This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will install a subpanel and its grounding system.  Don't you hate it when you want to weld in the barn but there isn't enough juice out there?  Let's upgrade the power and put in a subpanell!

Here's a video of a guy doing it:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - install a new subpanel (interior or exterior)
  - include ground rod(s) per your jurisdiction
  - connect supply wires to the subpanel and energize

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the location before you start the job
  - the panel installed
  - supply wires connected
  - grounding rod(s) pounded in
  - some indication that the panel has power and works (multimeter showing voltage, outlet with power, etc)
He was giving me directions and I was powerless to resist. I cannot resist this tiny ad:
