Service Entrance Clearance

OK, so the service cable should be no closer than within 3 feet of the bottom, sides and front. What about above a window?


No issues. You can read NEC 230.9 for more info.

As Jim mentioned here’s that section. Notice that the requirement is not for jacketed cables.

It’s essentially a “conduit” James. Not the same as open or individual conductors.

lol…I get A LOT of calls about things like this. I agree Jim, Robert and my buddy Pope"Man" are 100% correct. Not an issue. However, I would like to see another strap on that SE next to the meter socket…:wink:
