The load side of an electric meter can be wired to the electrical disconnect or electrical panel. To do this, connect the two hot wires on the bottom two terminals of the meter. These will be directly below the two hot line connections. Strip the wires and insert them into the terminal. Tighten the screws until they are tight and tug on the wires to be sure that the connection is tight.
