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. If you need a new meter base, or the utility company is requiring you to update or upgrade, no problem! Safe-Way Electric & Solar Co. can handle the job for you.

It's 9 PM on Saturday night. We were not getting any electricity to our tankless water heater or our solar system. We tried resetting the circuit breakers, the GFI socket, reading the manuals, the Internet, You Tube videos and it still didn't work. We called family & friends for recommended electricians, no luck there either. Finally my wife went to one of the phone books we normally just throw away and called Safe Way when we saw the "No overtime for night,weekend or holidays". The technician on the phone walked me through several actions over the phone. He said he'd try to help me before charging us to come out. It worked! And no charge. Safe Way will get our business from now on; hence this recommendation. Call them!
