    I inspected a temp. power pole at a commercial site. The equipment is rated at 10,000 amps. The Edison AIC is 42,000 amps. I asked for equipment rated at 42,000 amps. Both the contractor and Edison state that they have never heard of such a thing for a temp. power pole. According to them the issue is a non-issue because of the temporary nature of the installation. It might be there for up to a year and hopefully less than that.

    It is actually not a first for Edison as I have been on this road in the past. It's the first time that these Edison planners have encountered it.

    What do you think about that?
