The power company where I live will install one for $10.00 a month.
Where I'm at the meter box belongs to me, (I had to buy it) so I'll do what ever I want with it.
Your right the meter base belong to you. POCO doesn't have to plug their meter into it.
$120.00 a year rent, highway robbery . . . . . . .
Several years ago electrician's could buy a whole house surge protector that plugged into the meter base. When the POCO's got wind of it they put a stop to it. There reason was electricians were not allowed to pull their meters. But for a monthly fee they would be glad to install one. Another example of big business running over the little guy.
