How do you get electricity to your home when the meter is not there?

The sequence of events is like this. Apply for a connection to the home. At this point you will be told why the meter is missing. Maybe unpaid bills, problems with unsafe wiring etc.. If it is something to do with the wiring you will have to hire an electrical contractor to rectify the situation. He will take out the required electrical permits and get the home inspected when he has completed the job. Once the electrical inspector signs off on the house he sends a copy to the utility company stating that the house is now safe to connect to the utility's electrical service supply.
