Another example of why a licensed electrician should be required to do anything more than changing a light bulb.

Thanks,
Kevin Duke

Thanks Kevin!

Does anyone still use meterpans like this in their areas for new installs?

Our Utility (Lipa - was Lilco) has required us to use 200A OH/UG meterpans w/manual bypass. We have to use the same for 100, 150, or 200A. I notice that our pans (or cans by you?) have the neutral connection out of the 'drip zone'(center) and on the side. I think that was a very good design change and was wondering if others had that feature?

This was an existing SE built with 200 amp (2/0 cu) line side and 100 amp SEC load side of the meter socket. The customer (I work for Alliant Energy in SE Iowa)wanted to upgrade to a 200 amp load panel and do it himself, since an electrician costs too much. Using a licensed electrician would have saved him money in the end. New meter sockets in our area now require horned bypass on residential, and a lever bypass on commercial.

In central Minnesota Xcel Energy (formerly Northern States Power) requires a manual bypass in all meter sockets (here it's a "socket") whether residential or commercial. In the generic single phase configuration, the neutral is directly under the hub location.

We still use those but we usually put a cover on them, and are required to bond the service Panel. The ones with c/o are reserved for commercial.
I have seen some schlocck installations but this has got to be a classicc.
