I thought maybe somebody here would know...
Does anyone know what the colors of the tags on electric meters (in Texas) mean? I saw a gold tag on a working electric meter the other day, but couldn't find a meaning. Of course, I saw a red tag on another meter on the side of the same building and that meter was also spinning wildly, so maybe my definitions are off. These are what I've seen so far and what I think they mean, and please correct if I'm wrong:
Silver tag - In service
Blue tag - Out of service, no retail electric provider "claims" it
(Found this definition by calling Texas-New Mexico Power and asking)
Red tag - Out of service, claimed by a REP and disconnected
Gold tag - ??--
