Thanks. That must be it.

Seems very flexible and rubber like. Not at all like that cloth wire in the nob and tube. I guess I'll find out when I remove it.

Not sure where to post but what is this?

Found this in the ceiling in the closet.

I got a quote for $2880! and they say the conduit would be 80amps max.

Sure wish I’d know I would have an electric car when I built the garage. :)

The poles are at the street, the one at the back is in front of the other house but I don’t see why you would not go underground at the street. If you had to put another pole I don’t think anyone...

No, when I asked them about it they said they would go underground at the pole then down the street and into my backyard. Also, there is a pole across the street at the front of the house that would...
