Hmmmmm … well lets see now.
If it's one set of #6 Cu service feeders (3-#6) then the conductors would limit the service capacity to 60A.
If its two sets of #6 Cu (6-#6) service feeders (parallel conductors), then the MD would limit the service capacity to 100A.
It could be taken that it's a standard 3-wire service, since there is no mention of parallel conductors and current model codes would usually limit parallel conductors to #1/0 and larger. Then again current codes would not allow anything less than a 100A service with #4 Cu for a typical residence ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
