That's kind of a general statement. A box can have a lot of visual, "what-seems-to-be grounding", in it but it does not mean the grounding is done properly to provide the proper safety factors for both the system and personnel.Looks OK with plenty of bonding/grounding going on... just more than seen in older boxes...
Look at the photo of the meter. You will see they ran the earth ground under the siding and attached it to the masthead conduit above the meter by the looks of it..
I am still not comfortable with seeing the feed to this so called main panel with 4 conductors coming directly from the meter.
What does the printing on this four conductor feed sheathing say? Don't look on the individual wires but on the cable sheathing for this printing.
I also see a green conductor on the top right side bar. Is this the ground wire going to the ground rod? If not where is this ground wire coming from/going to?

Looks like you or the power company need a test meter to check the voltage. Maybe you have a partial short or other power drain somewheres, failing power company transformer, or there are too many customers on one transformer.I dimmed them some, turned on the vac and they went out. I turned off the vac and they just came on with a blue glow.
I assume this is a 120 volt vacuum... what is the HP / amperage rating? Guess should have asked that first...When I have a shop vac connected to a newly installed circuit and turn it on, it will dim the lights in the house, which are on an old separate existing circuit.
