The electrical meter is located on the exterior of a home. Working with the electrical panel, it is the “other half” of the electrical system.
In addition to the meter, there are other elements of the electrical system located outside the home. Any of these could need to be repaired or replaced in order to meet code requirements or the energy demands of your household. These could include:
- meter base (including new 2015 Ameren MO requirements)
- entrance cable
- riser cable
- grounding system
Below are before/after depictions of an electrical meter replacement we completed in Richmond Heights.
To meet requirements, the old style ring meter base was replaced with a new bypass meter. The frayed entrance and riser cables were replaced with new ones. These cables were then secured to the building and placed in protective PVC casing, where appropriate.
