Following is a listing of the general requirements for electrical panel replacements based on the 2013 California Electrical Code. This brochure is intended to provide general information, contact the Building Safety Division for any questions or additional information.

  • General Requirements - The main electrical service shall be installed with rigid conduit. Electrical metallic tubing may be used where the service drop is attached to the building. The service entrance cable may be used, provided the approved fittings are used with the cable, such as a rain-tight service head or forming the cable goose-neck, taped or painted, and held securely in place by a fitting approved for the purpose. (Article 230)

    The minimum size service conduit shall be 1-1/4”. The minimum size service entrance wire shall be rated 100 amperes minimum for single family dwellings. For single family homes, the service disconnect means shall have a rating of less than 100 amperes, 3-wire. A larger service may be required for new homes or additions to existing homes based on the actual load calculations. (CEC 230.79(c))

  • Service Entrance Conductors (Wires) – Conductors that extend across a roof shall have a minimum vertical clearance of 3’ above the roof surface for roofs sloped 4:12 or more (18” clearance required when conductors enter through the roof overhang/eave).

(Article 230.24)
