|Publication Date:||6 December 2017|
This recommended practice explores commercial, institutional, and industrial design of electrical services, interconnecting with a utility distribution or transmission system. Close coordination between the facility electrical designer and the serving utility are critical for a successful service connection. This recommended practice considers the electrical system information needed by the designer concerning the utility's system characteristics and the electrical load information needed by the utility to design a satisfactory electrical interface between the serving utility and the premise electrical distribution system. It describes various ways to take power from the serving utility. It also covers the specific requirements for utility metering on service entrance equipment, as well as service equipment rooms, vaults, and pads.
