The Critical Piece to Adding Electrical to Your Container
You can’t add any electrical without a load center (the main breaker). We’re not electricians, so this piece is critical to allow whatever electrical you need to be brought into the container by a qualified electrician.
At A American, our standard load center is a 100 AMP main breaker with a grounding bar. We can customize this to go achieve a higher AMP wiring if needed.
