The best advice that you have received is to contact your utility company. I work for a power company that operates in several differnent states. The rules for constructing a service, temporary or otherwise, vary from state to state due to differences in the regulatory agencies. Most will provide you with a detailed drawing showing you what they require from you. It will vary depending upon whether you want overhead or underground service, the size, distance from their existing lines, etc. Give them a call.South of Forty said:What does it take to put one up? I need to install one to get power out to my place to start my barn. Does it take any electrical skill?
