Get an electrical inspection!

From Dan Rosenblatt, one of our earliest members:

For those folks putting in a car charging circuit,  I strongly recommend a fully licensed electrician that obtains county permits triggering an official inspection.  My 100A line (for 80A charging) went in 3 years ago and was never inspected.  I had used an electrician recommended by Tesla.  The pictures that follow show the result.

  1. Holy smokes! What was the root cause? Did the breaker fail, or was the installation somehow faulty (gauge undersized or bends too tight)?
