to a grounding conductor that leads underground, the metal 
  enclosure and, if it’s the main service panel, to the neutral bar; the ground bar is not connected to the 
  neutral bar at sub-panels

Types Of Main Panels

There are few different types of breaker panels that you might need upgraded.  Each of which meets a certain code requirement or application, depending on your area. Shocky Electric can check to determine which type of panel meets your local compliance requirements.
Main breaker panels: Which has a built-in main breaker which can be used to shut off all power to your residence. A main breaker is a large double-pole circuit breaker that limits the amount of electricity coming in from outside to protect the circuits it feeds. It also identifies your breaker panel’s amperage capacity.

Main lug panels:  Do not have a main breaker. Instead the line wires run to lugs. This type of breaker panel requires a separate disconnect. The main breaker, which would function as the disconnect, may be located at the meter, or if the main lug panel is used as a sub-panel, it may be connected to the breaker at the main panel. In the event of a fire, the separate disconnect at a meter can be helpful to fire authorities, who don’t have to enter the building to cut power.
