The owner was upset when the POCO removed the meter and disconnected his power!

It is interesting that the meter socket enclosure did not rust away too. It does not appear to be made of PVC. Is it possible that the service disconnect was not in a weather proof enclosure, and therefore not designed to with-stand corrosion? I would also be upset if this was on my property!

You'd think that even the daftest of people would realize that this had gotten so bad it needed replacement.

Honestly, from a safety stand point, the POCO should have done it years ago I'd say!
