This is a past job Panel Upgrade Experts took on to increase the height of a electrical service in Saddle Ridge, Calgary.
On this job, the homeowner was selling the property and the buyers inspector commented that the overhead 100 amp service was too low. Since the electrical service cables had been installed, a deck had been built up high off the ground, and the overhead service wires were now within reach!
Our electricians worked hard to meet the current code of clearance for the service wires.
We used a larger than average size service mast to raise the service as high as possible. We also had to remove some of the soffits to gain access to the roof where we fixed a pressure treated 2″x4″ piece of wood to give a superior fixing to the new higher service mast.
Once the new service passed the city of Calgary inspection, we arranged with Enmax to disconnect power from the old service mast and reconnect to the new higher service mast.
After the house was re-energized on the new installation the old service mast and meter base were removed, leaving the homeowner with a new (and to current electrical code) service mast that was compliant with the buyers inspector.
This electrical service job to increase the height of the wires was completed without any issues and passed all electrical inspections.
