I opened my panel recently to replace my buzzing doorbell transformer.
I’ve been putting it off for ages.
It has been buzzing for the past 25 years or so, so I figured it was time to get to work.
So I purchased the replacement and then…
(I am located in Alberta, Canada)
I have two separate dedicated circuits with their respective ground and neutral wires tapped under the same lug on the bus. (See images: first is easy to spot on top terminal. Other is the third lug from the bottom.)
One on each neutral bar and both are dedicated 15 amp to outside lights; a...
While adding a sub-panel I found I have no remaining space on the neutral bar for a 3/0 neutral connector.

I am sure there have been many reported wirings of old houses.
I am gradually rewiring an old house (log cabin). I think the original wiring must have been done by the seat-of-the-pants of whoever was doing the wiring -- different people at different times.
Most of the circuits are two-wire...

I am wiring a new room in the basement. In doing so I am adding three new AFCI circuit breakers to my box. As I have read other folks mention... I am low on spots on the ground bar.
Just some quick info on my what I have:
