You must use the 60 degree column found in NEC Table We must then make one more comparison to ensure our calculated neutral service rated conductor size in wire gauge is not smaller nc2002 the minimum grounding electrode conductor size as required in NEC Article Enter Your Zip Code: An example of an overhead meter base showing line [power into meter base] and load [power out of meter base to your panel] may be viewed by clicking on the picture icon to the left.

If your service panel main over-current device size is amps in a residential setting, you must use a feeder rated no less than a amp rated conductor, from the transformer, through to the main lugs of the service panel, or the lug of your main over-current device depending on the service rated panel style that you plan to use.
Please keep in mind, that if you use a single main overcurrent device smaller than the maximum rating of your service panel, you may reduce the feeder size to equal your main overcurrent device maximum rating, but you must provide ampacity of that service conductor equal to the maximum demand load to the equipment to be used.
You must use the 75 degree column found in NEC Table If you use a type service panel with only two circuits in the box, you must use a minimum rating of 30 amps, weatherproof service rated panel.
