In order to utilize this tool you must provide information regarding the type of electrical equipment, and the location of the equipment installation ("above grade" or "grade level and below") and the jobsite address.  Address information can be as general as State or Province, or as specific as Latitude/Longitude. The more specific  the location the more accurate the information we can supply.
