    Default Solar power meter installation costs.

    Just a heads up if your having a solar system installed.

    The cost of having the power meter replaced with a new meter varies wildly. I was recently asked to sign a form authorizing the replacement of my meter which stated I would pay within 30 days or via credit card on the spot. Problem was the cost of the meter and total installation cost was blank. I challenged this and asked what was the cost to be told by the installer he did not know but the installation paper work could not be finalized without a new meter.

    Anyway I recalled a friend having one installed for $220.00 so I called him and spoke to the company he used to do the swap they quoted $330.00. I then called AGL the supply company and was told they could do it for $109.00 all up and added to the next bill.

    I do not know what the cost of the original install paper work would have been but I am guessing a lot more than $109.00

    That would depend if the house is on single phase power or 3 phase power, I've just had to buy the meter and my house is single phase so the cost is $205.00 which can be paid off over time through my power bills. If my has was 3 phase I think the cost for the meter was $336.00.
