Electric Meter Services

Upgrading or Need an Old Meter Replaced?

Upgrading your electric meter and updating your service from 100 amps to 200 amps are a couple of ways to keep your home’s electrical system from getting overloaded. If you’re not sure of what you need based on your electricity use, you can start with a Whole Home Electrical Load Calculation. It’s possible that 200 amps or more might be necessary—especially when you consider both your current and your potential future needs. If you plan to get an electric car or finish your basement, include these in your calculations.

The National Fire Protection Agency updates the National Electrical Code (NEC) every three years. This may sound excessive for national codes, but when you take into consideration the rapid evolution of technology, it’s simply necessary. The technology boom of the last couple of decades has spiked the average American’s electrical consumption significantly.

More and more of our daily lives transition to electrically powered technological platforms every day and there’s no sign of that slowing down any time soon. Consider this: with every new device, there is a new demand made on your home’s electrical system. Whether that’s powering your high-res TV or charging your electric car, we simply demand more of our electrical system than we did 20 years ago.
