If you are an electrician or contractor that is scheduled to perform work for a member of Somerset REC and need the meter pulled, please contact the co-op office at 814-445-4106, or toll free at 1-800-443-4255 to schedule a disconnect/reconnect appointment.
By having this appointment scheduled, an authorized Somerset REC employee will temporarily disconnect the power to allow you to perform necessary work on or around the electrical service.
Appointments to schedule a crew can generally be made with as little notice as the day ahead, and depending on the nature/reason for the disconnect and the current workload, some appointments can even be made within the same day.
There is NO CHARGE from the Cooperative to our members for a disconnect/reconnect appointment during normal business hours.
If there is an emergency situation during non-business hours such as a holiday or weekend, please call 814-445-4106 and report the situation to the person on-call.
*Please keep in mind that any time a meter is pulled to do electrical repairs or upgrades, an electrical inspection is needed before the meter is reconnected.
You can find a list of electrical inspectors here.
We would rather everyone remain safe than to risk the situation created by opening a meter base.
