Thread: Lateral service wires

  1. #1

    Smile Lateral service wires

    When lateral service wires do not reach the posts of the new panel what options are available? Can the bus bars be extended in some fashion. Are kits available if this is an option?

    Splice on an extension or move or flip the panel. Are these laterals in the air or direct buried? If so, splice. If in a raceway, you're going to need an access point for the splice or pull out the wire and go buy the correct length.

    A crimp on splice would be the best for this, and factory insulated instead of taping after the fact.
