    It would be hard to cut out around the already installed cans. Even if you get close the cans might be damaged from the cut.
    I say it would be better to drop the cans and unwire them. Then you cut...

    No, I was just pointing out the only reason we had to power up one outlet. Thought perhaps the OP might have had something similar and confused it with a requirement. We don't have to do a "service...

    I have never heard of that requirement just for replacing a meter.
    Here, we would have to add battery powered smokes if none existed.
    Might have to re-do the GES but that would be all. I think your...

    That would be correct if under the 2014 and later. We are under the 2008 (for now) and that's what I was referencing.

    You need to use conduit. Most likely PVC because all that I've ever done glued right on to the tail of the light housing. Mine required 1-1/2" extended out about a foot then reduced to 3/4" or 1".

    Yep, I thought about that. I guess I'll tell the HO to "uncover" the area again so I can check/repair the area where the nail went through.

    I never went back since the HO said everything was working. I wonder if I should go and megger test the switch legs? Not much I could do if they are close to not passing though.

    What are you upgrading? Are you going from 150A to 200A?
    If you are, all you do is run new-larger wire from the meter to the panel/disconnect. You don't splice anything.
