overhead Teck cable entry
I lost the power entry to my cottage last week - several trees conspired to down the wire and shatter the conduit from the top to the meter base. Hydro clipped the wires at the cap so they are not reusable - too short for the drip loop (not the 1st time the wires have found themselves downed and cut). The entry goes around a corner - lands on one face of the building and hits the meter on an adjoining face - only about 6' horizontal difference, but getting the conductors through the el is a chore.
I would like to replace the conductor/conduit combination with Teck cable but cannot find any information on what to do at the top or whether fittings for a standard meter base are available for 3/3 Teck cable. Can anyone offer advise?
