Some Bryan Electric Services To Face Mandatory Upgrades

Some 240 Bryan Munic­i­pal Util­i­ties cus­tomers will soon likely have to replace their old, obso­lete, and in many cases, dam­aged elec­tric meter bases, and make upgrades to their ser­vice to at least 200 amp ser­vice within the next year. Accord­ing to a report in the Bryan Times, the affected cus­tomers own their own ser­vice bases mounted on the side of their homes or busi­nesses, and they will be respon­si­ble for the cost of the upgrades. Most of the ser­vices that need replace­ment, accord­ing to Bryan Munic­i­pal Util­i­ties, are old 60 amp ser­vices, which are no longer con­sid­ered ade­quate or even safe. Oth­ers are 100-amp bases that are show­ing signs of dam­age or exposed wiring. The bases are sep­a­rate from the glass-enclosed meters, which are owned by BMU. More infor­ma­tion is avail­able at the BMU ofice in Bryan.
