I am bring new power into a new building site. The power company requires that I install a meter pedestal with a disconnect. I can do this myself or hire an electrician.
Since there is no live power until the meter pedestal is installed and the power company hooks it up, and since there is next to no wiring involved, I think I should be able to do this myself.
Basically it is setting a post, attaching the box, attaching a conduit in which the power company will run the incoming power and driving two ground rods.
The question is, I am supposed to have a disconnect. Now the meter box has eight slots for breakers and has one 200 amp breaker installed all ready. It seem to me the 200 amp breaker is the disconnect. YES?
