When were electrical panels banned from installation in closets?
Tuesday, December 31, 2019
The 1981 National Electrical Code (NEC) was the first edition of the code to ban panels in closets. We still see electric panels in the corner of the closet in homes from the 1970s and earlier. But the panel will have to be moved when the homeowner replaces it to upgrade the service. The code citation applies only to clothes closets, and not pantries or other storage rooms.
