Canadian Electrical Contractor Discussion Group

Canadian Electrical Contractor Discussions is a Facebook group designed to be a discussion forum for the electrical trade. Moderated by the Electrical Industry News Week team, we would like to bring together Canada's Electrician community as a resource for Canadian Electricians.

Whether you’re looking for advice for a particular job or code conundrum, want to post completed projects or even if you just want to gripe about an electrical mess you had to clean up. Below you'll find posts from the group, follow the link to join the discussion.

CECD Yaroslav panel 175This is a post from CECD member Yaroslav ON Energy.

"Just did 100 amp to 200 amp upgrade and once we turned lights started to flickering. Voltage was 105 V and 150V with load and ground carried 5 amp current. Without load voltage was perfect 125V and 125 V, we had to turn main off and call Alectra. Eventually it was bad neutral from transformer. Turned out that owner new about this issue and thought it was bad panel issue. Hydro temporary took neutral from neighbour and said it will be fixed in 10 business days."
