Okay, so I had a discussion with a church "electrician" today (not licensed, more a handyman who has been an electrician's helper and does some light electrical work for them).
Now we normally error on the side of permitting. We permit our dimmer rack installs, and any electrical work we have to do for the install (new breakers, etc).
Well, this guy has the church convinced that there really isn't a reason to permit installing a 150A breaker and an ETC 12x10A SmartPack Wall Mount rack, along with 12 circuits. They are pressuring me to forgo the permitting and the resulting costs.
I know what I am going to do, but I wanted to get the thoughts of some other contractors on your permitting guidelines.
