do you have power? if so I'd say it's fine. I'm no electrician tho. can't be any worse than the electric co. putting too small of line from the post to our building, resulting in an overload and the line bursting into flames igniting a tree on fire.

Im going to say in the first pic the space between the boxes needs to be more and the second pic they need it to be higher

Also you should have doors on both of them:tonka:

The first thing that comes to mind is the red tape on the "c" phase should be orange and on the "B" or center phase noting a high leg.

Load side of first meter, "A" phase lugs looks dangerously close to arcing out between nuetral or "B" phase lugs.

Bending radius looks a little tight maybe. No bushing on third pipe on first meter. Is that gob of nuetral lugs just floating in there?

Makes my head hurt. Where are the current transformers in the CT cabinet?
Is that an LB buried half in the ground?

I'm just a pizza delivery guy so what do I know.
