Greg:
PSE&G will provide meter pans 'free' upon presentation of a valid municipal permit (no copies). 100 to 320/400 single phase, and 200 amp, 3 phase.

They will throw in a drop hook, eye hook & fish plates, and on a good day, perhaps an insulator upon request.

Multi-meter (2 sockets are also available.
CT meter pans are PSE&G supplied only. CT cabinets are customer supplied.

JCP&L does not supply any resi equipment, only 3 phase CT meter pans. All customer purchased equipment must be on their approved list.

BTW, a PSE&G subsidiary recently aquired control of LIPA

The thing that always amazed me was how sloppy the FPL contractors were (watching them at my wife's place 2004-6). There was always a lot of the 4/0 conductor in the dumpster after a lateral install. In one case I saw over 50 feet. They just spooled off a bunch, built the pipe as they go with the wire in it and cut off the excess.
It went real fast that way but material was certainly wasted.
In those days material was wasted a lot anyway. Time was money.
I bet they run a tighter ship now and the scrappers would be raiding those dumpsters every night.

I've seen this on really old services before. 1920's-30's. In California, the POCO is responsible for the drop up to the riser conductors and they'd fix this free of charge.
