    Dropping power factor but keeping same watts will result in higher VA which means higher current if volts is same.

    Adding power factor correction to a motor circuit near the motor would mean you...

    My guess is they won't go down, but they may not go up at same rates as other products by same makers which effectively is somewhat like a price decline. They have put too much into R&D and lobbying...

    But when you go over 60 amps the ends of fuses typically are blade type instead of round, and I don't think any of those are long enough to fit 60 amp 600 volt fuseholders either:ashamed1:

    Going by NEC only, if the service drop is not supported by the raceway - it can be most any raceway that is suitable for outdoors, or even use suitable cable assemblies - in particular type SE.

    You can run 4" RMC if you want, it still isn't any stronger then what it is fastened to. 2 inch is plenty strong enough if well fastened and the drop isn't too long or heavy. If there are large tree...

    How much does a typical 2x4 troffer weigh these days? I bet less then 10 pounds - especially since you don't find magnetic ballasts in them anymore.
