I just finished the electrical panel for a moly and I oversized all the cables. Drawing 295 amps all night, the cables , all 350 MCM were stone cold.

Fans, think fans. We installed one right on the screen of the transformer and simply put two blowers on the top of the furnace. Charlie did the heat transfer calcs and found it would have less than a 1 percent loss up there.

So, we're one percenters.
