I wouldn't think that would work, you'll be slipping the coupling on a curved piece not a straight piece.

You could hammer a square peg into a round hole with a big enough hammer.

And up there they only have snow, not rain. So they don't have to worry about the riser being sealed.

Hydro one doesn't even install a weatherhead on PVC conduit runs... after many years the conduit will fill with water... That's what the drain holes are for in the meterbases.
