    Then typically the utility owns anything upstream of the meter.
    This is generally true but, given that the meter was mounted on the pole and the pole was on private property, it's possible that conductors to main utility line to the meter were the customers. For instance, if you have an overhead service at your home you are responsible from the service strike - where the overhead drop attaches to the house - and downstream. This isn't really any different, but will depend on the particular utility and governing jurisdiction.

    Well, the tenant reports he got a regular pole from a friend, installed it, hooked up everything, and the power company came out yesterday and turned the power back on. So everything is working fine now.

    Thanks everyone for the responses.

    Whether electrical, cable, phone, or water, the utility typically owns to the billing point. And the Utility is responsible to that point. On your side of the billing point, you are responsible. Meters and splice boxes are owned by utilities and considered billing point.

    While the thread isn’t ancient, the issue has been remedied.


    You are incorrect about your “to the billing point” whatever thst is.

    Meters bases, when dealing with AEP, are owned by the customer. The meter itself is owned by the utility. Regardless, the customer is almost always considered to be the owner of the service drop. That is the section of wire and infrastructure from the meter up to the point where the utility would connect to said wires.

    In the case at hand, the pole could be owned by either the home owner or the utility. It is specific to that installation.
