Meter box wiring

I am connecting my own meter box and running the wire to the panel box and have one question. Which of two lugs do I attach my feed too and which are for the power company? See picture of the box. I am thinking the two at the bottom, but would like confirmation.

Top = Power Co. Bottom Lugs = You

"That didn't hurt": I don't know about you're area, but around here if there were not a State Licensed Electrician's tag in that meter can, and duly signed, the Power Company would not make their connection. Thanks, David

Before you install that that meter can, go and look at a meter main. I wish I had, before I did mine a few years ago. I am considering changing mine from the type you have to the meter main type. Just a little advice.
