So I had my service upgraded from 100 to 200 amp on March 25th.
Electrician did his thing - put in the sweet GIANT new panel, whole house surge - etc.
Town inspector came, gave it the green light. Emailed the POCO, CC'ed me and CC'ed the electrician.
It's April 21st and I still don't have an electrical meter
He also moved the attachment point to the house up about 4 feet (I guess regulations changed since 1930) so there's slack up there - when the POCO comes back they will replace everything from the pole to my house.
I just think it's kinda funny ... from what I can gather when they come and take the old meter (which is sitting on the ground) and put in a new one they are just going to bill me an average for the time the meter was gone - wouldn't the POCO want to get a meter in as soon as possible - I mean it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that nobody will know it if I am frivulous this month.
