200 AMP Electrical Panel Upgrade in Denver
"I called GTC Electrical to help with a Panel upgrade to a 200 amp for my home."
A homeowner called us for some help with upgrading their current 100 amp panel. It is not possible to upgrade from 100 amps to 200 amps simply by replacing your breaker panel. To upgrade to 200 amps from a smaller service, you will need a new breaker panel, circuit breakers, meter socket, service conductors, grounding electrodes and bonding conductors.
A 200 amp panel allows more circuits to be connected, and the cost difference between a 100 amp and 200 amp service is negligible. If you’re planning a home remodel involving significant electrical work, a 200 amp service is usually the best option.
