Thanks.That's your average farmhouse basement around WNY. Offer them a price on the service upgrade and a price to separate (rewire) circuits after the service is released to Poco by the AHJ. Neither the Poco or AHJ will give two shits about the branch circuits on this permit, just the service entrance.
If you're really that concerned, contact Nat grid and ask the project planner they assign where they want the riser and meter. Then contact AHJ to ask about the interior sub location. Build it how they want it. I can tell you right now I'd do a riser and meter main 3' to the right of that window, and feed the basement sub with SER. There's more than enough slack in the branch circuit wiring to relocate the interior panel a few feet to the right if you needed to.
Despite the older home and stone basement, this should be a routine job.
Disagree. I generally don't work in houses with aluminum branch circuits, either. Same reason.LOL might as well just quit now
