Took this on 7/26/06. Not the worst I've seen ... but "interesting". Notice the creative custom trough cover.

Is it OK to have gas meter near that service entrace? I think I'd see a big fireball when the service faulted. [Linked Image]

How and where do you get grounding for each service in this menagerie?

(O/T) Or how you get the gas meter installed? I hear those things can weigh quite a bit.

Just a slight workspace violation with the metercan on the right side wall of the alcove.... [Linked Image] This and the creative feed going to the 2 rightmost meters would never fly here, along with either that door is really short, or that top meter is wayyy above the 6'6" rule we have here..

BTW, while its brought up, why is the gas meter 8' in the air???

It does look rather "hack-like". [Linked Image]

May have had a plumber electrician here [Linked Image]

Gasmeter is a little close near potential ignition source.


The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.

Isn't there supposed to be a master disconnect if there's more than 6 meters? ANd shouldn't there be, if it was only 6 meters, disconnects for each service? I'm assuming that the power source is coming in from below.

My first reaction was the proximity of the gas meter as well. I find it hard to believe that the building inspector and/or fire marshall is allowing this to remain as is. Can you say "Building Codes?" Great picture!
