Just twist 2 #10s together for your neutral, same ampacity as the 1/0 conductors.



View on that service change wasn't too bad.

A couple of those conductors look small, the connectors just floating in air looks odd to me. The fasteners also look small, I would have asked or fender washers and larger diameter screws or bolts. Those look like two tapcons and it appears the box is at least the depth of shallow unistrut off the wall.

Sometype of common grounnd buss would have been an improvement over all the individual lugs.

The smaller pvc at the base looks out of place.

The rough cement finish aroud the larger pvc could hold water and cause freeze spalling.
