    Default AKA Sub-Panel

    Does anyone see anything wrong with this 100 amp downstream service panel ? Aren't the neutral and grounds suppose to be separated in a aka sub-panel ? Thanks in advance

    Yes he should have installed a grounding bus on the back of the panel box for the grounding conductors.

    He should have provided grounding to the panel box with a 4th conductor. It is all wrong.

    In addition to being wrong because of not having a equipment grounding conductor, the Siemens breakers in that GE panel do not belong there.

    The service feed to the panel box is only two wire wire with a ground, it should be three wire with a ground.

    I just opened the thumbnails, ITE / Siemens breakers are pretty easy to recognize.
