1309.08 SERVICE CONNECTIONS.
No person, firm or corporation or any public or private utility corporation engaged in the distribution or sale of electrical energy shall connect any distribution system, or any live supply or service conductors from such distribution system, to any electrical equipment in, on or about a building, or cause to allow any such connection to be made, until the Electrical Safety Inspector has inspected such electrical equipment and has authorized such connections to be made thereto. After installing the service and meter, it shall be the duty of such person, public or private utility corporation to place an approved seal upon the service switch in such a manner as to prevent electrical current entering the distribution system of the building and no such seal shall be removed or broken except by authority of the Electrical Safety Inspector. Whenever the Electrical Safety Inspector finds any electrical distribution system, or any live supply of service conductor therefrom, to have been connected to any electrical equipment in, on or about any building, without authority therefore, as herein required, the Electrical Safety Inspector shall be authorized and empowered to cause such system or conductor to be disconnected from such electrical equipment or to order and require the same to be disconnected by the person owning or operating such distribution system.
