BWL Meter Department Extends Hours

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- The Board of Water and Light Meter has expanded hours to accommodate electrical contractors and customers who need replacement parts required for power restoration.

The BWL Meter Department is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. until further notice, and is located in Building "G" at 1140 S. Pennsylvania.

The equipment is free of charge to contractors and customers. It important to note that customers should pick up these parts only at the direction of their electrical contractor:

  • · 200 Amp Residential Meter Socket
  • · Meter Hubs in these sizes: 1", 1 ¼", 1 ½", 2", 2 ½"
  • · Nylon Screw type House Knobs
  • · Nylon Riser Clamp Knobs for 2" rigid Risers.

BWL power lines connect to a home or business at the vertical pole or "mast" on the sides buildings, or "house knobs" - those little knobs attached to the building. If the mast or house knobs are damaged or down, it's the customers responsibility to hire an electrician to repair the items before the BWL can reattach the power line to the building. The meter, which records the amount of electricity used, is BWL equipment and the responsibility of the utility.
