Electrical inspectors step on in...

TL/DR:

Pay fee to county by the circuit.

Ran a 125A sub panel off the main.

9 circuits off the sub.

Pay the man for the 1 circuit off the main?

Pay the man for 9 circuits off the sub?


Little vacation spot in ID on the river. Spent last couple weekends running power around the property. All to code, if not beyond. I know nothing, but a very experienced electrician designed the system. I'm lazy, when I do something I want to do it once. Maybe I will add a cabin, or run a welder, or charge a EV later, maybe a I won't, but I'm not diggin this shit up because I saved a buck on conduit or wire.

For the most part, they charge by the job cost. Of course, we fudge the numbers, being low bidder and cutting corners. Never been called on it yet.

That's fucked up.

It goes by job cost in every place I've pulled a permit.

I'd honestly not worry about it if it's a cabin in the woods.

1, especially if you don't have any breakers in the sub box.

Is there any reason to tell the county at all?

Our city permits are by sqft. State permits are by service size, number of circuits, and number of inspections. Our state inspectors will check to make sure you didn't go over the number of circuits on your permit, if you did they will send you a bill.
