Test your knowledge of electrical equipment near or around the house! 

This is the link between the external wires coming from the power lines and the internal electrical wires of the home’s electrical system. What is it?

Electrical panel

Answer: The correct answer is the electrical service panel! The service panel distributes electricity to switches, outlets and appliances. This is where you can restore the flow to an overloaded circuit or shut down the power to the circuit. If your electricity short circuits or an overload shuts down power, your service panel is where you will go to restore the flow.
