A meter on a grid-tied system allows power to flow to the consumer or back into the grid. You can find a meter at the normal service meter location or in proximity to PV components. In apartments and condos, multiple meters (and inverters) may be located indoors.

Meters carry dangerous electric current and should always be considered energized, just like any other PV system component. Never remove an electric meter! Evergy and the solar contractor are the most qualified personnel to evaluate and remove meters when necessary, and to secure the system.
