Learn All You Need to Know about Meter Bases in California

A meter base is the unit on the exterior of your home that holds the power company’s meter. The electricity from the power company reaches the meter base first, then passes through to your electrical panel. At the meter base, the meter measures the amount of electricity going to the home so that the power company can determine what your energy cost is.

Most homeowners assume that the meter base is handled by the city or utility company. They are usually surprised to find that they are the ones responsible for maintenance of the meter base.
