At least his aim was good, right through the middle! If he was acutually aiming for that spot, he would have missed it by a foot. We all know how that goes. Just like when the fish tape manages to hook everything EXCEPT what you are trying to hook!
100 amp services? I didn't think they were even done anymore. I haven't installed one in twenty years around here except for simple services feeding signs, etc. I haven't seen a residence, even an old one getting an upgrade getting less than 150. Maybe it's just where I am located. Am I missing something?

This looks like it was already taped up before the CATV guy even came along... The HO should thank him for the new service line The service on the left looks nice and new... I wonder why they didnt do both at the same time?

The new service is being installed to replace the damaged one. The old one was in poor condition with the outer jacket of the SE cable falling off. That is why it had the tape to hold it together. Most new services being installed are 200 amp. but, the Code only requires 100 for a dwelling. As long as they can save a buck they will do whatever is cheapest. I can only enforce the Code.

The green strut resists corrosion better... I wouldn't have a problem with the strut personally, if they had used the strut with smaller slots or even non slotted and made their own holes, thus a smaller piece on the wall.... The offset nipple and a 2 hole strap would suit me just as fine here...
