PVREA's Meter on House (MOH) trenching services are provided by Get Connected. Builders will need to purchase a PVREA approved meter base from a local electrical supply store.
Beginning January 2, 2020, the price for installing a MOH in all subdivisions will be $650 per lot.
Following is an overview of the MOH process.
If a temporary service is needed, you will install the temporary pedestal and call the appropriate inspection agency for your inspection. The inspecting agency will send the report directly to PVREA. When this report is received from the inspecting agency, PVREA will set up the account and process deposits if necessary. A crew will be scheduled to connect the temporary pedestal and set a meter on Tuesday or Friday, depending on when the inspection is received.
When you are ready for permanent service, you will need to purchase the PVREA approved meter base from a local electrical supply store and install it on the side of the house in the PVREA approved location. A specification has been attached for reference. The MOH fee will need to be paid by bringing the payment into our office or mailing the payment. Make sure the address you are paying for is listed on the payment. Once the meter base is installed, the fee paid, and the dig area is clear, contact PVREA or Get Connected to request the trench. Get Connected will notify PVREA when the trench is complete. You will also need to call the inspecting agency for your permanent inspection. This can be done independent of the trench request. Once the inspection release is received from the inspecting agency and the trench is complete, a crew will be scheduled to complete the permanent installation on Tuesday or Friday depending on when the inspection is received. All meter installations will be done on Tuesdays and Fridays.
