Re: The renovation continues ... today new 400 amp service!

My home renovation continues, today was 400 amp underground service install day.

You may have two 200 amp panels, but your service wire doesn't appear rated for 400 amps.

Ya got me, I'm not an electrician or utility worker. The service says 400 amp on the bill to me, my electrician says 400 amp. He talked about 80% load calculation, not certain what that means. I've seen both 400 amp and 320 amp mentioned, somehow they are related, but exactly how is beyond my understanding.
