This summer my wife and I spent almost 4 weeks working on the cabin, living in a tent with no power. I promised her I would not make her do that again. To that end, we visited the GVEA offices in Fairbanks and got the required documents complete with sketches and materials lists. We went over them and came up with a plan which we had approved by the office in Fairbanks. Then we purchased the materials and placed the panel and wires per the drawings and plan.
I took lots of pics because they told me that would help. Also, they only come out to hook you up in winter due to some swampy conditions in the area. Last week we sent in our application for service with all of our photos of the work. I just got a call saying my system will not work. The fellow was nice and explained why. I went back through all my documents and I have to agree that my work does not meet their drawings but it is exactly what I told them I was going to do.
bottom line is I attached to a batter board instead of a pole. I have all the correct connectors heights, cables and such, I just don't have the pole- my bad.
Now I have lost a year. I will have to put in a pole this year and hope they hook me up next winter, kinda depressing.
i just wanted to whine.
