What are the rules for a heavy up, between the pole and the meter.


What are the rules for a heavy up, between the pole and the meter.
Is there not some standard correlation between the size of the wires from the pole transformer to the meter; as well as from the meter to the main panel; and the size of the main panel itself.

What size wire would you like them to run? They have their own rules.

Pole to building - NOT your responsibility or concern. They are owned by the POCO and they follow their own rules regarding them. You can ask that they be replaced, but they are NOT compelled to oblige.

Splices down to meter and then to the panel - Typically the owner's/installer's responsibility. Whatever rules your area follows. Typically the NEC or some state code.
