Service Panel Insurance Alert!
Did you know that some Bay Area homes built prior to 1980 contain electrical panels that have since been identified as a fire hazard?
It’s alarming, yet unfortunately true…If your home was built before 1980, we recommend that you check the brand name attached to your electrical panel. The two panel manufacturer names that pose a threat to your home and have since been discontinued are: Zinsco and Federal Pacific
The good news is that countless Zinsco and Federal Pacific panels have already been replaced through the years. Therefore, chances are, you’re in the clear! However, the bad news is that no agencies or homeowner advocate groups exist to formally spread the word; some individuals have discovered this unfortunate information the hard way – home fires.

Do I need to replace my Zinsco/Federal Pacific panel?
Zinsco panels can function properly for years; however, because they're so old, they're not equipped to handle the modern household's electrical demands. Worse, because these panels haven't been used in decades, if your home still features one, it's far beyond its intended lifespan.
Are Zinsco/Federal panels insurable?
It is important to note that several insurance companies in California now require the replacement of Federal Pacific and Zinsco panels before the home can be insured. PGE has been overwhelmed by the amount of applications.
