What Is A Meter Base?
The meter base is where the power comes in from the power company and the meter goes into. The meter is read on a monthly basis to determine electrical usage for the previous month. Meter bases have wires and lugs where the wires attach. These lugs over years can become loose and burn up; wires can be overloaded and burn up. Once this happens our technicians at Barney’s Electric will take out a city permit and replace the meter and any other damages and then it gets inspected by the city to get power restored.
Meter Bases generally do not have to be replaced very often, but they do on occasion. Below you will find reasons why a meter base would have to be replaced.
Most importantly, like any other electrical components, safety is the number one concern. If you are concerned about the safety of your meter base, or have any questions, please contact Barney’s Electric at 972-771-9464. For your convenience, you may also request services from this site.
