When is it time for a replacement?

The following are reasons why a meter base may need to be replaced:

  • Age.
  • Not under current National Electric Code (NEC), which means it most likely isn't up to city code.
  • If a permit is required for remodeling it may need to be replaced if it is not up to code.
  • It may need to be replaced when changing or upgrading the electrical panel in the home.
