Binoculars are typical gear for electrical meter readers

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 10:05:00 +0000

Question: Do you know if the Hawaiian Electric meter readers must wear an ID tag on their clothing? The reason I ask was that on April 13 my wife said that the neighbor’s dog was barking at someone outside our neighbor’s house. When my wife looked outside she saw a male with shorts and a collared shirt using binoculars looking at the neighbor’s house where the electric meter is located. By the time she went outside to ask this person what he was doing, the person was already walking down the street. Do you know if this is how Hawaiian Electric meter readers are reading the electric meters? With binoculars? Can you find out if this is how they go house to house? If they do, then they certainly need to wear some kind of identification on them. My wife was kind of shaken because this could have been someone staking out homes that they want to burglarize.
