Hi,  Has anyone any experience of meter an indoor electric meter to outside of house so that meter readings can be done monthly without access to the house.  I have been disconnected because EDP hasnt read the meter for six months.  Annoying and only way to avoid this happening again is to re locate the meter to ouside of house.  EDP will do the actual move, but have said I need to get an electrician to "do the preparation work".  Not sure what that means.  But there is already a box for the water meter on my outside wall.  Any one suggest somebody that can do this or have a similiar experience they want to share.  Thanks.
