Storm Center: Meter Box Repairs
When is an electrician needed? If there is damage to your meter box or the pole on top of your meter box, you must first have an electrician make repairs before Singing River Electric can restore power. The damage should be repaired by a qualified electrician and inspected by local officials.
If water enters the walls or ceilings, turn off circuit breakers or remove fuses and do not use electrical outlets. A qualified electrician must assess the damage and make necessary repairs before electric service can be restored.
If a temporary residence is established and electricity is needed to make repairs to a home or property, a temporary service pole must be installed by a qualified electrician and inspected by local government authorities before power can be reconnected.
