Is your House Electrical Panel Safe?

Please note that one of our neighbors had an issue with their electrical panel and we wanted you to be aware in case you are in this situation also.    It appears to apply to Charbonneau homes that have not been significantly renovated.

Here is the note:  “We are having some electrical work done and the electrician pointed out that our electrical panel is on a Federal recall list and a safety and fire hazard.  The panel was made by the now-defunct Federal Pacific. An article about its panels is attached”. (see link below).

“We are having our panel replaced in the coming week.  The cost is $1845 which could be a surprise and burden for some residents.  In any case, I thought you should know, if you didn’t already”.

These Federal Pacific electrical panels are the same ones we replaced at the CHOA pools last year.
