World’s Biggest Electric Service Panel, or . . .?

The 600(!) Amp Service Panel

I’ve seen 100 Amp service panels — about the size of a bread box, recessed in a wall.

I’ve also seen 200 Amp service panels, which look like stretched breadboxes.

So I figured I must be looking at the mother of all service panels in the house I previewed earlier this week.

The explanation?

Behind the “service panel” cover was . . . a built-in ironing board.

And no, irons and ironing boards don’t loom very large in my life (can you say, “dry cleaner?”).
