I recently installed a 200 amp UG service with a pedistal meter. The utility forced me to change the meter the one with a disconnect before they would connect. If you drive 1 mile down the road someone installed the same service but no disconnect. There is a requirement to have one there. I agree with the requirement and I am happy to comply. How is it that the utility is alowed to pick and choose where they enforce the rules. How can I compete when the next guys bid is $300.00 less because he can get away with it. This is not the first time I have seen this problem, and not just meters.
