Unnecessary expense, problems and liability for the homeowne. Of course I guess the local electricians don't care for it.
Most places say that the utilities responsibility ends at the weather-head.
Most places? or just where you are? It would be interesting to see a list of POCO's and states requirements. From what I've seen so far it's the North East that the utilities stick the customer with that expense and liability.
Electricity is no different then cable or phone that deliver their product "to the customers house" and provide the interface for the customer to connect to.
The POCO here providing the service to the meter base is consistent with acceptable provider service.
