service lateral

Definition

Those underground electrical service conductors (wires) between the street main, including any risers at a pole or other structure or from transformers, and the point of initial connection with the service entrance conductors in a terminal box or other enclosure either inside or outside a wall of the building being served. In the absence of such a box or enclosure, the service lateral connects the street main and the point at which the service conductors enter into the building.
