Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) was one of the most popular manufacturers of electrical panel boxes in North America from the
1950’s to the 1980’s. Millions of their panels were installed in homes across the country. Over time, electricians and home inspectors
found Federal Pacific Electric panels failed to provide proper protection to homeowners and their families. The panels can appear to work
fine for years, but after one overcurrent or short circuit, they can overheat and become fire hazards.
