Dangerous Electric Service

Electric service drops from a power pole to a home should be at least 10 ft. above the ground or 12 ft. above a driveway. The one in this photo is over the ground but just inches away from the driveway. The pole you see propped against the service drop is a 10 ft pole. Obviously this service is way too low.

Carrying any kind of aluminum ladder anywhere near this line could be disastrous. A master electrician will have to coordinate with the power company to disconnect the power so he can raise the mast and weather head high enough so that the lowest part of the service, including the drip loop, is a minimum of 10 ft. above the ground.

Thanks
