I'm worried they're going to pull my meter without telling me and accuse me of tampering with the meter. I called them today to see if they had a cover, but they said I need to get one from an electrician. I've heard of them screwing people over by pulling the meter when they thought someone tampered with it, and as long as that lead seal is gone, they could claim I tampered with it. They didn't ask my name so maybe they won't know it's missing, until I can replace it.
I'm going to try and get a new cover Monday. If I have to get an electrician to replace the box and conduit, how much appx. do you think an electrician will charge for labor? He would probably put in new wire too.
Home depot has the socket for $23.63, 125 AMP ringless-horn bypass. The conduit wouldn't be much, I could buy those, and probable save money, instead of getting them from the electrician.
I'm enclosing a link with a picture of the meter and socket, do you think that socket at home depot would work?
This is really not a good time for me to have a new expense.
Tomorrow I'm going to walk around the property and across the road to see if I can find the old cover. We've had a lot of wind here, but the cover hasn't had problems in the last three and a half decades, until now.
