    Are you hooking up a hot tub or Generator transfer switch?

    Last question do the service entrance ground wire & the ground wire from inside connect always in the middle of the meter box?
    Without seeing the grounded and grounding connectors up close I can not say.

    That I understand. But without a bigger picture. . . .
    Bypassing a meter base is illegal.
    Per the National Electrical code.

    The center bar is the neutral/ground

    I don't know what all that means.

    I'm trying to connect it legally the right way. I don't know what that other stuff means. So the neutral the middle is for the ground wire? I want to connect the proper way with no crime intended at all.

    The meter box comes with the handle lever inside. It's Illinois new law. It has the bypass switch inside.

    Yes, ground/neutral in the middle. The two outside connections are 120 VAC each, (so you can hook things like a 220/240 VAC Dryer, Stove, etc.).
