    I'm not trying to sway you in one direction or another but if you joined an electrical contractors association you probably would have enough CEU's just by going to meetings over the course of 3...

    You are correct. It does expire on the 31st. I stand corrected. However, if you go beyond that date there will be a late fee in addition to the regular fees. The reason I posted the second part...
  3. NJ Electrical License & Business Permit Renewal

    As I'm sure you all know your current license and business permit will expire on 03-15-15. You should have already received your renewal notice from the DCA. Unless you plan to drive to Newark and...

    As has been mentioned, as long as the panel accepts tandem (twin or piggy-backed) breakers you can use them. What you have to be careful with is if you're doing new work, many of the circuits may...

    Any double wall ovens that I've installed all have required a 40 amp circuit. This is not a scientific analysis but if the unit is on the job take a look at the whip coming off the back. If it has...

    That's it in a nut shell. If you are at a point in your life where making $15-20 per job is what's going to feed your family - well then you have to do what you have to do.

    I've experienced that on some of the Pass & Seymour GFI receptacles when you first power them up. If you push the reset then test and reset again and it goes away. I know this isn't a scientific...

    If they're trying to use them with the older Homeline panels that is correct. However, if they are buying any of the newer Homeline panels that's all HD is selling now.

    Thanks for that info. I would bet they are special order. I've never seen one. The other thing about using a sub-panel with such a large breaker is that you have to come up with creative (but...

    Probably as Iwire indicated, a restriction of the breaker panel. You'll have to do some research to find out what the limitation is. I believe the largest "plug-in" CB you'll find is a 100 amp...

    That's probably the way to go but most of us don't carry 4 wire NM cables on the truck. So, I would say for a F/L/NL run a 14/3 and a 14/2, tie all the whites together for the neutral and use the...
