The panels I inspect typically fall into two categories: (1) beautiful and (2) yukky–FPE, Zinsco, fuses, etc.
In my beautiful category yesterday, I had what I would consider an excessive amount of excess wiring in the panel. Is there a reference somewhere for the amount of excess wiring in the panel? Do we call it out as a defect and why? What are the ramifications of excess wiring?
I'm posting this for one of my employees because I don't seem to be able to convey to him the problems as I see them. I figure there are some code gurus, electrical gurus, or someone who just plain talks better about electricity than I do that can do a better job than me on this one. Thanks.
