How should I prepare?
Prior to the appointment date, make sure the meter is accessible. Boxes, enclosures, clothes, etc. should be moved away from the meter. Also, check the valves in front of and behind the meter. These valves should be turned on and off once a year. Maintaining these valves is a homeowner’s responsibility. The wire running from the meter to the external register will also be replaced. Should you wish to install conduit to enclose this wire, the conduit should be installed before the appointment date.
