Basically, on every home there needs to be a meter to record the homeowners power consumption. Traditionally, meters were located on the front or side of the home closest to where the power enters the property from the street. Conversely, a meter pedestal is a stand alone remote structure away from the house that the meter is mounted to. Meter pedestals can take the form of a wood pole, pressure treated post, concrete retaining wall, small outbuilding or any other remote structure.
Generally speaking, if your Penticton, Summerland or Naramata home is more than 200 feet, or 60 meters, from the nearest power pole a meter pedestal may be a good option. At Pilot Electric Services, we’ve installed countless underground and overhead services and can present you the full array of options available. Need a 400 amp underground service?
