Had a fire in one room (NZ Lockwood home) and renovated the entire interior due to smoke damage. Changed my main panel (150 amp) to a 200 amp and balanced the load to all breakers. No addition to load (@ 150).
Had a 1/0 feed to 150 amp main. The master electrician whom I've hired to sign off on the work says the NEC Code calls for a 2/0 for 200 amp main, but the load remains the same, so I disagree. The local power authority agrees with me do I hire another ME?
