Asking this type of question usually means you aren't ready to do this yourself. If you get any detailed "how to do it" answer here, you might attempt to do something you shouldn't be doing, and that may cost someone a shock, a home fire, or their life. What is a meter pole? A power pole is used largely when you're running electricity to a mobile home. You buy a telephone pole, stick it in the ground and attach the meter base to it. Are there really any height maximums for service heads, conduit or otherwise? There are maximum heights for meters and MINIMUM heights for conductor clearances over certain areas and obstructions.

Contact your utility company and the authority having jurisdiction to get answers about specifics in your area. <><><> As far as I know there is no maximum limit, There is a minimum distance from driveways, lawns, and buildings. If this question concerns an installation in the USA, consult the NEC. (USA's 'National Electrical Code'.) <><><> From the service drop pole to the power pole the triplex feeders can not be any lower than 5 meters over a roadway.


As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

: If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power

at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND

always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes

(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)

to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. ;
