Unless you are running a lot

In reply to 240V vs 120V - voltage drop on a new subpanel by Ed on February 23rd, 2003 11:05 PM [Go to top of thread]

of the equipment at the same time, I don't think you need to worry too much. Since you have a lot of new install, you might want to go back through your panel and subpanel and recheck the connections for proper tightening which is done with a torque screw driver according to the listed torque values on the breakers....deenergized, of course. This is a good idea for the first couple of years on a new service anyways. Make sure you have good neutral connections in particular. The radial saw in particular will pull way more than the rated amps on start, but it is for short duration and designed to take it. If lights dim for more than just a flicker when a big load starts, then maybe you might have a problem. Luck, Kizmet
