Installing Meter Panel on Wall With Exterior Foam Insulation
We are installing a new meter main panel on the house and am wondering the best practice for doing this with 3” of exterior foam insulation.
I’ve got zip sheathing, 3” of polyiso, 3/4” rainscreen, siding. It’s a meter main combo box with underground service. Has one service wire to an interior 200a panel that goes through the back.
I’m thinking I can just install it directly to the zip sheathing and build a channel under it for the conduit. Once the exterior foam and siding are installed it will be recessed into the wall almost flush with the siding. I’ll still have interior insulation in that location as well.
Thanks in advance
