Current Standards for Meter Installation

New meter installations must now be underground. Please carefully consult our meter standards (download PDFs below) prior to installation. PenLight’s standards may exceed the national code; please make certain that your contractor is aware of the PenLight meter standards.

You are also required to obtain an electrical permit from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) prior to installation. The L&I offices are located at 950 Broadway, Suite 200, Tacoma, WA and can be reached by phone at 253-596-3808.
