What type of wire for service mast
I'm finishing up my new 200A overhead service and I just have to build the new mast before I schedule my disconnect/inspection. I'd like to run individual conductors up my service mast and am wondering what type of wire to run. I had planned to run 3 THHN 4/0 Al conductors up the mast, but they didn't have any at the local Lowes. The guy in the electrical department said that I could just use their 4/0 USE individual conductors, but I don't know if USE can be used this way (NEC 338.12(B)(2) seems to say that it can not, but I could be misreading it). Can I use the USE conductors, or do I need to get another kind, like THHN or THWN? Thanks.
