About Load Centers
A load center or circuit breaker panel, is a metal electrical service box that accepts the main power to a home or business and distributes electrical current to the various circuits within the structure. The distribution of power to the various circuits are protected from over-current by the use of circuit breakers or fuses. Once you open the door of the breaker box, you can access all the circuit breakers or fuses. If you're adding to or repairing an existing panel, you may need to purchase fuse block holders or circuit breaker accessories to get the job done right.
