3 Types of Electrical PanelsThe type of electrical panel you have installed in your home depends on the size of your home and the amount of electricity you use.
- The Main Breaker Panel shuts off the power to your house. Your home receives a large amount of electricity from the main breaker panel. This panel protects the circuits and determines the amperage capacity of the panel.
- The Main Lug Panel does not have a main breaker. It has line wires that run into lugs. In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, you can turn off the power to your house using a separate panel installed outside your home.
- The Sub Panels is for customers that require several circuits installed in one area of their home. A circuit located in the main panel powers the sub panels. You cannot turn them off, but you can adjust the amount of electricity the panel distributes throughout your property.
