Question DetailsAsked on 7/10/2013

what would be a rough estimate to have an electrical service mast raised to code (10') and an updated panel cost?

bought a house is in Sacramento ca, built 1965, there was an added lean-to that requires the service mast to be raised. lean-to demo would be out of my budge for the moment (it is on my to do list).

Mast raising probably about $300-450 - may have to be done in three parts - power company disconnect service line, electrician install new mast and feed cable (because it has to be longer than it is now, and cannot be spliced) and move weatherhead to top of it, then utility reconnect power. In other jurisdictions, utilities let electricians do this type of disconnect/reconnect.

The utility company may also bid on the entire job for you, particularly if the feed goes straight from mast down to meter.
