taking it a step further......
Many DIY'ers here have installed thier own service entrance from peak or pole.
The utility wil slap on a 'customer owned' sticker , check the GEC's and fire it up.
There is no 'inspection' per se'....
I'll show up, view obvious time bombs, and be in the position of explaining how wrong
or dangerous the installation is.
The common rebuttal being that the poco
( nec challenged) had hooked it up, thus it is ok.
.....the poco rep may have HANDED THE CUSTOMER THE DIAGRAM PICTORAL of the required install, which is simply a picture
inclusive of NO nec details...
