When they upgraded your service to 200 amp, did they hide all the wires in the walls and put the new panel 'in' your wall, or was everything installed 'on' your wall with conduit, etc? I'm just curious. When my solar went in, my service upgrade from 100 amp to 200 amp cost about the same, but they used conduit everywhere. I'm wondering if I should have said something or if that's standard ops.

The electricians probably wanted to do the job without having to call in a drywall trade. As Holmes on Homes would say "Come on, guys!"

The AV video about installing the EVSE shows a conduit - I think that is the std procedure.

They had the power company remove the meter then they labeled all the wires. Then removed the box and put the new box in the same place as the old box. Feeding the wires back in the hole in the back of the box. Looks sweet.
