Free Electricity is Rare From an Electric Utility Company – but it did Happen – This is a very rare occurrence. I have only heard of one other instance of this being done by an electrical utility power company.

Free Electricity is Rare From an Electric Utility Company

Electrical Question: A question about new service meter box procedures raises interesting situation about electrical service.

I applied for a new electric service and meter.
The utility company installed the overhead drop and I had power.
I waited for over 12 months, and in the interim the power company gave me free electricity by shunting the meter box. Not complaining, but why would they do that, instead of just giving me the meter?
Have you ever heard of just practices, even for shorter durations, etc?
