The only thing is it is in a smaller space down south where it’s warm or I’d say it was for baseboard heat

What about growing his own food? Would justify the lights and plumbing. Growing your own food and living off grid might go hand in hand.

Or you do a lot of welding, welding requires quite a bit of power.

Here is what i did. I told my guy a have 15 large fishtanks. I enjoy fish and each tank needs a heater for water and air for the bubbler for fish to breath and a water filter pump. Now add up 15 fish tanks. Also i like lizards and they need heat stones and heat lights. I used to breed african ciclids in my apartment and i had 2 aquatic turtles. Thats a whole lot of power.

Upgrading grading house… Getting new appliances and what not with fish tanks or reptile tanks… Here in California it’s all about solar power upgrades… Even the schools have solar power units

If you tell them it’s medical equipment, they cannot ask what it is.
If they get nosey, tell them it’s a surplus MRI for your mother-in-law.

I had a “hemp farmer” friend that turned a old barn into a grow room and when he hooked it up to electricity he told the electrician that he was welding flat beds for toyota pickups.

Tell them you are a welder and want to do some jobs from home! Or say you are putting a garage in and you are a mechanic and need it for a hoist. That’s what I did had them run a piggy back panel into the garage so then I have a separate panel in the garage.

Being an electrician… there’s no need for small talk, you’re thinking too much. Just tell him what lines and amperages you need and disappear
