Started the electric to the shop

Hi all-

Finally got some time to work on the electric to the new shop.

I got the two meter bases set and the two panels set.

Not much but it is a start.

Steve

Cool! Why two meters? Two services to get enough juice?

I wish it was three phase. The electrical company said NO! So I have two 400 amp circuits. The one panel is for a 60 hp phase converter.

Yup, the electric company said $20,000 minimum and yup, I said NO!

Keep on plugging away!

Neat! That's a big RPC. You have pony motor on it to fire it up?

I thought I was bigtime when I got a single 400 amp service to split between the house and the shop...
