Electric MeterSome electrical devices remain a mystery to most homeowners, including electric meters. Have you ever wondered what is behind that glass-cased electric meter? How exactly do the electricians connect the overhead wires to the electric meter box anyway? And while we're at it, what do the wires connect to and why?

These are all very good questions and I'm about to give you a look inside, behind the mysterious electric meter box.
