Comments requested from sparkys…
Found this in a Nova panel today.
Two seven strand aluminum wires (3 or 4 AWG) reduced in size by clipping five of the wires and wrapping electrician’s tape around the end and the remaining two wires connected to 30 amp circuit breakers.
This lead to a workshop via an underground conduit to a 100 amp service base (with no serial number, not hydro installed) which was in turn connected to a sub-panel. Numerous receptacles and light circuits ran from the panel.
Looked very home-owner installed so I have already recommended that the buyer has an electrician check it out (there were other issues as well).
Anybody else come across anything like that?
