old 100 amp electrical service

Old Weather Head

This is an old electrical weather head. This is where the electric company's (PECO) responsibly stops and the home owner's starts. The weather head is designed to keep water from getting inside of the jacket of this 100 amp service entrance. Without a weather head the cable can act like a pipe sending water directly into your home.

On the left is the old service equipment which was made up of a meter socket and 3 different fuse boxes. This electrical service was well past dangerous. It is a good thing that it is getting updated. On the right there is on new circuit breaker box. It has a copper bus and spaces for 30 new breakers.
