I've got my electrical contractors license, but I'm not really doing anything with it right now. I was a couple of years ago though.

Electrician? I hope you don't get as emotional about hooking up new service as you do about college football. I'm not sure I'd want my stuff out of phase. Not an electrician, but I make the raw product, one megawatt hour at a time.

15 years as an electrician and last 5 as a contractor. In WA.state,it is required to have an administrator license(or you can hire 1 as an employee) to become an electrical contractor. How about other states?

In North Carolina, all you need is the electrical contractors license. You can hire as many as you want, but the total project cost of any one project can not exceed a value determined by the license you hold: Limited license:$25,000 Intermediate license:$75,000 Unlimited license:unlimited There are also a few low voltage special restriction licenses for HVAC, plumbing, and alarm contractors.

Yeah, but ICmen are "fresh air" snipes - even though I worked in the main machinery room and saw the light of day once or twice a month.

Snipes are snipes, period (exception being if they're assigned outside of engineering as in RASE). First boat I was on, ALL and I mean ALL of engineering shared the same berthing. Tight bunch. Drank many a beer and shared many a liberty in the PI and points beyond and in between with E DIV guys.

I am also non-union. In WA.state, there are 2 type of journey license and administrator. General and specialty. General covers every aspect of electrical construction and there are residential, sign, pump and limited energy specialty license. General requires 8000 hours of training hours and 4000 for any specialty card. The funny thing is, for administrator license, it is not required to have any electrical experience at all. Just test fee and 8 hours of test...

Control Room Operator here as well!! 600 MW gas-fired plant (see FrankTheSpank's thread about nukeworker.com pictures), but we ceased burning backup F.O. out here about four years ago. Previous utility where I worked had F.O. as a backup for our combined-cycle units. Could barely keep trucks coming quick enough (that was with two 1 million gallon tanks). Was a Control Room Operator there for a 374 MW gas plant.

We can run like 9 days out of the year on F.O. here but we have ran on F.O. for about 30 minutes since we began operation back in July(COD)

At the first company, we bought all of our gas, so we were at the mercy of our contractors. We could burn extended periods on F.O., but we literally had tankers rolling in and unloading fuel around the clock (it was a base load plant). We have quite a bit of coal generation where I am now as well as our own gas subsidiary, so it's not as big of an issue to stay online during low load demand periods like in the winter. Last year it was costing us something like $40 a megawatt hour to produce electricity in our gas plants versus about $8.50 a megawatt hour in the dirt burners.

Timly topic. I have a question for you guys. Just had an addition put on my house which included a new kitchen. I had a subpanel put in for the new part of the house. The problem is the outlet for the trash compactor does not work. Turned on all the brakers extcept one 40 amp. Nothing. Turn the 40 amp on it blows. Try a second time the main blows. The 40 amp breaker says it is for the stove. The stove box is about 3 ft from the compactor outlet. Use an ohm meter to check the plug. Seams like nothing is crossed. Would the compactor plug be jumped off the stove? There is also a 220 box on the out side of the wall here. The 220 comes from the main panel. It is for future expansion. Anyone have an idea what is wrong? The electrical contractor quite on the contactor. I am trying to fix this problem so I can finish the kitchen. The contractor is trying to find a new electrial guy.
