Re: Grounding Rods

:D
There is always a blank wall plate for access/proof of ground in close proximity to the panel on the opposite side of the wall as the meter in my neck of the woods.

Re: Any ideas?

It looks like there are several different brands or types of breakers installed. Hard to tell which ones are correct for the panel.

Re: Alumiconn

My research shows the QO is now obsolete and has been replaced by the QD. Both breakers are labeled as CU/AL.

Re: Main Disconnect

Split buss panel.
When all the 220 v breakers at the top of the panel are off, the panel is 'dead'.
The bottom 220v breaker on the left bank shuts off the lower section of 110v breakers.

What can you say

Was the electrician having a bad day?

Re: Neutral on breaker

White conductor is improperly identified.

Any white (or grey) grounded conductor that is used as an ungrounded conductor must be identified as such: i.e. wrapped with black tape at both ends.
