What is Meter Socket?

A Meter Socket is a part of the assembly that houses the power measurement meter (Watt Meter). It is the responsibility of the home owner / occupier to maintain the meter socket. A home owner must repair a meter socket on his own expense. Power companies will not connect power line or a meter to a damaged socket as per law. Maintaining a power meter is utility company’s responsibility but it must not be damaged by the actions of the home owner or occupier.
