The Service Point
Sumter EMC's service drop connects to the customer's wiring at the service point. The following drawings show examples for overhead as well as underground services. The customer’s electrician is responsible for all wiring from the service point through the rest of the building. Construction methods and materials may vary from those depicted below.
Sumter EMC's guide drawings for service entrance equipment (see links below) provide helpful information for constructing services in conformity with the requirements of the NEC and other applicable codes. These drawings do not, however, provide all the information required for proper design and construction of service equipment. Consult with a licensed electrician to be sure your plans meet all applicable codes.
