I got one of my first commercial service changes this week.
I'm trying to figure out hoe to take the riser higher.

This runs over a dead end alley. What can I strap/secure the riser to? I believe high req is 22ft.

Any thoughts?

Can't tell from the picture. Here we would have offset past that gutter? drip edge? and go high enough to get clearance. Then guy off from 2 separate points.
If that is a drip edge, maybe you could use deep strut and get enough clearance.

If this were me, I'd ask the inspector what he would expect to see. Maybe some angle iron to support the conduit attached to the building?

We would stack out the riser a few inches with some double stack strut and possible an offset nipple or 2 at the meter can.

Offset the riser and attach a strut rack to the building side and extend up past roof line 5 -6 foot or as required.

The Poco and AHJ would have us install guy onto the IMC riser and the rack.

I don't remember exactly but. I think we usually need 18' foot foot for truck traffic at the lowest point.
