Mounting new load center to concrete block wall.
The inspector stopped by and did the inspection today. It passed, so now I'm ready for the POCO. He said everything looked good. THe only small technicality was that I had attached the ground wire to the rod on the wrong side of the clamp. He said it needed to be on the outside instead of the inside do to potential for cutting the copper by over tightening. No big deal though. I'm all set to go now.
I forget who the original poster was on this thread that told me I couldn't enter the back of the panel with 4/0 Aluminum due to height restrictions. So instead I used 2/0 cu. He said I still could've used the 4/0 al as long at it was individual conductor. Oh well, the 2/0 cu was tough enough to wrangle. So I'm glad I didn't attempt the 4/0 AL.
I'm not an electrician so I"m not really sure what you mean by GEC being in the box. I assume you are talking about the grounding lugs that attach to the nuetral. The bottom half of the meter socket will be servicable by me. It has a panel that can be removed to access the 4 space breaker and 200A main. The cover to the meter will be locked and not serviceable by me. SO maybe that clears up your questions. The box is from a company called Midwest.
