Main Panel Upgrade
What is a panel upgrade?
A panel upgrade is simply changing your electrical panel (or main service panel), found within a painted grey or metal box, containing your home’s fuses/circuit breakers.
Why do I need an electric panel upgrade?
In order to keep your system up-to-code and your family safe, a new electric panel upgrade is sometimes necessary. Adding solar panels to your home means more energy will be produced and circulated through your home—sometimes more energy than your current, often older, electrical panel can handle. This is due to the increased amperage of your solar energy system in comparison to traditional electricity.
Reasons to consider upgrading your main service panel include:
Your panel may be outdated and should be upgraded anyway. Electrical Panels with fuses and those made by Federal Pacific Electric (FPE), Bulldog/Pushmatic, Zinsco panels are known in the electrical industry to be hazardous.
Installing solar on your home requires increased capacity for electricity. Choosing not to upgrade your electrical panel could prevent you from larger home additions such as a adding a pool, spa, electric vehicle charging station, or increasing square footage to your home.
This is an opportune time to have your panel upgraded, as it is much less expensive to have done with your solar installation than any other home addition.
