    I see an additional 600-800 amp service with a separate meter in the left of the photo. The 10 point meter pan for the CT cabinet is to the right of the CT cabinet.

    You really need a photo with the cover off of the end box to confirm what's actually there. It appears that there are actually 3 services, the ~600-800 one to the left with it's own meter, the 400 amp(?) CT service and the ~200 amp to the right with it's own meter. Each one is spliced and fed from the end box therefore the CT cabinet is not feeding all of the service disconnects.

    Looks that way to me as well. 1 CT meter and 2 direct meters. Kind of a scary looking room.

    This service is a mess but there isn't supposed to be an EGC on the line side of the service disconnects. The metal component should be bonded to the neutral.

    Rob, if I understood that right, that means that this is part of service and is not after the meters... which is where we ground, first disconnect after the meter... or is it Fuse or Breaker after the meter...lol
