Pulling Meters

At Edgecombe-Martin County EMC, nothing’s more important than the safety of our members, employees and the general public.

That’s why we have policies in place to ensure that only Edgecombe-Martin County EMC personnel can access
cooperative-owned equipment, including our electric meters.

That means if you’re having work done at your home, farm, or business that would cause your electric meter and/or other cooperative-owned equipment to be disconnected or reconnected, your first call should be to Edgecombe-Martin County EMC. We are happy to schedule a time with you or your contractor to safely and promptly disconnect and reconnect your meter at no additional charge. New technology and metering equipment help cooperative staff monitor system reliability.
When a member or electrician removes a meter, notification is sent to cooperative personnel. It is known that sometimes members needing to perform electrical work on their side of the meter will temporarily pull the meter to complete work.
But disconnecting a meter without permission from the co-op is illegal, unsafe, and can result in fines for the member.
