After crews restore power from an outage, customers may need a licensed electrician to make repairs to their electric service entrance equipment.

Ameren installs and maintains these components:

The service drop carries energy from the service line to your home or business.

The electric meter monitors how much energy you are using.

You are responsible for these components:

The service bracket or pipe riser, which protects the connection point for the lines entering your home or business.

The weatherhead, which keeps rain and other material out of the pipe riser.

The pipe riser, which serves as a guide and protection for the lines entering the meter box.
