200 Amp main electrical service Philadelphia PA

Lauterborn Electric was called to Olde Kensington by a customer who was having water enter the electrical equipment through the electrical service cable.

A closer look revealed the 100 AMP service cable starting to fray due to years of weather exposure allowing rain to enter into the electrical equipment.

While on site we also discussed several options with the home owner who opted to upgrade to 200 AMPS to allow for future rewiring.

The work was completed the Lauterborn Electric way using PVC to protect the service cable on the exterior. We built a backboard to allow for the new equipment installation and installed a new breaker properly sized for every existing circuit.

We also grounded the main electrical system including jumping the water meter, driving two ground rods and installing a grounding bridge.
