A friend of mine is renovating his new house before he moves in.
He had a guy upgrade his service to 200amp. The guy did a great job relocating the breaker box in the basement, great job wiring inside the house. When I looked at the new drop, though, the questions began.

He got a permit. So somehow this is code, I guess.
He has extended the new drop from the electric company with three red wires which look WAY undersized to carry the load of the entire house.
Can somebody explain this to me?

Also note the use of the gutter to hold up the wires. At the very least that's odd.
