The crew from PG&E arrived on Via Sereno this morning to prepare to run the new wires from the transformer to the underground electrical vault two doors up the street from us. At the same time, they were prepared to run the three cables from the newly constructed underground electrical vault installed yesterday through the three inch underground conduit to our 400 amp combined service entry device (electrical panel).
Although the temporary electrical service is still in place, pulling the wires from the underground vault to our electrical panel will save time and resources when we need to ‘heat up’ our panel.
So the team from PG&E pulled the three wires through to our panel. It went quite easily since there are only two 90 degree bends in the 25 ft 3 inch conduit. Bryan had the 2,500 lb pull tape in the conduit from the mandrel inspection on September 8, 2010.
Also, Bryan met with the City of Monte Serenp’s attorney, Kirsten Powell, regarding changing the City of Monte Sereno’s sign ordinance so we could have a temporary sign on our property and meet the criteria for Awareness and Education. This has been in progress for almost 18 months now. Kirsten explained what the issues are and that she will recommend to the City Manager, Brian Loventhal, how to move forward.
The sign ordinance will be interesting …
