I was speaking to my Generator service tech today. He described a transfer switch that mounts in the meter base. You/POCO removes the meter. The switch plugs into the meter socket and the meter plugs back into the switch.
I thought this was a great idea but I can't find any info on it. He could not remember the brand. He said Whitby Hydro was where he saw them but I can't find anything on their site.

This is functionally what you describe, but looks more involved than the plug-n-play type your tech indicated.

or this: http://home.att.net/~kstansbury/meter_base.htm

I did search of "meter socket transfer"
and "meter base transfer" on google

The generlink looks like it might the unit he was refering to. He did say it was 200 amp transfer switch.

Thanks.
