Well that sucks
Weird because the utility company is responsible for the main feeders from the overhead to the transformer as that's the utility co owned components. The contractor is responsible for the conduit in which those feeders are ran...I've had CenterPoint make us replace conduit when the incorrect schedule was installed...if it was indeed the wire size, that's only a 4hr delay...I'd like to see the wording of the deficiency.
The wire from the transformer was aluminum and not copper.
How long to fix?
Aluminum feeders are commonly used as they are less desirable to wire thieves...you only have to use a larger gauge wire. I've no seen any evidence primary feeders were ever installed. The vertical conduits up the pole are not installed. Again, the wording of the "red tag" would be help for us to better understand the delay.
Primary feeders have been installed.
No fuses or meter.
And someone didn't approve of the sign placement...?
I know *I* don't approve of placing the signs right against the curb. Makes it difficult when backing in using a cargo carrier or bike rack. With the cargo carrier on, I just back up until I hit them.
Not a problem at this site, with the three stalls with the pedestals on the side of the stall...
Yep...the GC subcontractor said they were moving each sign 3' behind back of curb.
As of 9:30 am Saturday (8/10/19), the signs have been moved back. There is still no power.
I was in the area and went to look at them. Pulled up and connected to see if they were work.
Driving by there tomorrow. Bummer it isn't done yet.
What we need to be looking for now is...
(1)Fuses installed on the overhead
(2)Meter installed on the transformer
Meter can installed...
Still looking for fuses and the meter.
Any word yet if they're working... I actually need them today.
I was there yesterday and there's no change...they will not be active today.
Still not working. The guy at Rudy's counter thought they were working but I told him I tried them and they are dead.
The electrical contractor needs to change all of the AC distribution wire from aluminum to copper. Webster code as well as the plans submitted for permit specifies this.
So I'm guessing that's from the transformer to the switchgear and then from switchgear to charger cabinets...wow. Wondering if sub will be added to the preferred vendor list...haha.
Should have used the GC from the other 2 Rudy's SC installs.
Lots of activity today!
Given the reputations of the city governments in SE Houston (City of Webster and the City of League City are two I often hear complaints about) when it comes to contracting/permitting work, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if the GC declined this install.
