Panel upgrade will come at a later date. This was just to get them up and running. One phase was down, I can't believe the utility left them on after seeing that weatherhead. Old style meter that will be replaced by Poco eventually. * pics were taken before I put duct seal on the mud connector *

I've changed a few services with that old A-base meter. On all of them I was able to coordinate with the PoCo wiring inspector to come out and switch the old meter for a new one while I was doing the service change. This way I didn't have to wire up the adapter.

The POCO was probably hoping they could limp through the night with it the way it was so they would have heat.

Looks good but I am also surprised the POCO don't get you a new meter so they don't have to change that abortion out later.

They gotta call the poco for a new meter. No real
Abortion to change out. Just an adaptor plate that is plugged into meter socket.

Why not do it right and use silicone? Duct seal is not listed or rated for outdoor use and is not sunlight resistant.

I never heard of that, I'll have to look into it. Thanks.

It might just be our local code but we have to use sch 80, EMT, or rigid. Rigid for the mast shot so poco can use it as support.
Seems like Nebraska has things right. I don't think they should even allow PVC for service conductors. You going to the game?
