SERVICE PROBLEM: I have a NEW customer, with a existing service repair, 4 - 100 Amp Meters, with a 100 Riser for Meters 1&2 and another 100 Amp riser for meters 3&4. The Town Required the Past Lic. Electrician to install ( 4 ) 100 Amp Disconnects Below Each Meter. QUESTION: is the riser existing permitted to stay, even when the Disconnects & panels were installed to 100 Amps ? I feel a 2/0 Size is required. And how did the utility approve & lock the meters, and the owner got a Electrical CO for this ???
Also, I may add... All ( 4 ) 100 Amp Disconnects are Grounded to a # 6 Awg, together. & there was NO Bonding found in any meter or disconnect to protect the EMT conduit sleves, and NO Cill plates used. A MESS !!!
QUESTION: After this service Upgrade & repair was done by others, Done Wrong. What would you do ? Rip it all down & start over, or repair the existing mess left by another LICENSED Electrician...
