Electrical Service Connection and Meter

Your home’s electricity starts with the power service and electric meter. The utility company’s service cables (whether overhead or underground) extend to your house and connect to the utility’s meter base. The electric meter plugs into this meter base. The meter measures the amount of electricity your home uses and is the basis for the charges on your electric bill. The meter runs only when electricity is used in the house.
