My guess is that your neutral connects to the hexagonal lug at the left of your white arrow, leaving the other point for the POCO.

I think your hots are correctly labeled, but the white should go to the lug to the left of where your white arrow is.

The POCO will probably use crimp connectors that bolt down where your white arrow is.

You may have to supply the lugs for the power company....

Yep I know few POCO will ask the customer to provide the lugs but most case the POCO will have them in thier truck unless got a oddball size there.

The other thing this part will get your attetion is the Belleviue washer ( SP ) ya denfinely need a toqure wrench on that one.

Merci,
Marc

Here we have to have all our lugs crimped on and connected before inspection.

We are required to use by-pass handles in all residential meters...
