Installing a Sub-Meter for Sharing Power with Tenants?

Kevin Kim
Posted May 28 2024, 11:44

There is one electric pole connected to both a metal building and a manufactured house. We use the metal building for warehouse purposes, and we will soon rent out the other metal building. We use very little electricity in the metal building. However, we do not want the tenant to pay for the electricity that we use.

I contacted Edison and the County to see if we could install an additional electric pole to have a separate meter, but they said it is not allowed to have more than one pole for our property.

I found a sub-meter on Amazon, and I wonder if it is allowed to install one on the electric pole, so our tenant can see how much energy we have used. This way, we can reimburse them for the power we use each month.

Please let me know what the best and/or easiest way to handle this would be.

Thank you.
