Default Service Entrance

I am doing over a small roof at my camp, about 15 square. The service entrance enters the house on the roof with a 2 and a half inch pipe. The only problem I am running into is, I cannot place a roof boot around this because there is no way I could put it over the wires and down onto the pipe. In other words I am looking for a way to somehow put a roof boot on it or place a storm collar of somesort. Thank you in advance. Tom.

This is the most secure thing around but you still need to caulk or otherwise seal the top

This is the only source I know of.
I have seen small storm collars with a slip-fit join on one side. It opens up to go around the pipe and slips back together at the opening. Those should be available at a local plumbing or roofing supply house.
There are also many fabric wrap then brush on systems available but they can't possibly be as durable as metals.
Good luck!
Whatever you do, post a pic and let us see what you come up with
