I have an upcoming service change on a duplex. These pics of the existing service show a somewhat unusual arrangement. Indeed, I'm not sure what chncges, if any, I will make to the general layout.

Finally, see how the panels are set into a niche in the wall. The service mast is inside the wall.

I like the clearance for the service drop over the roof.
