4 Wire To Meter??


Found a wonderful deal on a 4/0 4 wire, but was wondering if I could take that to the meter? Would i have to connect the bare and grounding rod under the same terminal?

You simply leave the one conductor capped off, and not connected.

Whats this awesome deal?! I think 3.50/ft is what I sell it for, but 3 wire is about 2.80.....if you can get it under 2.80 then best of luck.

4 wire 4/0 is a pain to work with and looks like crap.......
