Is there a risk to applying oversized GreyEEL?

There are a few factors to consider when deciding to use the incorrect size of GreyEEL:
  • The weight of oversized GreyEEL could cause smaller diameter conductors to bend or deform when configured without tension. #4 copper exiting a pole-top transformer bushing, for instance.
  • The added weight could also introduce unnecessary mechanical stress to components.
  • Oversized GreyEEL will not have the advantage of friction to maintain it’s intended position.
