The receptacles on the temporary must have a weathershield mounted over the box. If installing a grounding electrode conductor to a made electrode the maximum grounding electrode conductor size required is a 6 awg copper conductor NEC Article Some Utility companies will furnish that meter base for your temporary. You can identify a self-grounding receptacle by the spring clip mounted at the yoke, to insure an adequate contact nwc2002 the box.
I will attempt to approach the majority of your choices. If you opt for the 5′ deep pole set without braces, then add 2′ to the pole as described making the total pole hec2002 for the 5′ deep pole set option of approximately 18′. Keep nec20002 mind that if the conduit is installed below the height of the meterbase chances are that conduit will be considered as subject to physical damage requiring heavy wall conduit approved for use where subject to physical damage.
To view an example of the inside wiring of a main service rated panel or disconnect you may view by clicking on the picture icon to the left. B and the metal box if the box is surface mounted Neec2002 Article If there are four, or more appliances, on list of fastened-in-place appliances, enter at 75 percent of the total sum of appliances va. B [listing and labeling requirements. Enter clothes dryer at va. You can usually resolve this offset condition where the holes don’ t line up, by using an offset nipple.
All volt rated receptacles rated in amps 15, 20, or 30 that are installed on a temporary service pole or installed for use as temporary wiring must be GFCI protected NEC Article The NEC states that you must install a strap near each end of the conduit. Your overcurrent device [breaker box or fuse box] can be of an array of sizes, each size creating new requirements.
An example of a volt receptacle that must be GFI protected or provided with documented records of its nfc2002 may be viewed by clicking on the picture icon to the left. Nec200 this application you must use a conductor approved for neec2002 wet location, and approved as a service conductor [with a “W” in it’s identification and sunlight resistant] NEC Article If only one dryer is used.

For small appliance branch circuits for the dwelling required. If you are using aluminum wiring you must use anti-oxidation inhibitor [Nolox] at each connection of that aluminum conductor.
Then refer to nec article If the any box is metal, you must bond the metal box to the grounding conductor. The previous rules applies if the box is with equipment grounding such as the box connected by an equipment grounding conductor to a green grounding screw NEC Article All boxes on an overhead temporary service pole will be considered exposed to wet location.
D 10 awg or smaller conductors. Lighting load 3 va. Checking with the NEC Table X outside dimensions of your buildings on that service required.
If the conductors are used as a feeder for a residential setting nec202 you may disregard the temperature limitations and use the NEC Table D Please leave approximately 3′ sticking out beyond the weatherhead allowing enough conductor length that the Power Company may have enough to work with during their connection to your service entrance conductors.
You must supply a set of feeders approved for nce2002 wet location, and sized by the maximum amp rating of the main disconnect s used on the pole and able to reach at least 3′ past the weatherhead into free air for the Utility Company’ s connection.
Now refer to nec chart With the above considerations in mind your minimum neutral service conductor must be size no smaller than the 18, volt amps. You must support the pipe with straps. The conduit size must be sized meeting the requirements of NEC Appendix C using the conduit type you plan to use enc2002 to the conductor size and type of insulation on those conductors. You must then run the grounding electrode conductor up the pole to the service 100.

Find the largest motor involved, and multiply that motor’s full load current flc by 25 percent, and enter that figure. If the branch circuit is direct connected, at the end of line, without any receptacle installed on that circuit, then no GFCI protective device is required.
We must then make one more comparison to ensure our calculated neutral service rated conductor size in wire gauge is not smaller than the minimum grounding electrode conductor size as required in NEC Article Enter Your Zip Code: The minimum size wire to your receptacles, through your offset nipple, from your over-current device [breaker or fuse], jec2002 14 awg using a 15 amp maximum size overcurrent device.
The total of all of the above calculations, with the exceptions of the first 3 steps, will give you the total va.

This is true regardless of the temperature rating nec2002 the insulation of that conductor. Any form of receptacle exposed to the weather must be nc2002 a weather shield. A using a normal receptacle mounting yoke. Please keep in mind, that although you are working with a “temporary”, NEC Article must still apply as a permanent service, and be treated as such.
Some Utility companies will even furnish the entire temporary and electricity for one set fee. Final Calculation as Follows: We must size our grounding electrode conductor by NEC Table Please contact you local AHJ [Electrical Inspector] to confirm that you are allowed to use this table in your local area.
