Let me start by saying I appreciate any information. Hopefully, Philly is not all that different from anywhere else, but Ideally Philadelphia specific info would be preferred.
I'm remodeling a Philadelphia row home, and by remodeling, I mean the only thing original is the brick. All permits are in place and I have a licensed contractor, but I am doing all the electrical I've done a lot of electrical work but I've never had to deal with getting power restored.
At this point all the wiring is done; receptacles are installed; the panel will be wired tomorrow. The panel is connected to an empty meter socket which has a 4/0 service line running out to the service head. There is no physical connection to the house. The previous 100A lines were cut at the service drop before I owned the home. The socket and panel are new and there was no meter on the premises.
Here is where I'm at a bit of a loss for what to do next. What does the inspector expect to see completed before signing off on the electrical? Should the service drop already be connected? Should there be a meter on-site?
