Meter Poles

Wired meter poles and meter pedestals are available for purchase from Sumter EMC for installations requiring a meter pole or meter pedestal. Sales and delivery are limited to locations inside Sumter EMC's service territory in Georgia. 

These wired meter poles are complete with meter socket, mast, and 200-amp main breaker (or fuses for 600 volt rated disconnect poles). The breaker box includes unused breaker positions suitable for connecting outdoor electrical equipment such as heat pumps and water pumps. Sumter EMC will also deliver and set the meter pole for an additional fee. See the fee chart below.


A licensed electrician should install the wiring between the meter pole and the building. All permits required to receive service are the responsibility of the member.
