  3. Confirming that the wires entering the panel have the correct bushing retainer and plastic pieces.
  4. Verifying that the wires are adequately protected and of the correct size.
  5. Checking the breakers for any instances of double tapping.
  6. Testing the functionality of the breakers.
  7. Using an infrared camera to inspect the panel for hotspots or defective breakers.
