What a crappy breaker box
#1
So I bought a energy monitor.
Went to put it in tonight and there's no place to put the current transformers



Its solid copper bus bars from the meter to the 200 amp breaker.
I cut the tab off the power companys side and its solid coper bar also.

Anyone have ideas how to monitor current?

Possible sollution is to swap out a part of the busbar from the 200A breaker that goes to rest of the breakers to a thicker cable. Or just hang the sensors around the incoming cable to the left part.

Note that cutting of the tab on their side can cause issues for you. Not sure in your area but where we live there can be huge fines in worst cases.

There is access to the busbars on that side but I don't think the power company would like that.

There is also a tag on the meter. If you cut that one its a HUGE no no.
The other ones aren't that big of a deal here.

Yeah you need to get the part between the main fuse and your fuses separated or between incoming meter and the 200A fuse separated.

We have busbars on main fuses too here but we generally always have wires between that and the incomming fuses that we can add a meter on.

Awesome breaker panel. Was this your DIY thing? I found some old "fuse boxes" with the screw in fuses at a scrap yard and I love them. Also that engine in your profile looks a bit bug to be Electric...haha!

it would cost thousands to replace.

since in arizona its standard practice for the breakers to be outside and the meter is attached.

i would need the power company to disconect me and a licenced sparky to change the panel out.
