They’ve installed meters and cabled them together so they can be read centrally. And they’ve seen those systems fail.
Why the failure? Meter cables exist in spaces shared with other tenants and with multiple types of wiring. Contractors access those shared spaces when a tenant wants to install new phones or computers, reconfigure offices, or upgrade lighting. Accidentally but inevitably, those contractors will damage or degrade the metering system as they try to solve their client’s problems.
