Any electrical supplier should be able to obtain what you need.

You have to get all meters from the power company. They have to install the meter itself and lock tag it before they leave.
Why would you just need a meter. Do you plan on having a seperate service to the garage. If so, you have much more to be concerned about than the meter.

Thanks for your URL, I will check it out. To answer the other post,my detached garage has a sub pannel, I would like to add a sub meter onto it. I don't want to go thru PG&E. Once I have the part, my electrician will install that for me.
Thankyou all.
