Service drop tapping

Can you tap on the overhead service drop conductors for a secondary new electrical panel on a Apartment building?

Thank you in advance.

depends on the supplier .They do it frequently in some areas

Thank you Roy.

Yes, as long as its treated as a new service (ie after he tap a meter and disconnect is present) and the power company is aware of it.

The licensed electrical contractor will open a permit and request a connection from the supplier.
